Bison Bombay Bowls

Bison is a versatile meat – not only is it perfect for burgers and steak, but it has a complimentary flavor that goes well with sweet and savory profiles. These healthy, Indian-influenced bison Bombay bowls are served on a bed of tangy fried rice and topped with a mango-curry yogurt sauce.

In this recipe, the bison striploin is sliced thin and sautéed for just long enough to sear the meat while keeping it juicy. It should have a warm pink center when cooked medium-rare. It’s recommended to cook bison no more than medium-rare as beyond that it can get overcooked.

  3. Add about one tablespoon of olive oil to a large skillet or wok over high heat. Sauté the onions until tender then add in the baby corn and peppers. Continue to cook 2-3 minutes then add in the garlic.

  4. Add the cooked Basmati rice to the skillet along with tamari sauce, rice vinegar and lime juice. Stir until the rice is heated through then add the mango and cilantro. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes and then set aside and keep warm.

  5. Clean the skillet and add in one more tablespoon of olive oil. Sauté the bison striploin for 2-3 minutes, until the bison is browned and cooked medium-rare. It should still be juicy and pink in the middle.
