"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

The Eat-Clean Diet Cookbook

1. In a container with a lid place the flour, sea salt, pepper, oregano and basil. Put the lid on the container and shake. Now add the cubed bison or beef to the flour and shake again to coat each piece with flour and seasonings. Set aside.

2. In a large skillet, place 1 1/2 Tbsp olive oil and set over medium-high heat. Remove the meat cubes from the flour mixture one at a time. This ensures no excess of flour, and the coating on each cube will not be disturbed. Place the meat in the skillet. You may have to brown the meat in batches. Once the meat is nicely browned, remove from the skillet. Place the meat in the bowl of a slow cooker. Add all remaining ingredients to the slow cooker, mix gently and set to high. Cook covered for 6 hours. Serve hot!
