  • Heat olive oil in a non-stick skillet over medium-low heat, swirling to cover bottom of the skillet. Add meatballs and cook undisturbed, about 4 minutes. Continue to cook, turning meatballs until browned evenly on all sides, about 6 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

Cook's Notes:

These meatballs are best when they are cooked at a medium-low temperature, uncovered. Do not sear.

It was not bad. However, the lacking of a binder made some my meatballs fall apart even when they were undisturbed. Other than that, it tasted really good. Read More

I thought they were really good although I would probably up the seasonings next time. I did use 12oz of bison and upped the seasonings accordingly other than that I followed the recipe. Read More

This is a very easy and delicious recipe. I don't use bison often so I really needed to know which seasonings would be best to bring out the flavor. I also really appreciated the tip on using medium low heat. I served the meatballs over egg noodles with a mushroom gravy. Yummy! Read More

I doubled the recipe and added a teaspoon of peppered habanero spice for a little heat to compliment a slightly sweet red mushroom & garlic sauce & butterfly naïf pasta. Amazing! Read More

Really delicious way to use bison. I omitted the cumin and used fresh herbs and added rosemary. Big hit with my daughter as well. Add rigatoni pasta and Parmesan to the pan for a nice pasta dish. Read More

These were phenomenal! I made these for meatball hoagies and the flavor complimented the sauce so well! It's a nice break from the traditional italian meatball. Read More
