Potosi, MO (PressExposure) November 03, 2009 -- Steak packs and sausage gift baskets have long been popular holiday gifts. Both consumers and businesses rely on these old standbys for the hard-to-buy-for relative, friend, or corporate associate. However, this year, consider the alternatives to these traditional steak gifts. Give the gift of a new culinary adventure; bison meat.
Bison meat is a unique and delicious gift option for many. Plus, it is nutritious with on average 75% less fat and 40% more protein than beef. Often referred to as buffalo, bison meat offers all the flavor and juiciness of red meat, but has less fat, calories and cholesterol than even skinless chicken meat.
âBe unique this year. Give the gift of taste, that your recipient isnât going to regret sinking their teeth intoâ said Skip Sayers, owner of SayersBrook Bison Ranch and the bison e-commerce store http://www.americangourmet.net. âPlus, when you give the gift of bison, you are guaranteed no returns to the mall or another gift getting thrown into the closet collection. We offer an extensive selection of bison cuts and a variety of samplers, gift packs and baskets to choose from.â
For the first time bison eater, American Gourmetâs sampler packs offer a mix of bison cuts and other bison items. The Bison Lovers Sampler for example includes bison burgers, bison brats, bison top filets, bison summer sausage and bison jerky; a collection of American Gourmetâs most popular bison items.
For the grilling aficionado in the family, consider American Gourmetâs Grill Masters Sampler pack. This gourmet meat gift assortment includes Bison Back Ribs, Bison Kabob Meat, Bison Filet Mignon, Bison Sirloin Steaks and a Bison Ribeye. Breakfast lovers will enjoy the breakfast sampler with bison bacon and bison sausage links and patties. A delicious and healthy alternative to the pork breakfast staples.
Bison also makes a great corporate gift. Baskets filled with bison sausage, bison jerky, cheese (in the shape of bison) and other treats like chocolate, pita chips, honey and nuts are the perfect gift to send to an office. Gift certificates are also available and can be used to purchase all items in the store, including fully prepared dishes such as bison stew, bison chili, twice baked potatoes with bison bits and more.
A unique gift that keeps on giving is the Bison of the Month gift pack. Packages range from 3-month packs that are spread throughout the year to a monthly program. A fabulous way to introduce bison meat to someone, meat gift packs ship a featured bison meat product each month including main dishes like bison filet mignon, bison baby back ribs and burgers and brats. To mix things up, some months include dishes like the bison soup sampler, bison chili and bison lasagna.
âGiving the gift of bison is not only unique, but shows the recipient that you put thought into the gift, instead of relying on an old standby. Bison meat will be the perfect addition to your holiday shopping list,â said Skip Sayers.
