With a Spanish-inspired roasted red pepper sauce, these butter-basted bison striploin steaks explode with delicious flavours in every bite. 


  1. Romesco Sauce: In food processor, pulse together almonds and garlic until coarsely ground. Add roasted red peppers, tomato, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, paprika and smoked paprika; pulse until smooth. Stir in parsley; set aside.

  2. Pan-Seared Bison Striploin Steaks: Pat steaks dry with paper towel. Season all over with salt and pepper. Heat oil in large heavy-bottom skillet set over medium-high heat; sear steaks for 2 minutes per side. Stir in butter, thyme, rosemary and garlic. Baste steak with melted butter; cook for 4 to 6 minutes for medium-rare, or until cooked as desired. Transfer to plate; let stand for 10 minutes before slicing. Keep warm.

  3. Roasted Rapini and Blistered Tomatoes: Meanwhile, preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Toss together rapini, half each of the olive oil, salt and pepper, and red pepper flakes. Arrange on one half of unlined baking sheet. Toss together tomatoes, and remaining olive oil, salt and pepper; arrange on remaining half of baking sheet. Roast for 12 to 15 minutes or until rapini is tender and tomatoes start to blister.

  4. Smear 1/3 cup (75 mL) of the Romesco Sauce onto each plate. Slice bison steak and serve with rapini and tomatoes on each plate.


  • Substitute broccoli florets or broccolini for rapini if desired.

  • Prepared jarred roasted red peppers to cut down on prep time.
