Akhtar Nawab’s Bison Burger with Balsamic Onions

Bison is super lean and high in protein compared to other meats. It is also lower in calories and cholesterol than beef and has a lot of flavor in it. It’s a little gamey but not overpowering. It gives you a meaty burger that sears and caramelizes well without that much fat.

TECHNIQUE TIP: Because bison is so lean, it does cook quickly and can be tough, which is why I don’t cook it like I would a steak.

SWAP OPTION: Swap bison for beef, use store bought mayo and/or Thousand Island dressing.
