Naturally lower in fat and calories than beef, with a rich, sweet flavor , this less-common meat is a good source of iron, which plays a crucial role in transporting oxygen to your muscles.
Shop for it: If your supermarket doesn’t carry ground bison, look for it at a local farmer’s market, or buy it frozen from one of many online vendors.
Blend it: Mix ground bison with a splash of flavorful sauce, like Worcestershire or sriracha, to add moisture and complement the meat’s natural depth.
Cook it: Take care not to overcook bison—the extra-lean meat is prone to scorching. Instead, grill it over medium heat until it just reaches an internal temperature of 160 degrees F .
