Bison Beef

Tonight I made taco soup with bison beef! I've never cooked with it before, apparently it is really really really lean and has more protein than regular cow beef. I noticed that when I was browning it, there was zero grease. I really didn't taste a difference, although any flavor (or lack thereof) may have been masked by the tasty/spicy soup it was stirred into. I didn't tell Andrew (or my sister & her husband who came over) that it wasn't regular beef. Mwahahaha....I'll have to ask them and see if they noticed any difference.

I purchased a pound of it at Health Nut (in Wyndhurst) and it was pricier than regular beef, but worth a shot. It was $9.95/lb. Anyway, I thought it was great and it gets the Hutcheson stamp of approval!


  1. Thats good to know. I have wanted to try it but I heard it taste "wild" whatever that means....thanks for testing it out. I think I might give it a try.

  2. I was interested to see how it tasted too! I'm glad you posted about this.

  3. I thought it was fine - when browning it, it did seem a bit more rubbery than beef-beef, but I didn't taste any difference in soup! Enjoy!
