Grilled Bison Strip Steak Recipe

My little sister, Karen, (who happens to be the creative designer behind this site and chief photographer) likes to try new, healthy dishes.  She’s always trying things that sound absolutely disgusting to me.  A couple of years ago I’m smoking ribs for my dad’s birthday and she brings over a Bison Steak for me to grill for her.

Huh?  You don’t want ribs – you want a BISON STEAK?  I found that beyond ridiculous.  Nevertheless, I fired up my grill, JUST for Karen, JUST for her silly Bison Steak, JUST so she could try something healthy.  So annoying.

The results stunned me.  Absolutely sweet and delicious and in my opinion, BETTER than beef steaks.  Dangit – I HATE when my little sister is right.  We’ve tried a few more times since then and have come up with a couple of killer recipes you will love.

Put all the ingredients together in a Ziploc bag or container and let your Bison steak marinate for at least 30 minutes, but up to 6 hours.  The longer you marinate, the more the flavors will seep in.  But be careful – this steak is pretty darn good by itself, so you don’t want to overpower with too much flavor.  I marinated mine for about 90 minutes.

Set up your grill for indirect cooking and get your grill blazing hot.  I used Kingsford Competition Briquettes, which produce a MUCH hotter fire than standard briquettes.  With only about 25 coals, all pushed to one side, I was able to get my grill temp to 450+ degrees.

Remove the steak from the marinade, place on a tray and add some salt & pepper to taste.  Grab 2 beers and head outside.

Place the steak directly above the blazing hot coals and sear for about 3-5 minutes per side, depending on thickness.

Now move it as far away from heat as possible, close lid and all vents and let cook until internal temperature is between 130-140 for medium doneness.  You really want to eat Bison no more than medium.  Trust me.  I let mine cook like this for about 5 minutes and it was perfect.
