People are always trying to dress up meatball dishes.
We’ve seen them add vegetables, smother them with sauce, catapult them into mounds of spaghetti, and even (brace yourself) replace the meat for vegetables instead. Now that is just gross. They are a great meal and very versatile, but no one seems to know the right recipe to choose...
Look no further!
We have our own version of “better than beef,” meatballs that are less fatty, more protein saturated, WAY less greasy, and better for you altogether than meatballs made out of store bought beef! Not only that, they taste amazing and people who don’t know can hardly tell the difference (seriously, we tested it out and the girls had no idea they were eating venison!) You can make them yourself easily, and more importantly, eat with the knowledge you are living off of the land.
And if you are looking for a nice dinner fully made by you to impress on Valentine’s Day, these may or may not (or may) be the perfect idea.
3 pounds of good quality ground venison - (remember the best way is to do it yourself)
2 tsp toasted fennel seeds
1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
¼ tsp dried rosemary
½ red peppers flakes
1 tsp salt
1 cup bread crumbs
1 tbsp bacon grease (if you don’t have some in the fridge… go make bacon right now and start your jar 😉)
1 cup dry red wine (a Pinot or Cabernet will work best)
1 cup beef
We wouldn't mention our homemade marinara sauce without giving you the recipe for this too. This adds just the right touch!
This recipe is even more simple!
2 tsp Italian seasoning (oregano, thyme, margerum, rosemary, basil)
1 can crushed tomatoes
1 clove of garlic
