Cover skillet and let stand for 3 minutes. Remove bison sirloin steaks from skillet and thinly slice.

We tried this tonight, and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised at how good this tasted. I am weary of trying "other" meats because I don't like meat when it's gamey but this was excellent. I would cut down on the pesto a bit because I felt it was a little strong, but otherwise it was excellent! It paired well with the pasta and the red roasted potatoes I made (since the kids are picky about their pasta.)

As an Allrecipes Allstar, I was asked to make this recipe with bison top sirloin steaks. I cheated slightly in the preparation of the bison steaks. I marinated them in a mixture of 1/2 cup grapeseed oil, 1/4 cup soy sauce, and 2 Tbsp McCormick Montreal steak seasoning. I let the steaks marinate for about 45 minutes (you don't want to marinate any longer). I also cut down the pesto to about 85 grams (1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp) It was MORE than enough pesto. I didn't add the pesto to the top of my steaks, just to the pasta. This recipe was simple, tasty, and healthy! In grilling the steaks I had to keep in mind that due to how lean the bison is that it required 1/3 LESS cooking time, and heat! If you follow the directions as stated just remember the pesto needs to be divided (which it doesn't state).

This was just ok as written. The bison was flavorful but a little on the chewy side for my liking. The consensus at the table was the dish as a whole was lacking in flavor and was boring. Not sure I would make this again.
