Bison may not be included in your family’s usual meals, but why not? Did you know that Bison is naturally lean and lower in saturated fat than beef, chicken, pork and even salmon? It is also low in cholesterol, low in sodium, and a great source of iron. I was unaware of the benefits of eating Bison and didn’t even know if there was a difference between buffalo and bison.
High Plains Bison is paving the way for Bison to be a family meal staple by offering flavor without compromise. All products are all natural – no hormones, fillers, antibiotics or artificial ingredients and 100% USDA certified. Their bison roam the land and eat native vegetation, get fresh air, clean water and warm sunshine. High Plains Bison believes in respect and responsible husbandry, as well as a genuine desire to foster the survival of the species.
What does Bison taste like? Well, your kids probably won’t even taste the difference between bison and the beef they eat on a regular basis, but my family and I noticed the steaks as juicier and more tender than your average steak. High Plains Bison describes the taste like.. “the red meat you already know and love, but with a bigger, richer flavor that starts out hearty, then finishes with a hint of salty sweetness. It boasts a delicious juiciness and tender texture that makes it one of the most sought-after delicacies among steak enthusiasts.”
Bison steaks aren’t the only cut available, High Plains Bison sells a wide variety of products including bison burgers, ground bison, bison dogs, Cajun style andouille sausage, Italian sausage (which I ate in my eggs for breakfast, photo above) cocktail sausages, pot roast, ribs, pastrami and many more.
You can purchase High Plains Bison on their website, in select club stores, high-end, and specialty grocers nationwide as case-ready, frozen and packaged bison products.
