Tap For Ingredients


  • Heat a Dutch oven over medium high heat (on the stove or the grill, over direct heat) for 3-4 minutes. Add the avocado oil and allow to warm for 2 minutes.
  • Add the bison cubes in a single layer and season with salt and pepper. Do not stir, but allow to brown for 5-6 minutes before attempting to move. If the cubes are sticking to the bottom, it simply means they aren’t browned yet, and aren’t ready to release from the bottom.
  • Once browned on all sides, add the butter, then the onion, celery and garlic. Cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add the tamari, sun dried tomatoes, oregano, and vegetable broth. Cover and cook for 45 minutes to 1 hour, until the bison is tender.
  • Add the gnocchi and cook according to package directions. Stir in the spinach, basil, cream and cook until the spinach wilts. Season to taste.
  • Garnish with chopped chives or basil.
