Willie G’s Seared Bison Ribeye

Serves 4 for a light lunch or 2 for dinner

Carrot Jus

1 cup fresh carrot juice, store-bought

1/4 cup soy sauce, low sodium

In a small saucepot, combine the carrot juice and soy sauce.  Bring to a simmer over medium heat, allowing the water to boil away and the liquid volume in the pot to reduce.  Reduce until the volume of the sauce is about half.  The sauce will thicken slightly as it reduces.  Set the sauce aside.  It will also thicken slightly as it cools.

Coriander-Black Peppercorn Crusted Bison Ribeye

3 tablespoons coriander seed

3 tablespoons whole black peppercorns

1/2 tablespoon sea salt

2 bison ribeyes (8 to 12-ounce steaks)

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Combine the coriander seed and peppercorns in a coffee grinder and pulse just until they are broken up consistently, but don’t grind to a fine powder.

Sprinkle and press the seasoning onto the steaks.  Sprinkle lightly with salt.

Sear on a hot griddle or cook on an outdoor char-grill with vegetable oil.

Bison is very lean so cooking to a temperature of medium or less is recommended otherwise it may be fairly dry and tough.  Beef ribeye may certainly be substituted in this preparation.  Once the steak is cooked to your specifications, set it aside for 2-3 minutes to rest.  Slice the steak against the grain with a sharp knife to serve.

Farmers’ Market Vegetable Salad

1 cup fresh green beans, steamed for 4 minutes

1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

1 cup boiled Colorado red potatoes, cut into quarters

1/3 cup pickled baby corn, halved

1 cup fresh baby arugula or baby spinach

1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

2 tablespoons avocado oil

Pinch sea salt

Pinch freshly ground black pepper

Combine the green beans, cherry tomatoes, red potatoes, baby corn and arugula or spinach in a large salad mixing bowl.

In a small bowl, stir together the fresh lime juice and avocado oil.  Pour this simple vinaigrette over the vegetables.  Sprinkle with salt and black pepper.  Toss well.  Adjust seasonings to taste.

Divide the salad evenly on dinner plates.  Lean slices of crusted bison ribeye against the salad and drizzle the steak with the carrot jus.  Enjoy!!!
