Today’s Menu: Bison Sirloin and Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Baked Potato and Sugar Snap Peas


Another Sunny Spring like day outside. Got the 4 wheel mobility cart out along with my fishing pole and tackle box. Spent most of the Great Range Bison Sirloin 001day down by the community lake fishing. Nothing more relaxing and peaceful. Caught a few small Bass that I released back, Nice Day! For dinner; Bison Sirloin and Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Baked Potato and Sugar Snap Peas.


I used another of the Great Range Bison Sirloin Steaks. I have an order coming next week from Wild Idea Buffalo. ordered some Top Sirloin, Ground Buffalo, and premade Buffalo 1/4 lb. Burgers. So for tonight’s dinner I pan fried my Steak in Canola Oil about 4 minutes per side. I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. I topped it with a side of Sauteed Mushrooms. Sauteed in Butter and Extra Virgin Olive Oil and seasoned with Roasted Cumin, Thyme, and Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper.

For side dishes I had a Baked Potato that I seasoned with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper and topped with Newman’s Own Pineapple Salsa. I also had Walmart Marketside Sugar Snap Peas. Love these, everybody that I’ve got to try these love them! They come in a microwavable bag. Just heat for 2 minutes and their done. Quick, easy, and delicious. For dessert later a slice of Pillsbury Nut Quick Bread topped with 2 scoops of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream.

With the Spring here it’s time to tune those grills up! When their ready and fired up what better than a Top Sirloin or any of the other cuts of Buffalo from Wild Idea Buffalo. Below are some basic hints for grilling Buffalo with charcoal. I left the Wild Idea Buffalo web site link at the bottom of the post. Now get ready, Get set, GRILL!
Buffalo Steaks on a Charcoal GrillWild Idea Top Sirloin

Basic how-to instructions for cooking steaks on a charcoal grill.

Ideal for: Tenderloin Filets, Ribeyes, New Yorks, Top Sirloin, Sirloin, Bone-in Ribeye, Porter House, T-Bones and Terres Major Filet

Some swear there’s nothing like a charcoal grill. We say it’s even better with bison. Rub steaks with olive oil, salt, and pepper or the rub you love. Let them rest at room temperature for 2 hours before cooking.

*Use a clean grill.
*Pile coals high in center and allow them to get white-hot.
*Spread coals evenly with tongs, then place oiled grill grate low and close to coals.
*Apply prepared steaks and cover with lid, following cooking times below.

Steak Cooking Times

These guidelines are to medium rare.
Adjust time according to steak’s thickness and personal preference.
We recommend cooking steaks no more than medium.

Thickness First side Second side
1 inch 3 minutes 2 minutes
1½ inch 4 minutes 4 minutes

Today’s Menu: Top Sirloin Steak & Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Baked Potato, Green Beans, and Whole Grain Bread


Another rainy and dreary day around here today. Spent the biggest part of the day cleaning the house and baking cookies. As for dinner I prepared Top Sirloin Steak & Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Baked Potato, Green Beans, and Whole Grain Bread.
I used another of Costco Top Sirloin Steaks. I prefer Bison but with the cost of Bison going up I use Beef from to time, and you can’t beatcostco top sirloin 006 Costco’s Steak for flavor! if I have to eat Beef I prefer Costco’s. I’ve yet to have a bad cut of Steak from them. As I said earlier the taste of these Steaks is heaven! The only seasoning you need for these is a little Sea Salt and Black Pepper. I pan fried it in Canola Oil about 5 minutes per side. Medium Rare and Delicious just like I like them! I topped it with Sauteed Baby Bella Mushrooms.


For side dishes I had a Baked Potato that I topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter, Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper. Along with the Potato I had a single serving can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Meat and Potatoes w/ 7 Grain Bread

Dinner was basic but flat out delicious! Meat, Potatoes, Mushrooms, and Bread pretty basic. I normally have Bison when I have Steak but I couldn’t pass these Top Sirloin slab of meat up when at Jungle Jim’s Market the other day. They age and cut all their own meats there and it’s some of the finest around. This was one huge Top Sirloin. I cut in half and could have cut it into thirds and stll had plenty. After slicing it into 2 pieces I rubbed Extra Virgin Olive Oil on to both pieces and seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea salt and Black Peppercorn. I pan fried the steaks in Extra Virgin Olive Oil on medium. I had to fry the steaks way longer than normal because of how thick they were. I fried them about 5 1/2 minutes per side and flipped them on to their sides for about 1 minute each. They came out incredible! A beautiful crust on the outside and a pink moist center on the inside. I only had half of the steak so I’ll be having the other half in the morning with some of the leftover Roasted Red Potatoes and a Sunny Side Up Egg for breakfast! Plus I still have the second steak left and I’ll be making some sandwiches or hogies with that. This steak has paid for itself!


For sides I prepared Sauteed Mushrooms, Roasted Red Potatoes, and 7 Grain Loaf Bread. I left the recipe for the Roasted Red Potatoes at the end of the post. If your looking for a good recipe for potatoes give this one a try! For dessert/snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Jolly Time Pop Corn. Pop Corn’s perfect for tonight while laid back in the easy chair watching my beloved Cincinnati Reds and then watching one of my all – time favorite westerns “Silverado” Good Night All!
