  2. Rub with the chopped mixed herbs and crushed juniper berries.
  3. Season with salt and crushed black pepper.
  4. Pan sear in very hot olive oil on all sides. Remove from heat, chill.
  5. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and freeze.
  6. Blanch the baby vegetables, chill and set aside for service.


  1. Unwrap the frozen bison petite tender; let sit at room temperature for five minutes.
  2. On a slicer, shave the bison paper thin – it should be almost translucent, but still full slices.
  3. Lay the slices on the plate as they come off the slicer, forming an attractive pattern over 3/4 of the plate.
  4. Place an assortment of the blanched vegetables in a pan, with a drizzle of the balsamic reduction, and roast at high heat for 6-7 minutes.
  5. Drizzle the Shiraz reduction over the sliced carpaccio, and add the roasted vegetables.
  6. Finish the plate with the shaved Asiago cheese and a twist of fresh black pepper.
