Over the weekend my Husband requested a Bison Burger. This week, my mission was to make it for him. If you are not familiar with the term bison here’s what it is: the American bison (Bison bison), also commonly known as the American buffalo.
I invited my Mother in Law over as well so we could all get a taste of it.
I purchased the meat at Albertson’s, but I’m sure you can find this other places, meat markets, or locally at The Butcher Shop.
1 lb. of Ground Bison – makes 4 small burgers
2 tablespoons of Melted butter
1 tablespoon of Napa Style Roasted Garlic Gray Salt or your favorite seasonings
Pepper to taste
4 Hamburger Buns
Your favorite cheese slices (we used cheddar and jalapeno)
1 bowl of ice water
Turn on BBQ and make sure it’s clean and ready to use.
Make hamburger patties out of the bison. I made 3 large patties.
Dunk each patty in the bowl of ice water. This will help keep the juice inside the patty.
Brush melted butter on each side and smash the garlic gray salt into each burger.
Sprinkle some cracked black pepper on each side.
Lay burgers on the grill and depending on how you like them cooked, BBQ them for about 5 minutes on each side. Put your hamburger buns on the grill when they are 1 minute from being done, and add cheese to the top of each burger. Turn the grill off and close the lid so the cheese melts.
Serve with your favorite side dishes and condiments. I made salad and Garlic Fries that you can find in the frozen section at Trader Joe’s.
