Did you know bison is full of several essential nutrients? These nutrients include iron, zinc, protein, B vitamins, and selenium. Bison has historically been the second most popular type of red meat, after beef. It is common to see bison on restaurant menus, but it is not readily available for purchase at traditional grocery stores. Bison is considerably leaner than other types of red meat and is therefore easier to overcook. If not cooked properly, the meat can become tough, dry, and hard to chew.
