Sweet and Spicy Asian-Inspired Bison Meat Balls

1 pound Owl Creek Bison ground bison

1 T olive oil

1/4 cup finely minced onion

2 t. minced fresh ginger

3 cloves garlic, minced

2 T soy sauce

2 T sweet chili sauce

2 t sesame oil

1/3 cup cilantro, finely chopped

1 egg, beaten

1/3 cup bread crumbs


Preheat oven to 400 °. Saute onion, garlic, and ginger in olive oil until soft. Cool. Mix rest of ingredients together and then add the onion mixture. Shape into balls (I like to make them ¾ to 1 inch in diameter for lettuce wraps). Place on baking sheet and bake until pink is gone, about 10 minutes for 1 inch size meat balls, a bit longer for larger ones.

Serve with rice and sweet chili sauce or as a lettuce wrap.
