Serves: 2-3 • Cooking time: 25 minutes

Enjoy the savory tenderness of bison engulfed in the rich spices of thai chilies, soy sauce, and the fresh and distinguishable taste of Thai Basil for an all encompassing flavor ride.


• 2 pounds of Bison Skirt Steak

• Your choice of Vegetables (carrots, bell peppers, onions, broccoli)

• 1 cup very thinly sliced fresh basil leaves

• 2 tablespoons minced Thai chilies, Serrano, or other preferred hot pepper


• ⅓ cup Bison broth 

• 1 tablespoon oyster sauce

• 1 tablespoon soy sauce, or to preference

• 2 teaspoons fish sauce

• 2 teaspoon brown sugar

• 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

• 4 cloves garlic, minced


2 cups cooked rice

Cooking Instructions:

Step 1

Whisk bison broth, oyster sauce, soy sauce, fish sauce, and brown sugar together in a bowl until well blended.

Step 2

Heat large skillet over high heat. Drizzle in oil. Add thinly sliced bison skirt steak and fry until it loses its raw color, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in vegetables.

Continue cooking on high heat until some of the juices start to caramelize in the bottom of the pan, about 2 or 3 more minutes.

Step 3

Pour in your sauce mixture, cook and stir until sauce has deglazed the bottom of the pan. Continue to cook until sauce glazes onto the meat, 1 or 2 more minutes. Remove from heat.

Stir in basil. Cook and stir until basil is wilted, about 20 seconds.

Serve with rice.
