A delightful fusion of flavors, this Chinese-inspired stir-fry combines tender bison, nutritious collard greens, and hearty beans, all cooked to perfection in a skillet. This dish is both healthy and delicious, perfect for a family dinner.


  • 1 lb bison steak, thinly sliced
  • 1 bunch collard greens, chopped
  • 1 cup cooked beans (black beans or kidney beans work well)
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-inch piece ginger, minced
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Cooked rice or noodles (optional, for serving)


  1. Prepare the Marinade: In a bowl, combine the soy sauce, oyster sauce, hoisin sauce, minced garlic, and minced ginger. Add the thinly sliced bison to the bowl and mix well. Let it marinate for at least 15 minutes.
  2. Prepare the Collard Greens: While the bison is marinating, wash and chop the collard greens into bite-sized pieces.
  3. Cook the Bison: Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the marinated bison to the skillet and stir-fry until it is browned and cooked through, about 3-5 minutes. Remove the bison from the skillet and set aside.
  4. Stir-Fry the Collard Greens and Beans: In the same skillet, add the remaining 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil. Add the chopped collard greens and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes until they start to wilt. Add the cooked beans to the skillet and continue to stir-fry for another 2 minutes.
  5. Combine and Thicken: Return the cooked bison to the skillet. In a small bowl, mix the cornstarch with 1/4 cup of water to create a slurry. Pour the slurry into the skillet and stir well to combine. Cook for another 2 minutes until the sauce thickens. Drizzle the sesame oil over the stir-fry and mix well. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Serve: Serve the bison stir-fry over cooked rice or noodles if desired.

This Bison Stir-Fry with Collard Greens and Beans is a quick and nutritious meal that brings together the best of Chinese flavors with a unique twist. Enjoy this dish as a wholesome dinner with your family!
