Notes

Bison meat is more lean and more dense than beef, so it takes less time and less heat to prepare. It should be cooked to reach an internal temperature between 145°F (rare) – 160°F (well done). Because it is so lean, bison meat will cook 1/3 times faster than beef. It’s a great substitute for all of your favorite beef recipes!
