For my auspicious first post I give you… Bison meat.
My dad phones me yesterday and tells me that Crossroads market has a dealer selling bison meat from their farm. So I braved the crowds there on a Sunday to go find this source. I found the place, Sunwapta Bison, and purchase three kinds of steak of improving grade: Ribeye, New York, and Tenderloin. I also got the last of the hamberger patties, the only ones left were the large 6oz puppies.
I have one thawing right now for supper:
That’s it beside the bottle cap – it’s big and very lean looking.
I hope it tastes as good as it looks. Updates once it’s hit the stomach.
[Later Edit] Mmmm, tasty. A bit over done perhaps? But it kept bleeding red while I was flipping it, so I kept cooking it. Might need to turn down the heat a bit. They do shrink a bit – I think I would prefer the 5oz so I can eat two of these things without being starving at the time.
