1. Begin by seasoning the Bison steaks with salt and pepper to your liking. Allow them to rest at room temperature for 30 minutes.

2. In a saucepan, add 2 tablespoons oil and sweat shallots. Then, add mushrooms and season with a teaspoon of salt. Allow moisture to come out of mushrooms.

3. Add ½ cup bourbon and 1 tablespoon green peppercorns and reduce by half.

4. Pour in cream and continue to reduce until sauce begins to thicken. Gradually whisk 2 tablespoons of butter into sauce. Add lemon juice to finish and set to the side.

5. In a separate pan, sauté the Bison steaks in 2 tablespoons butter until they reach medium-rare doneness, approximately 2-3 minutes per side. Remove from heat and let them rest for 5-10 minutes.

6. Slice the Bison steaks against the grain and arrange them on serving plates. Pour the mushroom sauce over the steaks and serve. Enjoy your delicious meal!
