Shredded Bison

This easy and flavorful recipe is a summertime favorite in our house! Roasts are usually attributed to fall time, cold weather, pot roasts and soups so let me introduce you to the best meat for some great summer time recipes!

What is so great about this roast is that the seasoning is very mild so it is very versatile and can be used in countless recipes. I have used this shredded bison as an entree with sides, it is so tender you don't even need a sauce over it but you can definitely top with some BBQ! I don't think I could narrow down which recipes I have loved this meat in the most so I will give you a list of all of the ways I have used this meat so I said, the options are endless!


-street tacos



-burrito bowls







  • 3-4 lb Bison Chuck Roast
  • 2 bottles of Modelo Especial
  • 2 white onions – quartered
  • 8 cloves of garlic – crushed
  • 1 TB Paprika
  • 1 TB Cumin
  • 1 TB Coriander
  • 1 TB Garlic Powder
  • 1 TB Oregano
  • Salt and Pepper




  1. Add beer, garlic and onions to slow cooker, turn to high
  2. Mix dry seasonings together
  3. Sear the chuck over high heat until caramelized on all sides
  4. Remove chuck from skillet, pat dry and coat with the dry seasoning mix
  5. Set chuck in slow cooker over onions, cover and cook on high 6-7 hours or on low for 12-14 hours


*Do not remove lid to “check on the meat” it is doing just fine I promise and each time the lid opens you will need to add to the cook time, plus the delicious smell will be too hard to resist!


  1. Once time is up, shred the roast, it should be easy, if not some cook time will need to be added
  2. Use shredded meat in any dish! We recommend, flautas, tacos, burrito bowls, enchiladas, or just as a stand-alone meat!
