Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground bison
  • 1/2 cup white onion, diced
  • 2 tbsp black olives, diced
  • 1/4 cup green bell pepper, diced
  • 2 large garlic cloves, diced
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp basil
  • Sea salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 jar (24 oz) unsalted tomato sauce (organic, if possible)

Instructions

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients. Mix together with your hands.
  2. In a large, deep frying pan, heat oil on medium heat. While oil is warming, form golf-ball size meatballs.
  3. Put the meatballs into the pan, cook for 2 to 3 minutes, then flip. Turn them every 2 to 3 minutes to brown the sides.
  4. Lower heat to medium, pour sauce over meatballs and cover. Cook for an additional 5 to 10 minutes stirring occasionally until thoroughly cooked.

“Bison is by far my favorite meat to use because it is leaner than chicken, packed with protein and tastes like filet mignon. Try this with a side of broccoli or on a whole wheat sub.” – Taylor Ryan, Oxygen reader.
