Bison Tacos

Uh, no offense, dude...

Dinner started last night when I had some ground bison show up in the reefer.
Right along side a new onion. And red tomato. Um, there was come of those cheap-ass mushrooms, too-- you know, the button-type...

So find a knife, a counter, the onion, the 'shrooms..

Onions(~1/2 cut to desired size); 1/2 pkg. mushrooms cut accordingly.

Marinade:
Worchestershire Sauce
Soyu (Soy Sauce)
Balsamic Vinegar
3 tbsp. Fajita seasoning
some "extra" beer

In one container, put cut onions and mushrooms; top with Marinade;

Crumble raw ground meat into a separate container and season/ marinade according to divine guidance.

NEXT DAY
In a 10" cast iron skillet, brown 1# ground bison meat
When ~75% done, add onion/ mushroom marinaded mix from the night before. Keep meat covered to retain moisture.

Sides Served C'est Soir:

grated cheese blend-- white and yellow cheddars
diced tomato
chopped onion
lettuce (bib)
warm flour tortillas
Sour cream
salsa
pinto beans (no reefer should lack a bowlfull or three of these most diverse "leftovers"...)

All's I did was marinade the ground meat (did start with a very lean choice, if you note..) overnight, then commence to individually dishing up sides while the buffler sauteed.
Add some pickled Jalapenos (which I did, neglecting to menu 'till now!)...

Some Assembly Required...

Take your warm tortilla; sprinkle a little of that cheese blend inside...
Meat Mix on top-- helps the cheese melt, too.
Some fresh tomatoes, onions, lettuce.

Extra sour cream, please. Thank you.
(You're welcome...)

Salsa, sour cream, and a pickled jalapeno on the side; three tacos later you'll claim Nirvana

Don't forget to scramble three eggs for mixing with the leftovers tomorrow; got breakfast and lunch tacos, as well as dinner, off of one stove-firing.

Slainte!

Ashley-- try the oatmeal ones coming very soon on mt Song-- fructose (natural fruit sugar in stead of refined cane...)

Edain, I was on me merry way when a couple RMCP turned me back-- seems they don't agree about a man serving his full scarlet letter term DAY FOR DAY comprises debt-to-society-paid-in-full either... Once a criminal, always a criminal.

Ken, M'buddy, I believe buffler and bison one and the same, Sir, one and the same. [Better wici- it to be sure; you know I'm loony as a left-handed Superbowl bat...]
