Carrot Stuffed Bison Tenderloin

  • 2 whole carrots peeled
  • 2 tablespoons Pritikin® All-Purpose Seasoning*
  • 2 tablespoons salt free lemon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons ground coriander
  • 2 pounds grass-fed bison tenderloin cleaned, ends removed

Blueberry Balsamic Reduction

  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar


Carrot Stuffed Bison Tenderloin

  • Place a roasting pan in the oven at 400 degrees to pre-heat.
  • 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.
  • In a small bowl, combine all-purpose seasoning, lemon pepper seasoning, and coriander. Rub mixture all over tenderloin.
  • Insert a boning knife, lengthwise, into the center of tenderloin. Then turn, making a hole. Repeat from the other end.
  • Insert the whole carrots into the center incisions, making sure that the carrots meet in the center.
  • 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

  • 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.
  • Reduce flame and let simmer for 10 minutes. Cool and blend in a food processor. Serve with bison.
