    Bison actually. Does anyone have a recipe? My new neighbor (former Marine who lost his arm in Iraq) has offered to bring me some meat from a buff he killed in Texas, but I have no idea what to do with it. I have eaten bison once before, but it was in a burger. I noticed the meat was slighty sweeter and more metalic tasting than beef, but still quite tolerable. Will venison steak recipes be as good with bison as with venison? Don't know if he's bringing me burger or steak, but I won't turn either down. Thanks in advance.

    Treat is exactly as if it were Beef, whatever the cut (although the cuts will probably be larger than you are used to seeing). It is probably grass fed and therefore lean, but buff is leaner than beef anyway. A splash of Olive oil or Italian dressing on a steak serves well.
    I don't know what this "metallic" taste is you refer to. Buff is easy to enjoy.

    I mean that it was necessarily a bad metalic taste, but I have noticed a slight twang to the buff steak and burger I have had before. So, treat like beef. Makes sense.

    +1 treat/ prepare it as you would beef.. Remember its very lean compared to pen feed beef. So olive oil,canola,lard etc can be added to marinades, skillet ,rubs etc.

    Lean meat doesn't tolerate overcooking. It seems to go from succulent to dry and tough as leather in a moment, so I always try for a medium rare. medium for the family members that insist on heat-tortured meat.
    typical beef is a little more forgiving, IMHO.

    Use olive oil, cook on lower heat . . . cooks quicker than beef. If steaks are tough, marinade overnight in your fav seasoning, worchestershire sauce & red wine vinegar . . . tenders them right up. Excellent eating! "Metallic" taste sounds like something picked-up during processing maybe.

    Buffalo burgers are sold at several restaurants in this part of the country, one about 2 blocks from our house. I like em. Never experienced the " metallic " taste.

    Could be that the buff I ate before wasn't handled properly. I would assume that metallic taste was picked up after the buff was butchered since no one else has had this experience.
