Bison Steaks (2x 170g) Price: £16.23


Bison have adapted to the change in the worlds climate and have been found in North America for the past 10,000 years. Bison is a low fat meat and varies in tenderness dependent on the cut. Individual Bison cuts are identical to beef, except for its colour which is a deeper red.  Simply treat Bison like a well hung beef and serve rare or medium rare.

The Bison is North Americas largest native animal and since the 1990's has been extensively farmed. All the Bison cuts are similar to beef, although generally requires a significantly reduced cooking time. It is important that Bison isn't over cooked as this will compromise its juicy and tender characteristics.
