Tap For Ingredients


Seared Bison Sirloin

  • Heavily season the sirloin on both sides with salt and pepper.
  • Heat up a cast iron pan on medium high heat and add oil.
  • Sear the sirloin on both sides until you get a beautiful brown crust. Depending on the likening of your doneness, using a meat thermometer, remove from the pan when your steak has hit 120°F.
  • Let rest on a rack for approximately 10 minutes with a knob of butter and some thyme.
  • Clean out your cast iron with some paper towel and remove from heat.
  • Place the pan back on high heat and add a small amount of oil. Add the sirloin and add a large knob of butter, thyme, and garlic. The butter should start to brown and get foamy.
  • Baste your sirloin for about 2 minutes to bring up to 130°F for the perfect medium-rare sirloin.

Black Garlic Butter

  • In a mixer with the paddle attachment on medium-high speed, whip all ingredients together to make compound butter.
  • Add the mixture to your sirloin and store any remaining butter in the freezer for next time!

Truffle Parmesan Fries

  • In a deep fryer or heavy bottom sauce pot, heat up a large amount of oil to submerge fries and bring to 350°F.
  • Fry until golden brown.
  • Season with salt, Parmesan, truffle oil and parsley/chives and serve.

Chef Tip: Bison is leaner than beef so don’t cook that beautiful bison steak past medium!
