Carrot-Stuffed Bison Tenderloin

Healthy Recipe from the Pritikin Cooking School

Bison is often described as the "healthier red meat" because many cuts are lower in saturated fat than beef. Just make sure you're selecting cuts that, by weight, are at least 95% lean. Otherwise, you're likely to end up with bison that's as fatty as beef.

Carrot Stuffed Bison Tenderloin Recipe

Craving meat but don’t want to clog up your arteries with a lot of saturated fat and cholesterol? Try game meat like bison. But don’t think that all bison is heart healthy. Some cuts are very high in saturated fat. Seek out cuts that, by weight, are at least 95% lean.

    Carrot Stuffed Bison Tenderloin
    1. Place a roasting pan in the oven at 400 degrees to pre-heat.
    2. Blanche carrots: Put them, whole, into a pot of boiling water for 5 minutes, then immediately throw them into a bowl of ice water. Remove them after 5 minutes, and pat them dry with a paper towel.
    3. In a small bowl, combine all-purpose seasoning, lemon pepper seasoning, and coriander. Rub mixture all over tenderloin.
    4. Insert a boning knife, lengthwise, into the center of tenderloin. Then turn, making a hole. Repeat from the other end.
    5. Insert the whole carrots into the center incisions, making sure that the carrots meet in the center.
    6. Lower oven heat to 250 degrees. Roast tenderloin until medium-rare (our Pritikin chefs' recommendation for the best flavor), which is until a meat thermometer reads 135 degrees (usually about 1 hour). Allow the tenderloin to rest on the carving board for 15 minutes before slicing.
    Blueberry Balsamic Reduction
    1. While tenderloin is finishing up in the oven, combine In a sauce pan on the stove the blueberries and balsamic vinegar. Bring to a boil.
    2. Reduce flame and let simmer for 10 minutes. Cool and blend in a food processor. Serve with bison.
