This is the ULTIMATE dressing - full of savoury Fall herbs like rosemary and sage, crunchy walnuts, sweet and tart cherries and flavourful, rich bison. Not only is it a family favourite for around Thanksgiving and Christmas, it’s great for stuffing into mushrooms and squash for an easy yet decadent weeknight meal.

  • Add the garlic, and herbs and continue to cook for another minute or two. Add the white wine and Worcestershire and cook for another 2 minutes.
  • Remove from heat source and allow to cool slightly. Add the vegetable stock, beef cubes, walnuts and cherries. Stir until liquid is absorbed.
