Braised Bison Pot Roast Stew

By Bridger Valley Buffalo @1:09 pm


  • 2 lbs. boneless buffalo chuck roast (cut into 1-inch cubes)
  • 1 lb. waxy potatoes (low-starch, such as Yukon golds, red-skinned potatoes, or white round potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks)
  • 2 large carrots (peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces)
  • 2 large celery ribs (chopped into 1-inch pieces)
  • 1 medium onion (peeled roughly chopped)
  • 3 cloves garlic (peeled and smashed)
  • 2 tbsp. tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 3 cups beef stock (or broth)
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas (thawed)
  • 3 tbsp. flour
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
  • Kosher salt (to taste)
  • Freshly ground black pepper (to taste)


Fire that oven up to 300° F!

Pat any excess moisture from the meat with clean paper towels. This will help achieve a nice dark brown sear on it.

Season the meat generously with Kosher salt.

In a heavy, cast-iron dutch oven or brazier, heat the oil over medium-high heat. When the oil is really hot, add the buffalo and brown it thoroughly on all sides. Don’t overcrowd the pan. Work in batches if necessary. When a rich brown crust has developed on all sides of the buffalo, remove it from the pan and set it aside.

Lower the heat to medium, add the onions to the pot and sauté for 5 minutes or so, or until they turn slightly soft and translucent. Add the garlic and cook for another minute.

Reduce the heat to medium-low and stir in the flour to form a thin paste. Cook for a couple of minutes, stirring throughout.

Now slowly pour in the stock, gently scraping the bottom of the pan to deglaze.

Return the browned buffalo to the pot along with the tomato paste and Worcestershire sauce. Heat on the stovetop until the liquid comes to a boil, then add the bay leaves and dried herbs, cover with a tight-fitting lid and transfer the whole thing to the oven. Let the meat braise in the oven for one hour.

Add the potatoes, carrots, and celery, recover the pot and return it to the oven for another 30 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.

Transfer the pot to the stovetop. Remove the lid and simmer for another 15 minutes or until the stew is thickened.

Stir in the peas, adjust seasoning with Kosher salt and black pepper, and fill your belly right away, garnished with the chopped parsley!

Hot Steak a Flavorful Rosemary Marinated Steak

By Bridger Valley Buffalo @11:05 am

Rosemary Marinated Steak


Looking to do something different with your steak? We have just the thing! Rosemary marinated steak is deliciously juicy and flavorful.

What you will need:

  • 1 Buffalo steak of your choice
  • 1 tbsp. dried rosemary
  • 1/2 cup red wine (dry red wine, or a wine of your choice)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

You will marinate the steak in sauce for about 2 hours and leave the meat out so all can come to room temperature.

When the steak is finished marinating cook on a grill, hot coals, or pellets whichever you prefer.

To get the perfect “Hot Steak” here are some guidelines you can follow:

  • Preheat grill 5 minutes before you grill the steak.
  • Use long handled tongs to turn steaks on the grill. (A fork will cause all the flavorful juices to escape.)
  • Cooking time is important as you don’t want to overcook your steaks.
    • 1″ thick             Rare: 6-8 minutes                  Medium: 10-12 minutes
    • 1 1/2″ thick       Rare: 10-12 minutes               Medium: 14-18 minutes
    • 2″ thick             Rare: 14-20 minutes              Medium: 20-25 Minutes
