Continuing with the meat theme . . . .
I read a little too much about feed lots and decided to try to find some pastured beef that did not go to a feed lot. Could not find much locally, but my local grocery store does carry bison meat. I have discovered I like it a lot. It has a good taste and, even though its not marbled, it cooks up tender when braised or made into stew. It's much healthier than grain fed beef.
It is a little more per pound, but when you consider that there is not nearly as much fat, it's not that much more in reality. I like the stew meat, ground bison (hamburger), roasts and short ribs. I think it braises/stews better at a slightly lower temp. than beef. I like to put a stew or roast in a cast iron dutch oven in the oven at 290 degrees and cook for 2-3 hours.
I have not tried steak, but we don't eat much steak anyway.
Anybody else try/like/not like this meat? Anybody raise the critters?
