Bison Burgers and Steak

Well, the title says it all...bison burgers and steak are what was for dinner last night, along with some grilled eggplant and portabella mushrooms. It was sheer awesomeness from a grill. While we here at the Kitchen Ninja house try to restrict red meat consumption to once a week, when we do eat red meat, its gonna be worth it. I didn't use chimichurri for the steaks, it was getting late and we were getting hungry, so I used a steak seasoning blend that I rubbed into the steaks. For the bison burgers, they have such a wonderful flavor, you don't wanna cover it up. Mixing the ground meat with some Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, salt and pepper is more than enough for some moist delicious bison burgers! That mix is good for all ground burgers really.

With it being Memorial Day weekend, its officially summer, so drag out those grills! Just about anything can be grilled up in a jiffy. Veggies are good on the grill too. If you're vegetarian, then ground up some eggplant, onion, zucchini and garlic in the food processor and shape into patties, or use big beefy portabellas as a hamburger patty. That charcoal flavor is summer to me, gotta love the grill! Of course, the Kitchen Ninja is charcoal ONLY! No gas grills around here!

In honor of Memorial Day, I'd like to thank those men and women in the service. My cousin is currently serving in Afghanistan, and I have a friend who's husband is overseas as well. In this time of uncertainty, I'm glad we have the men and women in uniform backing us up! My grandfather served during the very end of WWII and the Vietnam War, he survived to come home to his family, but many of his colleages didn't. That's what Memorial Day is for, remembering those fallen in past and current wars. Thank you, soldiers, for your sacrifice, thank you!
