    Ground Bison Meat, 1 lb
    Garlic, 2 cloves chopped
    Pepper, black, 1/4 tsp
    Parsley, dried, 1 tbsp

    Tomato Sauce, 2 - 8oz cans
    *Lipton Onion Mushroom Soup & Dip Mix (Dry Mix), 1 package

    Wild Blend Brown Rice- - 1 C dry, cooked according to package directions

    Optional: use 1/2 tsp. garlic salt instead of fresh garlic but it will raise sodium count (soup mix has enough!).


Cook wild rice according to package directions.

In a deep saucepan, mix 1 1/2 Cans of tomato sauce with 1 1/4 C. water and 1 package dry onion soup mix. Bring to a boil; simmer for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, add remaining 1/2 Can tomato sauce with the ground bison, garlic, pepper, and parsley. Mix well and shape into 16 meatballs. Gently place into hot sauce mixture and simmer gently for another 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Serve meatballs and sauce over rice.
1serving = 4 meatballs + sauce over 1/2 C. cooked rice.

  • Very Good
    Good! I made it in the crock pot and it worked great. I will definitely make it again - but next time I will be sure to use no-salt added tomato sauce - it was just a touch salty for my taste. - 1/25/11
