Directions

  1. Cut bison skirt steak across the grain into 1-inch wide strips. Place bison strips in a resealable plastic bag set in a shallow bowl.
  2. For marinade, combine oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, the 3 cloves garlic, the 1 teaspoon salt, the oregano, and the 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl. Pour marinade over bison strips. Seal bag; turn to coat bison strips. Marinate in the refrigerator for 2 to 4 hours, turning bag occasionally.
  3. Drain bison strips; discard marinade. Thread bison strips accordion-style onto skewers, trimming as necessary.
  4. For a charcoal or gas grill, place bison skewers on the rack of a covered grill directly over medium heat. Grill for 4 to 6 minutes, turning once halfway through grilling. (Or place skewers on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil for 3 to 4 inches from the heat for 5 to 7 minutes, turning once.) Serve with Yogurt-Cucumber Sauce.
  5. Yogurt-Cucumber Sauce: Combine yogurt, cucumber, green onion, the 2 cloves minced garlic, the 1/2 teaspoon salt, and the 1/8 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl. Cover and chill until ready to serve.

I've never made or eaten bison before, so this was a first for us. It was DELICIOUS...Tender, juicy and so flavorful! I marinated the meat overnight. The yogurt-cucumber sauce was sooooo good, and complimented the bison wonderfully. I will be keeping my eye out for bison in the markets (haven't seen it so far), and I can't wait to make these again and try some other recipes~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

It was my first time eating Bison and it was really good, I didn't tell the kids what it was until they finished.... they loved it! I loved the marinade, it was a perfect combination of flavors... the yogurt sauce was a perfect dip! I followed the recipe exactly as stated.
