Recipes for Cooking Bison Steaks
Bison Steak is an incredibly lean, and tasty choice for a meal. When cooked correctly, bison steak should rival any of the best steaks you’ve ever had, in both tenderness and flavor.
But how to cook bison steak is a common question, as special care should be taken due to the leanness of the meat. Bison can be easy to overcook, if it is cooked too fast or too well-done. So, we’ve included some videos below to help you get started cooking your own bison steaks at home.
You’ll notice that many of these video recipes are done in the cast iron skillet, however, you can successfully cook bison steaks with a variety of methods, including broiling and grilling. The Cast Iron Skillet just happens to be one of my favorites (particularly since I live in a place where I can’t use my grill half of the year due to the weather!)
#1 How to Cook Bison Filet Mignon (Cast Iron Skillet)
The Bison Filet Mignon is far and away the most popular bison steak we have on our site. They are INCREDIBLY lean with only 3g of fat in a 6 oz. filet. But, as you can see in this video, they can be quite easy to cook to give you the perfect cut of bison meat.
#2 How to Cook Bone-In Bison Ribeye Steak (Grill)
The Bone-In Bison Ribeye is the perfect steak for anyone who prefers their meat “on-the-bone”. This larger 14 oz. steak has a little extra fat and insulation compared to most other bison steaks and thus cooks very well. It should leave you with a wonderfully tender steak!
#3 How to Cook Bison Top Sirloin Steak (Cast Iron Skillet)
The Bison Top Sirloin is another great choice for those who want to find as lean a cut as possible. While larger than the Filet Mignon, at 10 oz., you can see from this steak that it has very little fat and marbling. The recipe above shows it cooking in a cast iron skillet with mushrooms and rosemary for an amazing meal!
#4 Bison Ribeye Steak with Honey Bourbon Cream Sauce (Cast Iron Skillet)
This recipe has quickly become one of my very favorites due to the delicious sauce atop our amazing 12 oz. Bison Ribeye. Like the Bone-In version, the Bison Ribeye Steak has a little extra fat and marbling, giving it wonderful flavor. Pairing it with the Honey Bourbon sauce in this video really sets it apart.
