Active Time: 1 hour
Total Time: 1 hour

Ingredients

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 1/2 cups finely chopped onion
1 cup finely chopped carrot
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2 tablespoons paprika
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, plus more to taste
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 pound ground bison
1/2 cup pomegranate juice
1 14-ounce can diced tomatoes
1 cup chopped fresh cilantro, divided
1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
1 tablespoon lemon juice, plus more to taste
1 pound whole-wheat wide pasta, such as pappardelle or fettuccine
1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt, preferably Greek-style (see Note)

Preparation

Put a pot of water on to boil.

Heat oil in a large, high-sided skillet or Dutch panggangan over medium heat. Add onion, carrot and celery; cook, covered, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 10 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute more. Stir in paprika, coriander, salt, pepper, cumin and cinnamon. Cook, stirring, until the vegetables are well coated and the spices are fragrant, about 45 seconds.

Increase the heat to medium-high and add bison. Cook, stirring and breaking it up with a wooden spoon, until no longer pink, 4 to 6 minutes. Add pomegranate juice and scrape up any browned bits.

Stir in tomatoes and juice, 3/4 cup cilantro, mint and lemon juice. Bring to a simmer. Reduce heat; cook, uncovered, maintaining a gentle simmer and stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes. Add a little water if the sauce gets too thick; if it’s too thin, increase the heat and boil for a few minutes. Season with more pepper and lemon juice, if desired.

Meanwhile, cook pasta in boiling water until just tender, about 9 minutes or according to package directions. Drain and divide the pasta among 8 shallow bowls. Spoon the sauce over the noodles and garnish with a dollop of yogurt and a sprinkle of the remaining cilantro.

Tips & Notes

Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate the sauce (Steps 2-3) for up to 3 days. Reheat on low; thin the sauce with a little water if desired.

Note: Greek-style yogurt is made by removing the whey from cultured milk, which gives the yogurt an extra-thick and creamy texture. Look for it with other yogurt in large supermarkets.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
