Organic Grass-Fed Bison Lasagna

If you are totally against eating game meat, then you just won't try it.

However, how could you possible become a better cook if you're unwilling to expand your horizons?!   The limit and boundaries of your cuisine, which you impose on yourself?!  Think about it.

Organic Grass-Fed Bison Lasagna




Organic Grass-Fed Bison or American Buffalo is a fantastic beef substitute.  The meat is coarser in texture and has a deep red color.  Bison is actually healthier than beef, with more protein, less cholesterol, and half the calories.  With that said, it still packs a rich beefy flavor.


Bison can be purchased in most of the cuts you're familiar with NY steak, tenderloin, rib-eye, flat iron steak, London broil, shoulder, short ribs, spare ribs, etc...

No recipe today.  Just try and mix in some bison the next time you make a meat lasagna.

  1. Great idea to use the bison in lasagna. It is a bit more expensive than say ground beef but so worth it.

  2. First of all, love your new header! Christy did a great job! Second, I'm completely with you on expanding your palate, and game meats is a fun way to start. I visited a bison farm here once (yes, there's a bison farm in CT), and actually got to meet the bison - right before enjoying some bison burgers, mmm ;) I've never thought about bison in lasagna, though. With bison so close, I have no excuse NOT to use it!

    Have a great week, Laz!

  5. Preaching to the choir, Lazaro. Love the grass-fed, humanely raised rumanant... bison or beef. It is actually good for you and you know the beastie had a nice life on the range before the last roundup! That lasagna looks soooogood!

    I agree about the header... looks topnotch and the message is perfect!

  8. Well, I'm a vegetarian, so no game meat for me. BUT I think that is a great idea for meat-eaters to explore alternative meat sources, especially for the purpose of palette expansion.

  9. I'm a big fan of bison - for both taste and health reasons. You're right that it's a great substitution in lasagna - or all manner of other dishes that call for ground meat. And yes, the new header is a winner!

  10. love Bison. I get mine at Costco so it's a bit cheaper. I also cut waaaay back on meat so I could afford the good stuff like Bison, Elk and Organic, free range etc.
    nice header btw. ;)

  11. This summer I have become the biggest fan of bison, and prefer it beef in many instances. A rare bison burger with blue cheese is a thing of great beauty. Mmm. We have a local bison farm here so it's easy to get and sustainable! Love your new header, btw.

  12. I've never tried bison before, but it sounds like a nice change. Always up for trying something new. The lasagna looks delicious!

  13. If the smell and taste isn't too strong, I will gladly take it. I know I know but I intake too much meat these days. It's time to get detoxed. hahaha. However, the lasagna looks so fab that the intake-too-much meat feeling is gone in no time!

  14. I actually love buffalo burgers :) I've also had buffalo hash for breakfast at a restaurant, but I've never cooked with it myself. Could be a fun meat experiment, hehe.

  17. Love bison! They carry it at Wegmans and I occasionally pick it up for a nice little change from beef. That looks like a pretty fantastic lasagna!

  18. Whoa, look how creamy that is! Very curious what cheeses you've used. Bison is a great substitute. We have a corned bison recipe on our blog that turned out deliciously good!

  19. That is a beautiful looking lasagna! My boys make bison burgers and they are big lasagna lovers so I am sure they will love this. And they do carry bison at most of our local haunts :)
    I hope you have a fantastic weekend!

  20. I don't actually eat red meat, but I think if I decide to change that, I would start with bison. I've also read about how much less impact bison have on the environment compared to cattle.

  21. Totally on board with game. Was brought up eating it. I've had bison and this is such a creative way to use it. Leave it to Lazaro!

  22. I don't think I've ever tried bison. If presented to me like this, I'd definitely have no problems giving it a try even though I'm not much of a meat person. The most creative lasagna I've seen, that's for sure. Props to you, Laz!
