From meatloaf to tacos, we're sharing 6 delicious and family-friendly ground bison recipes in this comprehensive post about ground bison.
what does bison taste like?
To start, I thought I'd touch on the taste of bison. When you're talking about bison vs beef taste, bison tends to have a more delicate flavor than beef. It's even described as sweeter than beef which I know is an odd term when talking about meat.
cooking with ground bison
When cooking with ground bison, there are a few main points to keep in mind.
- Ground bison is lean, meaning there's less fat than the average ground beef. If you're making a recipe that uses the fat from the meat to saute vegetables, you may need to add a little extra oil or butter to make up for the lack of fat in bison.
- It cooks faster because it has less fat. Less fat means less insulation, which means the meat cooks quicker than beef. I find this helpful but if you get busy while cooking, it can start to burn pretty quickly.
