How To Cook Bison Sirloin Tip Steak

Updated: Jul 21

Bison Sirloin Tip steaks are typically less tender (but no less tasty) than other cuts on a bison. But don't discount the fact that you can still take a few extra steps to make this cut an amazing meal that you won't soon forget. Learn how to cook a Bison Sirloin Tip Steak to perfection:

Bison Sirloin Tip Steak

Sirloin tips are from a part of the animal that gets a lot of use, therefore it is one of the leanest cuts. Which bison are very lean anyway, but there are ways to prepare this (and other cuts as well) to make an otherwise chewy steak into a fabulous tasting entree!

4 ways to make your steak more tender -

1) Mallet Method – gently pound the mallet across both sides of the meat in order to break up the connective tissue. This will also make the steak a bit thinner. Don’t overdo it!

2) Scoring Method – take a sharp knife and make light diagonal cuts (opposite of the grain) across the meat on both sides.

3) Marinating Method – there are multiple types of marinade you can use for this method. If you choose citrus, keep the marinade time below 8 hours. Allow the meat to marinate anywhere from 2 to 12 hours, again depending on the ingredients in your marinade. l

4) Spice Tenderizing Method –Simply moisten the surface of your choice of meat, shake on tenderizer, and bake, broil or grill to perfection.

The other key to a perfect Bison Sirloin Tip steak is to take your time. We recommend lower heat and a longer cook time to a medium rare or medium.

  • Preparing the Steak:

  • Remove the Bison Sirloin Tip Steak from the refrigerator and let it sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes. This allows for more even cooking.

  • Pat the steak dry with a paper towel to remove any excess moisture.

  • Seasoning:

  • Bison meat has a rich flavor that pairs well with various seasonings. Season the Sirloin Tip Steak generously with salt, freshly ground black pepper, and any additional herbs or spices of your choice. Consider using garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, or a steak seasoning blend to enhance the flavors.

  • Cooking Methods:

  • Grilling: Preheat your grill to low-medium heat. Lightly oil the grates to prevent sticking. Place the seasoned Bison Sirloin Tip Steak on the grill and cook for about 7-8 minutes per side for medium-rare, or adjust the cooking time based on your desired level of doneness. Use a meat thermometer to ensure it reaches an internal temperature of around 135°F (57°C) for medium-rare or 145°F (63°C) for medium.

  • Pan-Searing: Heat a skillet or frying pan over low-medium heat. Add a small amount of oil or clarified butter with a high smoke point. Once the pan is hot, carefully place the seasoned Bison Sirloin Tip Steak in the pan. Sear for about 7-8 minutes per side for medium-rare, or adjust the cooking time based on your preferred level of doneness. Use a meat thermometer to ensure the desired internal temperature is reached.

  • Resting:

  • After cooking, remove the Bison Sirloin Tip Steak from the heat source and let it rest for about 5-10 minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute throughout the meat, resulting in a more flavorful and tender steak.

  • Slicing and Serving:

  • Slice the Bison Sirloin Tip Steak against the grain to maximize tenderness. This means cutting perpendicular to the lines of the muscle fibers. Serve it as the centerpiece of your meal alongside your favorite accompaniments, such as roasted vegetables, garlic mashed potatoes, or a zesty chimichurri sauce.

With its tenderness and robust flavor, Bison Sirloin Tip Steak offers a delightful dining experience. By following these simple steps, you'll be able to enjoy a tender and flavorful Bison Sirloin Tip Steak that will impress your family and friends.

Note: Cooking times may vary based on the thickness of the steak and personal preference. Adjust the cooking time accordingly and ensure the internal temperature reaches a safe level for consumption. Always follow proper food safety guidelines for handling, cooking, and storage.
