How to Make Healthy Country Bison Stew

Delicious Country Bison Stew Recipe

There is so much snow today in Boulder that everything outside looks beautiful. Even my dog wants to go and play in the snow. However, am not interested in playing. Instead, I just want to snuggle all day in bed and have some hot delicious meal.

I chose to make myself a Polish Bison stew to nourish my body and soul in this cold weather. It is a simple procedure that starts with searing the chunk of Bison meat in avocado oil or olive oil. Next, I will slowly braise it with onions and garlic. I will leave it in the oven for a couple of hours to have it tender and to have a rich extravagant sauce.

It may take some time to get it ready, but you will love it. The wait is definitely rewarding. The delicious stew can feed a large family or group of friends. The longer it sits, the better the stew improves. Therefore, I like to prepare it a day prior to the party.

The secret to a delicious Bison stew is to pick the meat wisely. The chunk must have good fat veining through it. Avoid meat that is too lean because it doesn’t produce the right flavor. Lean meats do not tender well. In addition, season your chunk f bison with lots of rich spices.

Take time to brown the pieces of bison meat in batches in a large pot. It may take time but there is no shortcut to an amazing bison stew. This procedure heightens the dimension and depth of the stew. Crowd the pan with your delicate cuts at once. This ensures a lovely flavor and color.

Get the meat out of your pot and let it sit for a while. Add onions, balsamic vinegar, and garlic to the pot. These ingredients loosen the brownish bits stuck at the bottom of the pot while adding rich flavor.

Add the bison steak pieces into the pot again. Sprinkle the food with grated or cut arrowroot. To ensure that the arrowroot is dissolved, stir the mixture gently. Next, add your tasty herbs and spices such as basil, allspice, sage, and thyme along with the broth.

Let the meat boil after which you will cover it and braise for 2 hours in the oven. Next, add some parsnip, celery root, and diced carrot to the meal. Now you are not too far away from your perfect bison stew.

Return the food to the oven again and let it cook for an hour until the meat is tender. When the veggies are tender and the broth is well thickened, you know you are doing a good job. It is time to serve your hungry guests.
