As an Allstar Ambassador, it was my pleasure to work with the Bison Council. This was a recipe I choose to make and rate. As I thought it was out of my comfort zone with adding cranberries to a savory dish...Little did I realize, what a treat it was. The pairing of bison with the cranberries was fantastic. During the cooking process, the berries broke down and melded with the broth, meat and herbs and it made an excellent addition to my family's dinner. One bowl was left after everyone sat down to eat and really raved that it was quite delicious. I've used ground bison before and this was a 1st using it in tender cuts of roast. I will so be buying it as a great dinner treat for my family. This recipe was exceptionally wonderful, meat was tender, the broth and vegetables were over the top awesome! The recipe as a whole was just outstanding. If I had enough for the family to have leftovers for another dinner, they would be gone right now ;-) thank you for allowing me to be apart of making this meal. It's a winner!
I would have liked to give this recipe 4.5 stars if that was an option. It was very good, my husband and I really liked it and would make it again. We followed the recipe exactly. The bison was delectable and extremely tender. The cranberries added a unique flavor and depth but you have to be sure to cook it for the prescribed time, otherwise the cranberries taste like barf (we tried them half way through). Overall a very satisfying, interesting and healthy meal. Can't wait to have the leftovers tomorrow.
Made this tonight and it was a big hit! I didn't have any marjoram, so I used sage. Talk about wonderful! Thanks for the great recipe!
This was a great twist on a classic stew. I live in the north east, so I did substitute bison with beef. Because I work graveyard shifts, I did this in a slow cooker while I slept during the day. It was so nice to wake up to the delicious smell of this stew! When I visit my family out west I'll be sure to try this again more true to the recipe.
Eww. Really gamey. Maybe my grocery store didn't have good bison but I sure paid top dollar for it. If you don't like game, don't try this.
