Transfer to plate. Stir onion, garlic, thyme and rosemary into skillet; cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until slightly softened. Pour in stock, tomato sauce and Worcestershire sauce; bring to boil. Return bison to pan; reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and cook for 2 ½ to 3 hours or until very tender.
  2. Transfer bison to large bowl; let rest for 10 minutes. Shred bison using two forks. Toss with some of the cooking juices. Return to skillet; keep warm.

  5. Sliders with Mango Chutney & Yogurt Sauce: In saucepan set over medium-high heat, combine mango, raisins, sugar, vinegar, shallot, garlic, ginger, mustard seeds, cardamom pods, clove, crushed coriander, cumin and chili flakes; bring to boil.
