Thai Venison Mini Meatballs

In the interest of total disclosure, my wife’s initial observation of these was, “those are some nice looking turds”; and for that reason a recipe without a picture (and you are not getting a thousand words either).  A picture would be super helpful but these are a dry, no sauce, meatball – but they are not short on flavor.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground venison (or not, I ground it in the course of this recipe)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp red curry paste
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce (or for something extra special some Bluegrass Soy Sauce)
  • a couple drops of fish sauce
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1/4 c almond flour
  • 1 tbsp dried Thai basil
  • handful of fresh cilantro chopped
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Directions

  1. Preheat the over to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mix together all ingredients except the almond flour, if using unground meat chop meat into 1″ cubes and thoroughly mix them with the other ingredients, grind all twice through a fine plate.
  3. Add in almond flour and mix thoroughly.
  4. Using your hands, form into 1 ounce meat balls and placed on the previously lined baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes and then turn the broiler on high for a minute or so to brown the meatballs.
  6. Serve hot.

Just another in a list of venison recipes, but something different.  If these are not spicy enough (they are not spicy) serve them with some Sriracha.
