Living in the country, an hour away from the closest grocery, I often substitute ingredients in recipes, which can sometimes lead to a whole new recipe. My rendition of Harissa Sauce is one of those recipes. It’s my new favorite sauce and although it is terrific on everything (including a spoon), it is particularly great on Wild Idea Bison Sirloin Steaks (or any of our cuts)!

Ingredients: (Makes 2 to 4 servings)

2 – 6 ounce Wild Idea Buffalo Sirloin Steaks
1 – teaspoon chili powder
½ – teaspoon caraway seeds
½ – teaspoon coriander
½ – teaspoon cumin
½ – teaspoon salt
3 – garlic cloves
1/3 – cup roasted red peppers (I always keep a jar on hand in my pantry)
1 – tablespoon olive oil
1 – lemon, juiced
2 to 4 – quality buns, brushed with oil and lightly toasted

1 – Rinse the steaks under cold water and pat dry with paper towels.
2 – Using a fine tine fork, pierce the steaks at an angle a few times on each side. This will assist with getting the flavors of the Harissa Sauce into the meat.
3 – Mix the spices, roasted red peppers, olive oil, and lemon juice together in a blender and puree until smooth.
4 – Rub half of the Harissa Sauce into the prepped steaks, cover and allow them to rest for 2 hours before cooking, or make ahead of time and place in refrigerator to marinade, removing 2 hours before cooking to allow steaks to come to room temperature. Reserve and refrigerate the other half of the Harissa Sauce for the mayonnaise.
5 – Preheat grill to 500°. Shake off excess marinade and grill over hot heat for 2 minutes on each side. Remove steaks from the grill, cover, and allow them to rest for 5 minutes.
6 – Slice steaks thin and pile on to toasted buns. Top with Harissa Mayonnaise, recipe listed below. Fabulous!
7 – Roasted Red Pepper Harissa Mayonnaise
This tasty condiment will keep in a sealed jar in your refrigerator for up to a month.


½ – batch Harissa Sauce
2 – tablespoons mayonnaise
2 – tablespoons cider or rice vinegar
¼ – cup onions, finely diced
¼ – cup cilantro, chopped
1 – Gently mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl with a fork. Place in a sealed jar and refrigerate until needed. Pull the mayonnaise out about an hour before using to let it come to room temperature.
