Serves 8

  • 1 Tbs. grapeseed oil
  • 1 3-lb. bison clod roast
  • 1 large brown onion, sliced and quartered
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1 ½ cups robust red wine, such as a Spanish Garnacha
  • 4 cups low-sodium organic beef broth
  • 2 Tbs. organic tomato paste
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 tsp. thyme
  • 3 Tbs. orange zest, julienned
  1. Heat grapeseed oil in large, heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high heat. Add roast, and sear meat on all sides. Transfer to slow cooker.
  2. Reduce heat to medium; sauté onions in olive oil until softened. Add garlic, and cook for one minute more. Add wine, and bring to a boil for a few minutes. Add broth, tomato paste, bay leaf, thyme, and orange zest, and return to a boil.
  3. Pour liquid over meat in slow cooker. Cover, and cook on high until meat is cooked through, about 5 hours. Remove roast from slow cooker, loosely tent with aluminum foil, and set aside. Pour sauce back into large pot over medium-high heat, and boil, uncovered, until reduced by one-third.
  4. Carefully cut meat into thick slices, place on deep platter, and pour 1 cup of sauce over top. Pass more sauce on the side.
