I find bison a better alternative to beef, because bison are grass-fed and industry standards don’t allow the use of hormones or routine antibiotics, which are often given as growth promoters to cattle.
Meatballs are usually associated with spaghetti sauce, but this recipe takes them to another level, rich, hearty and satisfying.
My daughter eats just about everything, but she balked at the wine sauce, so here are two options to make it child friendly:
– Omit the brandy and replace 1 cup of wine with another cup of beef broth for a total of 2 cups of broth. It tastes much lighter. Some adults might prefer it this way too.
– Reserve some of the baked meatballs and serve them to children without the sauce.
My favorite way to serve this is with rice, but is also pairs nicely with roasted potatoes, or even noodles with poppy seeds in a goulash-like style.
