Directions

  1. Reserve 1/4 cup of the flour. Place the remaining flour in a resealable plastic bag. Add bison chuck roast cubes, a few at a time, shaking to coat. Heat oil over medium-high in a 5- to 6- quart Dutch oven or pot. Brown bison cubes in batches on all sides in hot oil. Drain off fat. Stir in 3 cups of the broth, the cranberry juice, cranberries, onion, thyme, marjoram, sugar, salt, and pepper. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 1 hour.
  2. Stir in green beans, carrots, and celery. Simmer, covered, for 1 more hour or until bison and vegetables are tender. Stir the remaining 1/2 cup broth and the reserved 1/4 cup flour in a small bowl until smooth; stir into stew. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly; cook and stir 1 more minute.

As an Allstar Ambassador, it was my pleasure to work with the Bison Council. This was a recipe I choose to make and rate. As I thought it was out of my comfort zone with adding cranberries to a savory dish...Little did I realize, what a treat it was. The pairing of bison with the cranberries was fantastic. During the cooking process, the berries broke down and melded with the broth, meat and herbs and it made an excellent addition to my family's dinner. One bowl was left after everyone sat down to eat and really raved that it was quite delicious. I've used ground bison before and this was a 1st using it in tender cuts of roast. I will so be buying it as a great dinner treat for my family. This recipe was exceptionally wonderful, meat was tender, the broth and vegetables were over the top awesome! The recipe as a whole was just outstanding. If I had enough for the family to have leftovers for another dinner, they would be gone right now ;-) thank you for allowing me to be apart of making this meal. It's a winner!

I would have liked to give this recipe 4.5 stars if that was an option. It was very good, my husband and I really liked it and would make it again. We followed the recipe exactly. The bison was delectable and extremely tender. The cranberries added a unique flavor and depth but you have to be sure to cook it for the prescribed time, otherwise the cranberries taste like barf (we tried them half way through). Overall a very satisfying, interesting and healthy meal. Can't wait to have the leftovers tomorrow.

Made this tonight and it was a big hit! I didn't have any marjoram, so I used sage. Talk about wonderful! Thanks for the great recipe!
