Bison Kebabs for Summer BBQ #SundaySupper

I really wanted to participate in this week’s #SundaySupper. Who doesn’t like BBQ food or anything associated with it. YUM!!! I also have wanted to try bison for a long time and thought this was the perfect opportunity. This is our Canada Day long weekend and Bison would be a great way to celebrate.

Hmmm, what to do with it??? First off I had to find it and failed on my first visit to the organic market in our neighborhood. They said to try back the next day to see if they had received a shipment. The next day was successful and I picked up two Bison rib eyes. Bison is an expensive choice for a large piece of meat, especially from the organic market but I didn’t know anywhere else to get it. I decided on Bison Kebabs, as you can stretch a small piece of meat into many skewers. Kebabs are a summertime treat in this household. We all love them!!

Then I thought I would marinate the bison to give it extra flavor. Ken is the grill master in this house, so off he went to grill them to perfection.

The bison was medium rare, spiced right and delicious. I served them over a bed of brown rice that was cooked in chicken broth for extra flavor. I hope you try these this summer. ENJOY!!

    I really enjoy bison and haven’t had it in a while. Brilliant way to stretch an expensive meat into kebabs. Healthy too with the veggies.

    Oh Tara, I never had bison, but the kebabs you share today, are what we call tenderloin brochettes here. They were SUCH a popular restaurant item years ago. I can imagine bison meat is just as good, and they´re very healthy too! Lovely recipe!

    I think I’d have more luck procuring gold dust than bison round these parts, but I love your adventurous kebabs! The marinade sounds heavenly!

    Bison is a favorite of ours too! And what a great idea on the skewers, as they are a bit on the pricey side. Plus, smaller pieces would surely cook faster to keep them more tender. Lovely recipe!

    Your kebabs look beautiful! My husband has been wanting to try out bison on our grill for a while now..maybe we should make it a reality very soon!!!

    I’ve gotten ground buffalo meat before. And I think I’ve seen bison steaks at Whole Foods but you’re right – it is definitely pricier than typical beef. Perfect for special occasion dinners, like Canada Day or July 4th!

  7. says

    Those are some good lookin’ kebabs! I’ve only seen ground bison around here (well, Safeway) … I’ll bet if I go to a real butcher I could get some! The recipe sounds awesome

    Sounds and looks spiced right to me. Those look so good and best to do them medium rare like Ken did. They get a bit too tough if cooked long, as I’m sure you both know.
