How to cook the perfect bison burger. 

Sayersbrook ground all natural bison meat is flavorful in itself. No need to add too much seasoning. Just some salt and pepper will do. 

It's simple to make a delicious, tender and juicy buffalo burger. 

Just follow these steps

  1. Oil your hands first just slightly so the meat doesn’t stick to them.
  2. Form each portion sized patty quickly with your oiled hands, try to keep each patty the same size so they cook at the same rate. 1/2" patties will take approximately 4 minutes to cook on each side- totalling 8 minutes. 
  3. Make them slightly larger than the bun you will put them on.
  4. Press your thumb into the centre of each patty to make an indent. This will keep them from bulging up in the middle while grilling.
  5. Grill the meat over a medium heat so the burgers get a chance to cook on the inside without getting charred on the outside. Bison is very lean, so don't cook to medium well. It will be too dry. 
  6. Cook over hot coals or gas grill for approximately 8 minutes - turning once 
  7. Flip the burger over when it easily separated from the grill
  8. Try to restrain from squishing it down on the grill with your spatula, this will let the juices out and cause a flare up on the BBQ
  9. If desired - brush with BBQ sauce approximately 1 minute before the end of cooking time. 
  10. When ready, put them on a new plate with a clean spatula. 
  11. Keep the cooking plates from contaminating the cooked meat.
