This weekend, while relaxing on the solo, I had a craving for meatballs. No idea why, but they sounded really good.
Um… not those meatballs.
I wanted some hearty, meaty, um… meatballs. Being that I am not a huge fan of red meat, and the sound of a juicy beef steak doesn’t really, ever, appeal to me, I decided on a new flavor.
- 1/2 lb ground bison
- 1/4 lb ground lamb
- 1 egg
- 1/2 red onion, diced
- 1 clove garlic, crushed
- 2 green onions, thinly sliced, about 1-2 tbsp
- 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 2 tsp Tamari or soy sauce
- good sized squirt sriracha sauce (<–technical term)
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- cayenne pepper
Mix all ingredients together with gloved hands (ew, I can’t touch raw meat…) and form into round, meatball shapes. If needed, place in the refrigerator for a half hour to help with forming.
Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes, turning once if desired.
While these bad boys were baking I threw together a new creation…
Spicy Cilantro Cucumber Taziki Sauce
- 1 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
- 1/2-1 clove garlic, crushed
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 cucumber, diced
- chopped red peppers (optional)
- salt and pepper
Again, mix all ingredients together and serve over meatballs. 🙂 EASY.
There you have it. A tasty, healthy, protein filled, and super good recipe. Don’t say I never gave you anything. 😉
