Bison, Cabbage and Tomato One Skillet Meal

 Bison is one of my favorite comfort foods.  It's touted as a nutrient dense alternative to beef, with lower fat and cholesterol levels.  Most bison are raised on open grassland, which is much healthier for them (and you), than cattle raised in feedlots.   If you can't find it at your local natural food store, check for a local farmer through

Recipe adapted from The Nutrient Dense Eating Plan.


1 lb ground bison
5 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 small head green cabbage, thinly sliced
5 to 6 medium tomatoes, chopped
1 to 1 1/2 tsp sea salt
1 Tbsp oregano
Ground black pepper to taste


Heat oil in large heavy skillet over medium high heat and add minced garlic.  Let sizzle for 30 seconds, until aromatic.  Add ground buffalo and cook until almost all of the meat is brown.  Add salt and oregano and mix well.  Add tomatoes and cook for a minute or so, until some of the juices are released.  Mix in cabbage and cook for a couple of minutes, until wilted.  Add pepper, if desired, and adjust seasonings.  Serve grain free, or over brown rice, quinoa, or millet.  Serves 3.  Source:
