Bison Strip Steak

last night brandon and i made bison strip steak and it was absolutely delicious! here is the recipe
Bison Strip Steak, Savory Mashed Potatoes, Roasted Asparagus, and Field Green Salad
bison strip steak about 1 1/2 inch thick (we split one steak)
1 1/2 tablespoons montreal steak seasoning (McCormick)
1 tablespoon evoo
3 red potatoes
1/2 teaspoon garlic pepper seasoning
2 tablespoons butter (i used smart choice light)
1-1/2 cups chicken broth
fresh cracked black pepper
2 fresh garlic cloves
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 bushel fresh asparagus
1 cup feild greens
1/2 tomato
salad topping of your choice
preheat oven to 425 degrees
pull out bison steak and cover both sides with montreal seasoning (no oil) and let sit at room temperature while preparing sides.
peel off half of potatoes' skin leaving some on and cut into 1 inch peices.
put in small saucepan and pour in chicken broth to come just up to the top of the potatoes almost covering them. add in a pinch of salt and boil.
mince 2 cloves garlic to almost a garlic paste. wash asparagus and put in large bowl with 1 tablespoon evoo and garlic paste. toss together and lay out in a single row on a cookie sheet. grind pepper on top of asparagus and set cookie sheet off to the side.
heat a cast iron skillet to the higher end of medium-high - add 1 tablespoon evoo to skillet. sear bison 2 minutes on one side, flip and cook 1 minute on other side - top with 1/2 tablespoon butter and transfer the pan into the oven. bake at 425 for 8 minutes for medium-rare. 12-13 for medium and 18-22 for well. pull out and place bison on a plate or cutting board and let rest.
while bison is in the oven, make the mashed potatoes.
do not drain - mash with fork until all broth is absorbed and all pieces are mashed. add in 1 tablespoon butter, garlic pepper, a little black pepper and salt to taste. whip with fork. set back on stove on low heat.
once bison is out of the oven -turn oven to high broil and wait 5 minutes.
put pan of asparagus in the oven for 3-5 minutes, just until the asparagus sizzles and turns a bright green color.
to make salad, i used field greens, tomatoes, 1 leaf of basil chopped, and a low calorie ginger saoy dressing (brandon loaded on the feta and zesty italian)
plate all components and serve.

I just saw a bison steak recipe in this month's Cooking Light. It looked pretty good! I could walk to my Whole Foods, but it's a little on the pricey side. Do you buy all of your groceries at Whole Foods? Or just the fruit, veg, and meat? I like when the Farmer's Market is open. It's nice to know your farmer!

I will have to try asparagus your way next time. We had it tonight but I just steamed it. I don't care for it that much but Shane likes it. I am willing to try anything to make it taste better.
