Grass-Fed Bison Burgers

Mmmm these were tasty! If you haven’t tried Bison, I highly recommend it! It is really tasty, but so good for you:

Health Benefits

  • Grass-fed Bison provides nutrient dense, low fat, low cholesterol meat with as many Omega-3s per serving as salmon, and three to six times the amount of omega-3s as grain fed animals.
  • It contains the highest-know levels of the fat-blocker and anti-carcinogen, CLA (conjugated linolaic acid). Research on CLA is showing evidence that CLA has the potential to reduce the risk of cancer, obesity, diabetes, and a number of immune disorders.
  • It also has high concentrations of selenium, a natural trace element that acts as a mood elevator. The original “happy meal”. In research conducted by Dr. Martin Marchello at the Carrington Research Extension Center, grass fed Bison was determined to contain as much as four times more selenium than grain fed Bison.
  • Bison fits the dietary recommendations of the American Heart and American Diabetes associations.
  • Grass-fed Bison contains four times the amount of vitamin E found in grain fed beef. It is also a rich source of the vitamin beta-carotene, a vital antioxidant which reduces the risk of cancer by preventing cell degeneration.

Has anyone had Bison? What are your thoughts? I seriously LOVE it. It is lean and healthy, yet so delicious. It is more expensive, but if you have the chance, go and pick some up!

  • i keep hearing so much good stuff about bison but with my budget it’s sadly not an option :(


  • i see bison burgers on menus at restaurants now all the time!!! i first heard about it in Vermont when i was in college. my asst bball coach was obsessed w/ bison burgers and she kept telling us how lean they are. and seriously can i have some of your fries?!?!


  • You take such great food photos. What kind of camera do you use? I don’t think I’ve ever had bison before, but I’ll have to try it sometime.


  • I have not had bison. It looks great, but your bun and fries look even better. What kind of bread is that?


  • I LOVE bison burgers, and this one looks awesome! I had bison a couple winters ago when visiting a friend in Colorado. Her family had been given a bison roast, and so they decided to try it out while we were there (she had never made bison before). It was quite possibly one of the best meals I have EVER had. So tender and juicy. I love it!



  • Hey Matt, can you please post the recipe for your fries? I know you’ve posted it before but that was a long time ago… they look so mouth-watering and I really want to make them!!! :) Thanks! And btw – I love bison too!


  • Bison is great and so good for you! If you’ve ever been to a Wegan’s, you can buy the buffalo sirloin steaks as well! But as commented, its pretty pricey! I always get a bison burger when I go to Fuddruckers though!
