Bison, Squash, baking soda, crockpot

This hearty and flavorful stew combines tender bison meat with the natural sweetness of squash, all slow-cooked to perfection in a crockpot. Perfect for a cozy family meal, this British-inspired dish will warm you up on a chilly evening.


  • 1.5 pounds bison meat, cubed
  • 2 cups butternut squash, peeled and cubed
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes (canned or fresh)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley for garnish (optional)


  1. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the cubed bison meat and brown on all sides. This should take about 5-7 minutes.
  2. While the bison is browning, peel and cube the butternut squash, chop the onion, and mince the garlic.
  3. Transfer the browned bison to the crockpot.
  4. Add the cubed squash, chopped onion, minced garlic, beef broth, diced tomatoes, dried thyme, dried rosemary, baking soda, salt, and pepper.
  5. Set the crockpot to low and cook for 6-8 hours, or until the bison is tender and the squash is soft. If you’re short on time, you can set the crockpot to high and cook for 3-4 hours.
  6. Once the stew is cooked, taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.
  7. Ladle the stew into bowls and garnish with fresh parsley if desired.

This Slow-Cooked Bison and Squash Stew is a simple yet delicious meal that brings a touch of British comfort to your table. The slow cooking process ensures that the bison is tender and the flavors are well melded, making it a perfect dish for any occasion. Enjoy with a side of crusty bread or mashed potatoes for a complete meal!
