- Bison steak needs less cooking time than beef because it is very lean.
- Even if you usually prefer your steak medium, go for medium-rare with your bison steak, and you will be amazed by the wild and natural flavour.
- If you pan fry your bison steak, sear it in hot oil or butter for 3-5 minutes per side. Finish with a little pat of butter on the steak. (Rest the bison steak after cooking but cover with a bit of foil for about 7 minutes.)
