Bison

Once upon a time, millions of bison thundered through the wild of North America. But by the 1880s, they were nearly wiped out due to overhunting. Today, bison have made a comeback - not in the wild -but on ranches throughout the country. Bison meat has been touted as a less-fatty beef alternative - and has a flavor that many say is similar to beef, but perhaps just a little sweeter. On this episode of Iowa Ingredient, join host Charity Nebbe as we visit Hawkeye Buffalo Ranch outside of Fredericksburg. Then Chef Ian Robertson will stop by the studio kitchen to cook with this lean meat.
