Bison, Lamb & Duck

Cindy R
This bison is really delicious, mild and sweet flavored, while absolutely lean. We use it for everything instead of ground beef.

Love these. My wife who rarely tries anything different says they are the best burgers she's had.

Always extremely tender, more flavorful than a traditional filet mignon.

A naturally strong animal with a hardy immune system, Bison never need antibiotics or hormones — they grow at their own pace on the land, grazing on sweeping pastures of natural grasses and sedges. Blackwing bison live stress-free and are raised and managed in ways to preserve their natural instincts and behaviors. This way of living translates to the health and taste of the product — it’s mild, never gamey, and full of rich, buttery flavor similar to that of beef.

Bison Cooking Guide

Sometimes referred to as America’s “original red meat,” an estimated 60 million bison used to roam the American countryside. Providing around 17 grams of protein per raw 4-ounce (113-gram) serving, bison is an excellent source of protein. It packs a good amount of essential nutrients, including protein, iron, zinc, selenium, and B vitamins with a similar taste to leaner cuts of beef. Since bison has much lower fat content, it has a slightly drier texture with an earthier flavor.

Cut Type Method Cook Temp Avg Time Finish Temp
Bison Ground Sear 375 °F 4-7 mins 160 °F
Bison Steaks Sear 450 °F 9-12 mins 145-160 °F
Bison Roasts Oven 275 °F 7-8 hours 145-160 °F
Bison Dogs Grill 350 °F 6-9 mins 160 °F

Note: The above guidelines are only guard rails. Average time depends on size/amount of meat. Stoves and pans vary in performance as well; so to achieve perfectly cooked bison, it's best to have a meat thermometer handy and check internal temp so meat never exceeds 160 °F.
