Spicy Orange Bison Balls Recipe
This recipe is inspired by the retro classic cocktail meatballs in grape jelly. I took that idea, along with my love of spicy orange beef, and came up with this combination.
Delicious and simple, made this for guests celebrating America with buffalo, corn on the cob and apple pie. Great for large groups noshing. I upped the marmalade a touch to get a sweet tang to the buffalo. I did not cook the balls as long as the recipe called for because I wante
Great first time bison recipe! Subbed polynesian sauce for marmalade; hot sauce for chili paste; and apple cider vinegar for rice wine vinegar. Took an extra 30 min to reduce the sauce, but didn't affect anything else. Served over sticky rice.
I loved this recipe -- although I used pre-bought Turkey meatballsl. I used Sriracha for the Asian chile pepper sauce, and I will probably use a little more marmalade the next time a make it (or maybe add some a little OJ or fresh orange peels). Mine turned out a little more spicy than orange-y. Still, I really enjoyed this easy, healthy recipe.
This was a great recipe. Our local grocer had ground bison and I wanted to do something other than a bison burger. I substituted siracha for the Asian sauce and instead of using 3 cups of water, I used 2 cups. I still had to use a little cornstarch to thicken up the sauce. I also added some roasted broccoli to the sauce at the end and served over jasmine rice! It won my boyfriend’s seal of approval.
Bison ribs are simmered until tender, marinated in a honey-orange sauce, then grilled and served with more sauce.
You can make these ahead and freeze them without the glaze, then the day of the party, defrost them and simply reheat in the sauce.
