bison/beef stew

i don't know about you folks, but where i'm from (manitoba, canada), bison meat is readily available. it is mostly free run bison, because farmers are trying to re-introduce the species or something.

tonight i made a really good stew out of bison meat. this recipe is just as good with stewing beef. it just takes a bit of patience.
