Here's what I cooked yesterday, minus the plantains. I made a green salsa (tomatillo) to go with it, but also did the run-of-the-mill red. We sliced the steak thin and had it with corn tortillas, black beans, a nice crumbly farmers cheese, guacamole and the salsas. Oh, and chips, of course.

Didn't get around to making beer margaritas, but the beer was good on it's own.

Thank you for the nice thread, Hegel. Great idea! I'll start with one of my favorite quotes:

"Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together."

This looks delicious. However, I wonder if the recipe would work with chicken?

Love that quote! It sounds like her. LOL

You're more than welcome, Barbi. I hope to make it a fun thread.

I'm sure it would! I was unable to find Mexican oregano so didn't use any at all. I'll have to go to the Mexican grocery to find that, I think. It was good without it.

If you've never tried it, Bison is excellent too cook with. It's very lean and therefor better for you than beef. The best recipes that I know of can be found at " www.bisonbasics.com/recipes.html" ;.

Those recipes look wonderful, especially that chili!
I remember years ago when "beefalo" was available in the supermarkets. They ground beef with buffalo, apparently to make it more palatable. I guess it was something the grocers tried and gave up on.
I'm wondering if bison is more digestible than beef. I was told on another forum that elk and venison are.

Too late, I guess, but, I bought some Mexican oregano in the 70's. I should have saved it!

Thanks, Richard. I have to be honest and say I'm not terribly fond of the taste of bison but it is a lot leaner. When I fix something like this steak I'd rather have beef, but in chili or something like that I wouldn't mind using bison.

No kidding. It had probably mellowed really well with age!

I prefer bison over beef because it (too me at least) sits better on my stomach. Cost is a big factor in why grocers gave up on it. Pure Bison is fairly expensive also. But when you take into account that you use half the amount that you would normaly use in beef, I feel the cost is worth it. I'll get the web site that we get ours from and post it.

I've been told by friends that they also do not care for Bison. They all say it has a much stronger taste than beef. I guess I'm just used too it. The Chilli is great. Bison needs the right seasoning when cooked. Using the same seasoning on beef steaks and Bison just doesn't work.

LOL!! The funniest is the one with the three girls. I DID have to look twice to figure out why she had on no pants. Second, the cyclists.

Thank you. I've grown accustomed to my inability to digest any beef, but I'm sick of chicken, fish, and pork. Veggie burgers are good, but I can't expect others I'm eating with to pretend to enjoy them. I'm willing to give bison a try.

I suppose if I ate it more I'd get used to it. Couldn't hurt to try! That's good info on the seasoning, thanks. I had no idea.

I think it's the baby's hat. More specifically, the pattern/color.
