The Perfect Bison Roast

Choice of Rangeland Roast (Eye of Round, Sirloin Tip, etc…) 1 piece around 4lbs (we used Eye of Round)
Extra-Virgin Olive Oil 2 tbsp. 
Salt  2 tsp.
Garlic, minced 3 cloves
Pepper 1 tsp.
Rosemary, chopped 1 tbsp.
Leaves from 1 thyme sprig, Chopped 1 tbsp.


  • Recommended: let the roast sit uncovered at room temperature for 1 to 2 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 475°. In a small bowl, combine oil, garlic, rosemary, thyme, salt, and pepper. Rub over the roast until covered, lightly.
  • Place roast in roasting pan fitted with a roasting rack. Roast for 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 275°.
  • Add a cup of water to the bottom of the roasting pan. This will keep the roast moist and will allow for some extra flavour juices to make gravy.
  • Cook roast, covered for 1 hour 10 minutes or until an internal temp of 140°F to 145°f (60°C – 63°C) for rare to medium-rare. Never cook past internal temp of 155°f.
  • Remove from oven and let rest 10 to 15 minutes before serving.
