  • salt

Directions:

Rinse and pat dry bison.  Set aside.  In a small bowl, mix together the oil, onion, bell peppers, *garlic, chile, oregano, basil, cumin, chile powder, cilantro, tequila, and salt.  Score the steak a few times across the grain.  Put the steaks in a 9X13 glass pan and pour liquid over the top.  Place in refrigerator overnight. Tastes best if marinate for 24 hours. Slice Eggplant and salt the day before too.  Remove from pan and grill on high heat until slightly pink in the middle.  Rinse eggplant and grill with steaks.  You may also grill, corn, okra, poblano peppers, mushrooms or carrots with your meat.  Serve with Almond Flour Tortillas.

*Minced garlic.  Finely chop garlic cloves, salt and press down with side of knife to “bleed” the garlic.  This enhances the flavor of the garlic.
