Are you tired of beef, chicken, pork, and fish? It’s difficult to get away from the endless cycle of these four types of meat. I know. That’s why you should try this Bison and Vegetable Stew! It’s delicious, hearty, and easy to throw together in a slow cooker.

I love meals with grass-fed beef and free-range chicken. However, this bison recipe is going on my list of favorites. Bison is a nutritional powerhouse with protein, iron, vitamin B, and Omega-3s. Bison contains just as much of that essential fatty acid as salmon, with a deep umami flavor that is richer than that of beef.

Stewed with this mouthwatering meat are carrots, celery, and kale. These veggies are high in fiber to support your digestion, and boast a bundle of vitamins and minerals to boot!

Fresh herbs and a savory saltiness bring this stew to another level. After resting in a crock pot for six to eight hours, the tender ingredients will melt in your mouth. There’s no way you won’t fall in love with this nourishing, full-bodied bison and vegetable stew that will keep you happy, healthy, and full.
