Buffalo Meatballs with Pistachio Nuts

September 26, 2022


1 pound ground buffalo meat or grass-fed lean beef

1 large egg, lightly beaten

1 clove garlic

3 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/3 cup chopped pistachio nuts

3 tablespoons potato (or rice) flour

2 tablespoons olive oil


Combine ground buffalo meat through cayenne in a bowl and mix together until ingredients are well mixed.  Form mixture into 12 balls about 1 1/2 inch in diameter.  Use your finger to hollow out a bit of the center and fill with about 1-teaspoon chopped pistachios.  Close and shape the meatballs, dredge in flour and let rest for about 5 minutes.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.  Add meatballs and cook, turning with tongs, until browned on all sides and firm to the touch, about 10 minutes.  Drain on a paper towel and serve warm.
