Balsamic-Glazed Bison Sirloin Steaks
I love a good sirloin steak! Some people don't know that the sirloin can actually be divided up into several different cuts of sirloin, such as the top sirloin, or bottom sirloin, amongst other cuts. Regardless of what cut of sirloin you choose, it will always be lean and juicy!
If you're on a diet, this tasty treat is perfect for you. Balsamic vinegar carries a number of health benefits. Balsamic vinegar itself contains no fat and virtually no sugar. Like bison, it has been proven to lower cholesterol while being a natural appetite suppressant. In other words, Bison and balsamic are the perfect pair as you start your journey to weight loss and healthy eating habits.
With our recipe below, you too can create this fantastic balsamic-glazed sirloin!
Bison Sirloin Steak
2 teaspoons sesame seeds
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/8 teaspoon hot red pepper flakes
3 tablespoons red cooking wine

2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon honey
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
Pat steak dry and season lightly with salt and pepper.
Spread 1 teaspoon sesame seeds evenly on one side of steak.
In a large heavy skillet heat oil over moderately high heat until it begins to smoke and add steak, sesame-seed-side down.
Spread remaining sesame seeds on top of steak.
Cook steak 1 1/2 minutes on each side for medium-rare meat and transfer with a slotted spatula to a small platter. Keep steak warm. (If you want to cook the steak longer, wrap the steak in foil for 5-10 minutes)
Pour off almost all fat from skillet and add garlic and red pepper flakes.
Cook garlic mixture over moderate heat, stirring, 10 seconds
Add red wine.
Boil mixture until almost all liquid is evaporated and remove skillet from heat.
Add soy sauce, vinegar, and honey and bring to a simmer while stirring.
Add butter and stir over low heat until incorporated.
Spoon glaze over steak.
