Buffalo Steaks (Bison Steaks) Are Becoming Popular Taste and Health Champions

More and more people are buying buffalo steaks online.

According to the USDA Handbook Nutrient Data, bison has only ¼ the fat of beef, 1/4 the fat of pork and 1/3 the fat of chicken. And we all know how turkey is low in fat? Well, bison has only ½ the fat of turkey. Amazing!

By the way, buffalo and bison are different names for the same animal.

More and more health-conscious people are choosing grass fed beef and buffalo. We first tried buffalo from our neighbor Lindell Winters in Blue Grass, Iowa. You will not find a leaner meat anywhere. The recipe here is good because the mushroom gravy will not allow the meat to become too dry.

Bison Steak Recipe with Mushroom Gravy


3 bison steaks such as tenderloin or sirloin, about 1 pound each
3-4 tablespoons olive oil or melted butter
1 onion, sliced thin
1 garlic, crushed
1 bell pepper, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons tomato catsup
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 can mushrooms
3-4 parsley sprigs, finely chopped
salt and pepper


Season steaks on both sides with salt and pepper. Set steaks in heavy skillet with enough oil or melted butter to prevent steaks from sticking. Sear steaks on both sides. Remove steaks and place on serving platter.

Into the same skillet or heavy frying pan place onion, bell pepper and garlic. Stir constantly until onion is browned. Add all remaining ingredients. Add water to preferred thickness and stir. Cook this gravy about 3 minutes. Pour gravy over buffalo steaks, serve hot. Enjoy the taste and aroma. You’re in for a treat--and so is everyone at your table!
