1) Put 1 lb of ground beef/bison on skillet
2) Turn stovetop to medium heat
3) Try my best to make the meat as cooked as possible
I always end up with pink spots in the middle of the meat. Is there anything I can do to cook these meats better? (also, I just bought ground turkey and plan on using the same cooking method)
I'm new to cooking, so don't judge ... lol.
Iv'e been eating wild game all my life, including bison. I like it rear to med rear. Don't worry about color, just cook it to 140 degrees or more.
Most wild game should be cooked rear to med or it gets too dry because of the lack of fat. Cook it as you would a rib eye or T-bone.
I have made it in sushi just by searing it for 2 minutes per side and marinating it Saki and soy sauce for 30 minutes. It's raw, with no ill effects.
