Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 60 minutes

Yield: Serves 6-8

Also try: ground wild game, turkey, beef, veal and pork

Ingredients

  • 1 carrot
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 stalk celery
  • 2 cups button mushrooms (one standard package)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 ½ pounds ground bison
  • 1 egg, beaten

Instructions

  1. Blend the carrot, onion, celery and mushrooms in a food processor until fine but not pureed.
  2. Heat the oil and sauté the mixture until softened, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle with salt along the way to help release the juices.

“Venison Curry Stew”

_DSC3661v632

I brought a nice venison haunch back from my Girl Hunter Weekend in Arkansas. Ain’t it a beauty? It was aged for about 20 days. And since I was having a gathering of a large group of people I decided to put it to good use. I’ve made many stews before so I decided to …

“Redfish Courtbouillon”

_DSC6322v632

A few weeks ago in  Arkansas, my friend Paul Michael made a dish he makes regularly whenever someone has caught a nice redfish or bass. They all call it “coo-bee-on” and so I just assumed it was another one of their local regional dishes that this Yankee was unfamiliar with. And then I saw it …

Before I show you this recipe, I thought I should mention that if you like exotic meats like Wagyu Beef, Venison, Elk, Lamb and Bison, I’m giving away an organic Exotic Burger Collection from Fossil Farms on my Facebook Page, so be sure and enter! Now for the recipe… I just finished a mini road …

“Oryx Fajitas”

_DSC5719v632

One of the perks that comes with being a chef who hunts is that I’m sometimes gifted exotic foods. For example, in the past week I was given beet and mint ice cream, a box of olive oil from someone’s farm in Greece, and a bag full of oryx meat that a Texas guy had …

“Squirrel Brunswick Stew with Acorns”

_DSC7271v632

Young squirrel is good simply quartered and fried. Old squirrel is good stewed. When in doubt, it is safest to braise or stew a squirrel. Sometimes, for flavor and for whimsy, I like to add acorns to this recipe. Native Americans used to eat acorns, usually by grinding them and then boiling them. They are …

“Blue Grouse with Roasted Apples and Pears”

_DSC2496v610

These are the facts that we know: 1. There was an apple tree and a pear tree growing nicely outside the cabin minding their own business. They were producing nice fruit and dropping it on the ground at their leisure. 2. In the morning there were claw marks down the side of the pear tree …

“Chicken in Coconut-Lime Peanut Sauce”

_DSC9574

I get such a craving for Asian food sometimes. I’m not very good at cooking it myself, there’s something about the flavor combinations that aren’t intuitive to me while cooking, but are so delicious when put in front of me at a dinner table. In my recent piece for Tasty Kitchen, I featured one of …

“Buttermilk Fried Rabbit”

I know it is a bit early, but I bet some of you are already wondering what to make for Easter. Are you feeling a little provocative? A tad tongue-in-cheek? Then this is what I recommend. It was part of my Arkansas cooking extravaganza a few weeks ago and I thought it was high time …
