Spicy Ground Bison Salad

Cooking with ground bison has become a new obsession! It is so flavorful, lean and easy to cook up for an easy lunch or dinner. Bonus, bison is really high in protein and has less saturated fat than regular beef. Definitely plan on incorporating this meat in some future recipes — and this Spicy Ground Bison Salad!

Spicy Ground Bison Salad 

Bowl Ingredients: serves 4

  • 1 lb. lean ground bison
  • 1 package (10 oz.) romaine salad
  • 1 beefsteak tomato, chopped
  • 1/2 cup diced yellow onion
  • 2 sweet potatoes,peeled and cut in 1-inch cubes
  • 1 avocado, pit and skin removed, then diced
  • fresh cilantro, optional for topping

Dressing Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • juice of 2 limes
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic salt
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • fresh cracked pepper, to taste

For the Dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together 2 tbsp. olive oil, juice of 2 limes, 1 tsp. garlic salt, 1/4 tsp. salt and a little cracked black pepper.IMG_7126Directions for roasting sweet potatoes:

Preheat oven for 375 degrees.  Place cubed sweet potatoes on roasting tray. (I placed foil underneath for easy clean up).  Drizzle about 1 tbsp. olive oil, salt and pepper lightly over then toss them around to coat evenly.  Roast for 25 minutes or until tender.

Directions for Stovetop Ground Bison:

Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat, add the ground bison and let it begin to cook.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Optional, add 1 tbsp. flavor God dynamite seasoning.  Continue cooking bison, stirring frequently.  When the meat shows no pink, remove from heat (about 10 minutes total cook time).  Place cooked bison over sink in a colander to drain any excess fat.IMG_7165

To Serve: In a large bowl, combine lettuce, bison, baked sweet potato, tomato, avocado and browned bison.  Top with dressing and toss to evenly coat.  Top with fresh cilantro.   Optional: add a scoop of your favorite salsa, we love Joe. T Garcias!

  1. Alex,
    Which Flavor God Seasoning did you use? You mention , “ dynamite” but don’t see any labeled that!?!

    1. oh man– this recipe is ANCIENT. haha, in fact– its from when my sister was also developing recipes for the blog as well– I bet it was an older flavor of Flavor God that they discontinued.
