Rub your favorite 6-ounce cut of bison steak with a combination of a little garlic salt, cooking oil and lemon pepper. Grill steaks 4-6 inches above medium hot coals (325 degrees) for the following times, depending on thickness:
•1 inch thick: Rare 6-8 minutes; Medium 8-10 minutes
•1-1/2 inches thick: Rare 8-10 minutes; Medium 10-12 minutes
•2 inches thick: Rare 10-12 minutes; Medium 14-18 minutes
Steaks recommended for grilling/barbecuing include rib eye, t-bone and New York Strip. Lesser quality bison steaks are not recommended for grilling unless they have been marinated.
Using a fork to turn steaks punctures the meat, so use tongs for turning and keep those wonderful juices in the steak.
Bison steaks taste best when grilled to rare or medium (still pink in the center). Cooking time is important to avoid overcooking. Nutrition information per 6-ounce filet include: 234 calories, 3.2 grams fat (12 percent of calories from fat), 105 mg cholesterol and 91.8 mg sodium..
