Bison is not a meat that you often think of as being kosher, and until now it has not been easy to get kosher bison. However, recently GrillersPride has secured a reliable source of Glatt Kosher bison making it readily available . This is really exciting news as it is a really healthy type of red meat to eat. It is in fact lower in cholesterol and in calories than skinless chicken!! Yes, that is fact as you can see from the table below which is referenced by the USDA.

So I went to the pantry to see what inspired me, and to my absolute delight, right in from of my eyes were some dried apricots and some pitted dates! Why was I so excited to see those ingredients?

It sounded so good at the time, and I had vowed I would try to do something like it. Well, this was my opportunity. I did not have turmeric, so I used curry instead. Av, Hadar, thanks for the inspiration. It is so much fun to get my cooking inspiration from my kids. Keep cooking guys!! Continue reading
