“Using lean bison and an aromatic assortment of spices this recipe was offered by the National Bison Association of Denver, CO as a marketing tool in 1998. I picked up the recipe card at a local organic meat co-op. It is a family favorite now. Great for a snowy day. Freezes well for ski or snowmobile trips.”
