The last recipe I posted using Bison was my Bison Taco Bowl (holy yum!) and if you are new to Bison or want to know about some of it’s benefits or where to buy it then you might want to click over and give this post a quick read.
Slaw Topped Bison Sliders
Yield: 4 servings
Prep Time:20 minutes
Cook Time:10 minutes
Total Time:30 minutes
- 1 lb ground bison
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 1 tsp fresh ground pepper
- 2 tsp fish sauce
- 8 mini whole-wheat pitas (I buy the at Trader Joe’s)
- 1 tomato, thinly sliced
- 1 small red onion, thinly sliced into rounds
- 7oz (1/2 a bag) of pre-shredded slaw mix
- 1 fat clove of garlic, crushed
- 1 tbsp mayo
- 3 tbsp plain non-fat Greek yogurt
- 1 tsp honey
- ½ tsp white wine vinegar
- Salt and pepper to taste
In a medium bowl combine garlic, mayo, yogurt, honey, vinegar, salt and pepper. Toss everything together and pop in the fridge while you work on your burgers.
Grab another big bowl and combine the ground bison with the garlic, salt, pepper and fish sauce. Once you have all the ingredients well incorporated, score the meat with your fingertips to create 8 sections (it will look like a pizza pie). Grab one section and free form into a burger patty. Do the same with the rest of the meat until you have 8 mini sliders formed (they will weigh 2oz each).
Pre-heat your grill over a medium high heat and let it get good and hot before you begin grilling. I always brush my grates with oil before cooking anything to ensure that nothing sticks.
Place burgers onto the grill for 3-4 minutes per side for a medium burger (feel free to adjust the cooking time depending on how well or rare you like your burger).
Layer tomato and onion on the bottom half of the pita and top with a dollop of coleslaw. Enjoy!
Makes 4 servings (8 mini burgers).
