The bison brats are a favorite! The flavors are very tastey and did not disappoint.
The bison jerky was hard to chew.
I was really disappointed with the bone-in ribeye. It had orange tissue that was hard to chew. It reminded me a lot of the jerky.
The ground bison is great! I used a StayClassy Chili recipe and it turned out really good!
To date, we’ve sampled only 2 different steaks from last month‘s bison order – the bone-in ribeye and top sirloins which were grilled to rare doneness on our gas grill. Both experiences were quite disappointing. One sirloin especially and both ribeye steaks were permeated throughout with connective tissue. It was impossible to cut them with a steak knife or even begin to masticate them enough for swallowing. We tried separating the meat from the connective tissue with our knives to eat but could not as it was so tough. Ultimately the steaks were chopped into small pieces with a “CLEAVER” for our dog, Such a shame - so pricey & not edible . We’ve never had bison and are hoping that the roast & ribs will be more tender. Hoping that the ground bison will be more palatable as well. Maybe ours was a “old “bison but I cannot recommend. Pictures provided. Zoom in on the one with the small pieces to see how pervasive the connective tissue was .
The quality of the meat is amazing. They are fresh, well packaged and all arrived frozen at my doorstep. My only concern is with such a high quality product that is so mindful of providing grass-fed meat to it's customers, how would they even consider forcing us to take a product like the jerky that has MSG in it? What a waste of my money in that regard. They should offer the option to take just the 1/8th of the bison without the other add ons for those of us that care about those types of additives.
