Instructions Checklist
  • Heat 2 tablespoons canola oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat; brown the bison in oil, 2 to 3 minutes per side; remove bison and set aside. Pour 1 tablespoon canola oil into the Dutch oven; cook and stir the onion and celery in the oil until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic; cook and stir another 2 to 3 minutes. Sprinkle the flour over the mixture and stir to coat. Stir in the broth, water, wine, salt, pepper, cloves, tomato sauce, parsley, and thyme to the mixture; bring to a boil. Return the bison to the mixture and stir through. Reduce heat; cover and simmer until meat is fork tender, about 1 hour.

Excellent comfort food for a cold winter's night. I changed it to 3 tablespoons flour and added carrots during the last 40 minutes. I would back off on the salt next time it really doesn't need it. Lots of flavor. The family loved it. Read More

Very good! Had a lot of flavor. I would up the garlic by one clove next time. But my husband and I like garlic. I added the 3tbls of flour like others had suggested and I probably would have done one more because I like thick stew. Read More
