This weeks post will be short and sweet.
We went to True Food Kitchen (which I'll blog about at Eating the Orange on Thursday)
and as soon as I saw bison on the menu I knew I had to try it.
So, yeah, it tastes like beef.
I thought the burger was tasty and the umami sauce on it was phenomenal but that's a different subject.
Bison has been described as sweeter or richer than beef but a burger is probably not the best way to really compare. I did a quick internet search and found this info on the nutritional difference:
Ground bison and beef are high in protein (about 22g per serving) and in many vitamins (e.g. niacin, vitamins B-6, B-12 and A, iron, selenium, zinc and phosphorous). Both are also high in cholesterol. Bison burgers are far lower in fat than all but very lean ground beef burgers. Unlike nonorganic beef, bison are not exposed to antibiotics or growth hormones.
Peanut had a bite and he like it too.
He was more interested in eating our veggies and the "pish" from our fish tacos.
Have you ever tried bison?
What did you eat this week?
