Steak and potatoes are great any time of year, but especially in autumn when you can crowd around the fire pit with delicious hot food and a warm drink. The Autumn Grill Series brings tasty and intriguing menu ideas to your grill that are fitting for this wonderful time of year. Next up is Grilled Bone-In Bison Steaks with Crisped Potatoes, featuring an herbal and tangy chimichurri sauce for added flavor.
Begin by rubbing a dozen bison steaks with olive oil, salt, and pepper, and set aside to rise to room temperature. Bison is leaner than beef and features amazing flavor and texture. The potatoes are boiled, then browned and crisped in olive oil, then seasoned with apple cider vinegar, salt, and pepper. The robust chimichurri sauce packs in the flavor with Italian parsley, nasturtium leaves, mint leaves, garlic, capers, salt, pepper, olive oil, white wine vinegar, and lemon juice. Incredibly fragrant and colorful, the sauce adds gorgeous herbal and citrusy notes to complement the bison. Use these steaks on a crisp, starry night on the deck with family and friends, celebrating this season of thankfulness with the Autumn Grill Series from Summerset.
