Have you ever had
In making the suggested recipe I cheated. Did I just say that? Yes I did. I didn't want so much pesto in my pasta so I reduced the amount to 1/4 cup plus 2 Tablespoons of pesto. It was MORE than enough. Once my pasta was cooked, I allowed it to cool slightly and then mixed in my pesto. I placed the bowl in the fridge to chill, while I did some research on bison.
In cooking with Bison you have to be aware of one extremely important factor.
It is a lean meat! For every 100 grams of Bison there is 1.35 grams of fat (contrast that with Beef which has 11.1 grams of fat per 100 grams)
What does this mean for the
In knowing that these steaks cook faster, and use less heat I made sure to keep an eye on them. I'm typically a well done kinda gal, but for the bison I made an exception and cooked them to medium rare, meaning the internal temperature was about 110°-115°. Don't the steaks look mouthwatering!
After letting my steaks rest for the nominal time, I then proceeded to slice them. One slightly important note to make. This recipe calls for fresh mozzarella, so please don't use the brick stuff, use the fresh stuff. Back to the center of attraction: Voila! Bison Caprese Farfalle salad - it's the same recipe, just renamed *grins* doesn't it look yum! The bison council twitter group thought so!!!
