As long as you don't cook it past medium rare, the texture really mirrors good beef. It's a whole lot leaner, as well as significantly lower in cholesterol. but if you overcook it, it will be inedible.
There's a bison farmer at the Union Square Greenmarket, and I have to say we really enjoy the steaks from time to time. Expensive, tho... but so is all grass fed meat.
