    Ohmygosh! I made this with pearl couscous and spinach. I added mushrooms. YUMMY! I think the Balsamic Vinegar adds a nice kick. I always use ground Bison instead of ground beef, anyway, so it was refreshing to see this recipe - and the other Bison recipes at Stetted's web site!

    It as really good! I would add more spice and omit the vinegar. I added celery and mushrooms and actually used frozen spinach. My boys went for 2nds so it's a keeper!!

    I made some tweaks to this recipe and the family LOVED IT!! First I added a stalk of chopped celery, chopped mini sweet peppers and chopped fresh mushrooms to the chopped onion, minced garlic & bison. To balance out the meat to grain ratio, I added 1 cup quinoa, 1 cup brown rice & 1/2 cup lintels with 2 cups of chicken stock and 1 cup water & tomato paste. Adding the tomato paste before this step tends to make it stick to the bottom and burn. After 20 minutes of cooking I added 3 cups chopped kale and one cup chopped spinach. The dish lacked acidity so in a small sauce pan I simmered a can of diced tomatoes, 1 tbsp white wine and roughly 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar. Stir in the tomato vinegar mixture and stew for a couple minutes at the end. Serve with low fat cottage cheese. The kids ATE IT UP!

    GREAT! We used quinoa and Spinach, did not put the Balsamic Vinegar. It was so easy to make and taste even better reheated the next day. This will definitely be on our regular list.
