High Plains Bison Pot Roast with Tomato’s, Onions, Peppers, Mushrooms and Cheesy Creamy Polenta

Nothing says comfort more than slow cooked food made with LOVE.  Slow cooking releases all of the flavor in food and makes it tender, luscious and warm.  This High Plains Bison Pot Roast cooks for 8 hours on low so that it seasons the cooking broth and becomes so moist and tender you can pick at it with your fingers……and the heck with a fork!  The recipe is so good you can cut this High Plains Bison Pot Roast with a spoon :-)

Instead of making gravy with the cooking broth I made creamy cheesy polenta.  With the tender High Plains Bison Pot Roast and the slow cooked veggies this make an excellent meal….and something a little different than the same old potatoes and carrots.

Just follow our easy step-by-step recipe with pictures all along the way and you too can soon  be eating this fabulous meal.  Enjoy!

    I would like to see an answer to Gurrygroup's question. I was planning to use a Pressure Cooker for my High Plains Bison Pot Roast. What say you???

  • Gurrygroup

    I would love to know if bison can be prepared in a pressure cooker. Your pot roast recipe looks delicious!

    Chef Forrest: keep cooking!  I just wanted to let you know that I showed my wife this picture, and even though I had just placed an order for chateaubriand and prime rib earlier that day, she insisted that I place another order for the roast as well because she wanted to make this one evening!  Two bison orders in the same day, that is a new record for me!  I can't wait to try this recipe...
