Bison Brochettes and Quinoa

My husband pulled out some of the bison meat we bought at Ranch les Beaux Bisons. We had picked up some ground and stewing meat during our last visit. The meat, as it was the first time, was super tasty. But although it tasted great, I wouldn't recommend stewing meat for brochettes. It was a little tough. Had we used proper brochettes meat this meal would have blown us through the roof. Luckily, my husband marinated the meat for a few hours in the fridge beforehand, so it wasn't as tough as it could have been. The marinade complemented the meat very well. It was a mixture of soya sauce, rice vinegar and tamari sauce. For each skewer my husband added some red onion, red, yellow and orange peppers, mushrooms, tomato and garlic. Throwing garlic cloves on these and barbecuing it is the best! It ads so much flavour. He served these alongside some quinoa topped with cilantro and cumin. Yum!
