Bison and Vegetable Kabobs with Couscous Salad
This recipe for bison and vegetable kabobs with couscous salad is a great way to bring big flavors to a healthy diet.

Recipe Ingredients:
1/2 cup and 1/4 cup, extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon granulated garlic
1 tablespoon cracked black pepper
1 tablespoon oregano
1 tablespoon basil
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon thyme
1 (16-ounce) package baby bella mushrooms, washed and drained
1 red onion
1 red pepper, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 yellow pepper, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 green pepper, cut into 1 inch pieces
3 bison steaks, cut into 1 inch pieces
Skewers
1 1/2 cups water, boiling (salted if desired)
1 1/2 cups instant couscous
1 green onion, sliced
Roasted squash and tomatoes
1 orange

Cooking Directions:
1 – To a measuring cup add a 1/2 cup of the extra virgin olive oil, red wine vinegar, granulated garlic, cracked black pepper, oregano, basil, sea salt, and thyme. Whisk to combine all the ingredients.
2 – Now pour half of this marinade into a bowl with the baby bello mushrooms, the red onion and the red, yellow and green peppers. Toss to coat. Save the tops and the bottoms of the peppers to add to the couscous salad later.
3 – To a medium bowl with the bison, add the other half of the marinade and toss.
4 – Now skewer the marinated vegetables and bison. Keep them separate because the bison will cook a lot faster than the vegetables.
5 – To a pot of 1 1/2 cups boiling water, add the couscous and cover, turning the heat off.
6 – Cook the vegetable skewers on the grill for 10 to 12 minutes, turning frequently, and then cook the bison skewers for about 3 to 4 minutes per side.
7 – Pour the cooked couscous into a large bowl and add the chopped reserved peppers, green onion, squash and tomatoes, 1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil and juice from 1/2 of the orange. Toss to combine.
8 – Serve with the skewers placed on top of the couscous salad.
Makes 6 to 8 servings.

Slow-Cooker Herb and Mushroom Braised Beef
With its comforting flavors contributed by savory meat, mushrooms, onions, carrots and fresh herbs, this slow-cooker braised beef is a wonderful supper on cold-weather days. Consider freezing it into portions for busy weeknight meals. You could also shred the meat and serve it on sandwiches…………………………………..

Perfect Prime Rib
Cooking prime rib can be intimidating–it’s such a big piece of meat and you’re usually making it for a special occasion, like Christmas or a formal dinner, so you want to get it just right. But it needn’t be stressful: This easy prime rib recipe calls for just a handful of ingredients and lays out how to cook prime rib so it’s juicy, tender and full of flavor, without a lot of fuss. Cooking the prime rib low and slow safeguards the meat from cooking unevenly. See the Tips section below for more advice on making the perfect prime rib. And if you have leftovers, they make a killer sandwich!………………………………………

Beef Rib Roast with Mushrooms and Fennel
The edible wild mushrooms you can find depend on where you live. They add woodsy and earthy flavors, but cultivated cremini and white buttons are delicious here too. Well-stocked supermarkets often have cultivated “wild” varieties like hen of the woods, matsutake, yellowfoot and hedgehog–all great in this recipe………………………………….

Today’s Menu: Chopped Bison Sirloin and Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Baked Potato and Texas Toast (Light)

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 88 degrees, partly cloudy, and very humid outdoors today. After Breakfast I went to Kroger and then on to Meijer grocery shopping. A bit humid to do a lot outside so I did some chores done inside. For Dinner tonight its one of our favorites, Chopped Bison Sirloin and Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Baked Potato and Texas Toast (Light).

We love these Chopped Bison Steaks from SayersBrook Bison Ranch! I had them in the freezer so I grabbed a package of 2 of it and let it thaw in the fridge overnight. To start I preheated the oven on 400 degrees. To prepare it I’ll need McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, McCormick Crushed Rosemary, and McCormick Thyme Leaves. I got the Cast Iron Skillet out to prepare it. I first sprayed it with a very light coat of Pam Cooking Spray and then added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated it on medium heat. When the pan was heated I added the Chopped Steak. I cooked each side 2 minutes.Then finished it in the oven, at 400 degrees for 8 minutes. It cooked up beautifully, perfect medium rare! Had a nice little char on the outside and moist and juicy inside. These are so tender you could slice them with a spoon and have an excellent taste to them. Just another very good item from SayersBrook Ranch!

I topped the Chopped Steak with some A-1 Sauce Thick/Hardy. Also cooked up some Sauteed Mushrooms.

 

I also prepared a Baked Potato. Seasoned that with the McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I also baked a slice of New York Bakery Lite Texas Toast, One delicious meal tonight. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s of Hanover Pretzels and a Sprite Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Mozzarella and Mushroom Bison Steak Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 88 degrees and partly sunny, had a light shower move through in late afternoon. I grabbed my Mask and I went to Kroger for Mom for a few items and then stopped by Wendy’s and picked up her Breakfast. A friend of mine came over after Lunch and I gave him a hand replacing the living room and dining room window blinds. The ones up were so old the slats were breaking in half, much needed new ones! That was about it for the day. For Dinner tonight I prepared Mozzarella and Mushroom Bison Steak Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

To make my Bison Steak Sandwich I used SayersBrook Bison Ranch Ground Bison Sirloin. I used a meat tenderizer to get it a bit finer and then formed them into patties. I had them in the freezer so I set them in the fridge overnight to thaw. To make the Steak Sandwich I’ll using the Bison with seasonings of McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley and McCormick Italian Seasoning. For toppings I’m going to Sautee some Mushrooms, Ragu Pizza Sauce, a slice of Kroger Mozzarella Cheese, and served on a Aunt Millie’s Deli Whole Grain Mini Sub Bun. I had 2 of the Steak Patties, I fried both of the them.

 

Then to prepare them I took a medium size skillet. Sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and heated it on medium heat. As it heated I added a tablespoon on Extra Light Olive Oil. Next I seasoned the Steaks. I started with a light rub of the Extra Light Olive Oil on both sides then I seasoned them with the Grinder Sea Salt and Grinder Peppercorn Medley and the Italian Seasoning. With the skillet ready I added both Steaks I fried them a total of 6 minutes, 3 minutes per side. After flipping the Patties I added a slice of Mozzarella Cheese with a minute of cooking time left. As these were cooking I added some sliced Mushrooms to a small skillet that I heated it on medium heat. Seasoned them and Sauteed them, set aside when done till needed.

I took the finished Steaks and put them on the bottom half of the Mini Sub Bun. Topped them with the Pizza Sauce and with the Sauteed Mushrooms. ready to serve! These turned out really good, excellent flavor! I didn’t have a small sirloin to pound out but I’m going to purchase some just to make a Steak Sandwich with. Really enjoyed these!

 

To go with my Steak Sandwiches I baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries, my favorites. Served with some Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Stick Pretzels with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


SayersBrook Ground Bison
Most times a recipe using ground meat cautions you to drain it as part of the preparation instructions. This is because of the fat content of the meat. In addition to being unhealthy, what you are draining is uneconomical. You’re pouring money down the drain, literally. With Ground Bison Meat from SayersBrook Bison Ranch, you won’t have this problem. In fact, we recommend that you spray your fry pan or skillet with a non-stick spray. It’s the good old American custom of getting what you pay for. Conveniently packaged in 1 lb units, Ground Bison Meat can be used in any recipe calling for beef. Now, you can make chili, lasagna, or your favorite casserole with delicious bison ground meat. One serving (1/3 lb) of ground bison contains 11 g fat, 270 calories, 0 g carbs and 31 g of protein.

Classic Hamburger
Slow-cooked onions add moisture and flavor to these lean beef burgers. A quick blend of mayonnaise, ketchup, relish and vinegar makes a perfect tangy, sweet and creamy “special sauce” for this burger. We love the dill relish here, but use sweet relish if you prefer it. Serve with sweet potato fries…………………………………

Mushroom-Swiss Turkey Burgers
In this gluten-free turkey burger recipe, lean ground turkey stands in for ground beef, and portobello mushrooms produce a juicy, flavorful alternative to the traditional bun. Melted Swiss cheese, sliced tomato and arugula top off this delicious low-carb dinner!…………………………….

Kimchi Pork Burgers
This amped-up burger recipe swaps out beef for ground pork: it gives you similar nutrition (protein, iron, zinc) but has a milder flavor to allow this recipe’s bold Asian flavors to sing…………………………..
