Bison

My local food store doesn't carry ALOT of things, but it recently started carrying bison steaks, medallions or whatever. Comes in a box from some company. Anyone ever try it? I might pick some up this weekend and give it a taste.

Just bison burger, from the source, the place that raises them has a restaurant adjacent. Dry, but good.
Can't help you with a steak.

Is it gamey like some lamb? or no?

The burgers weren't gamey at all, just dry, but then I don't think deer burger is gamey. The steaks are another topic. I'll eat a venison steak (used to hunt, too), but don't tell me it's the same as beef.

Yeah, I read it was very lean.

I was going to just pick up a pack, grill one piece see what it tastes like. No sauce or anything.

If I was you I'd whip up some of that steak sauce you posted not too long ago.

Well, I never bought "Bison in a box" - but when I lived in Colorado I used to eat bison (American Buffalo) frequently. It is very lean - not gamey tasting at all - and compared to grass-fed beef, it was a little sweeter tasting.

Bison is not gamy at all I should know because I hate gamy meats. We eat bison all the time here. Just don't over cook it it should be cooked to medium rare or medium, burgers can be cooked longer. I think you will really like it.
