Savory and juicy, these bison burgers put a satisfying new spin on classic favorite. They're great for Grilling and easy to prepare!
When compared to beef, buffalo is naturally lower in fat and higher in iron. The flavor of buffalo is also richer and somehow sweeter than beef. Another healthy bonus is that bison are not treated with antibiotics or growth hormones and tend to be mainly grass fed (although some are grain finished), giving the meat a bit more omega-3 fatty acids.
Combine ingredients and form into patties. Barbecue on grill with medium heat, 5 minutes on one side, flip over and barbecue 5 minutes on other side. Serve hot on toasted bun with desired condiments.
For best juiciness and flavor ground bison should be 80 to 90% lean (10 to 20% fat content). Less than 10% fat results in a less juicy, drier tasting burger. Bison burgers with more than 20% fat tend to be greasy tasting. Most ground bison used in testing was close to 90% lean.
Bison burgers are best grilled on the barbecue. My first choice is gas, but charcoal or electric will work equally as well.
