Bison Ribeye Steak with Mint & Pea Salad

If you’ve yet to try Bison here’s your chance! Bison is naturally leaner than beef, milder on the palette with a slightly sweeter flavour. Paired with fresh mint and pea salad this dish is chocked full of flavour and will have you savoring every bite. Recipe courtesy of Chef Matt Basile of Fidel Gastro's.
