The key to cooking Bison properly is LOW & SLOW! Buffalo meat is best cooked rare to medium.

Extra Lean
It is important to remember that bison meat is extra lean, and will cook more quickly than other red meats. Bison can be used in place of beef in any recipe, however lower temperatures should be used. Also, since it is so lean, it should not be cooked beyond medium doneness: 160 degrees F.
