  • For marinade, combine oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, the 3 cloves garlic, the 1 teaspoon salt, the oregano, and the 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl. Pour marinade over bison strips. Seal bag; turn to coat bison strips. Marinate in the refrigerator for 2 to 4 hours, turning bag occasionally.

  • Drain bison strips; discard marinade. Thread bison strips accordion-style onto skewers, trimming as necessary.

  • For a charcoal or gas grill, place bison skewers on the rack of a covered grill directly over medium heat. Grill for 4 to 6 minutes, turning once halfway through grilling. (Or place skewers on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil for 3 to 4 inches from the heat for 5 to 7 minutes, turning once.) Serve with Yogurt-Cucumber Sauce.

  • Yogurt-Cucumber Sauce: Combine yogurt, cucumber, green onion, the 2 cloves minced garlic, the 1/2 teaspoon salt, and the 1/8 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl. Cover and chill until ready to serve.

Tips

* If using wooden skewers, soak in water for at least 30 minutes; drain before using.

I've never made or eaten bison before so this was a first for us. It was DELICIOUS...Tender juicy and so flavorful! I marinated the meat overnight. The yogurt-cucumber sauce was sooooo good and complimented the bison wonderfully. I will be keeping my eye out for bison in the markets (haven't seen it so far) and I can't wait to make these again and try some other recipes YUM! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

Quite tasty. Don't hesitate to marinate overnight. I had to use beef skirt steak but it was delicious. The yogurt sauce is yummy. Will make again. Read More
