Grilled Bison Tenderloin, Potato Flan and Shiitake Mushroom Vinaigrette with Fresh Arugula

Chef Ben Kramer,
Lux Solé

The first note is textural, with a tender mouthfeel. The rich cheese and potato perfectly balance the lean bison. Earthy mushroom harmonizes beautifully, while arugula gives it a delightfully peppery staccato finish. Lux Solé buys its bison from Hidden Acres Buffalo Ranch, located near McCreary, which receives its hay from the Warwaruk brothers’ farm. The flan is best made a day ahead. Reheat at 400˚F for 10-15 min.
