Instant Pot Hoisin Meatballs With Bison & Wild Boar

Instant Pot Hoisin Meatballs With Bison & Wild Boar

Meatballs have got to be one of the most versatile and convenient things that I make. They reheat well, can go on top of just about anything, and there’s endless possibilities when it comes to flavors, seasonings and sauces. These hoisin meatballs are the perfect sweet and savory combination of Asian flavors. Hoisin sauce, also known as Chinese barbecue sauce, is awesome for cooking (it also makes a delicious condiment). It’s wonderfully salty, slightly sweet and rich in flavor. A little bit goes a long way. It makes for a really tasty sauce for these bison and wild boar meatballs, and they’re incredibly quick to make using an Instant Pot. You can have these ready in less than 30 minutes from start to finish. Serve on top of rice, on their own, over noodles or any other way that strikes your fancy!

Instant Pot Hoisin Meatballs With Bison & Wild Boar - Beck & Bulow

Free Range Bison Raised On Our Beautiful Ranch


Our bison live free range on 10,000 beautiful acres here in New Mexico, or roam freely on our carefully selected partner ranches. They are pasture raised and never administered any amount of hormones, steroids or antibiotics. These are powerful, strong animals that live essentially wild with minimal handling. There were once 60 million bison roaming North America, and we hope to see their numbers increase back to even 1 million during our lifetime. By increasing the demand for ethically sourced bison meat, we can help to bolster their population. The more people that want to purchase this nourishing and nutrient dense meat, the more farmers will be encouraged to raise bison. This directly helps to increase the number of herds which assists in providing genetic diversity for the population.

A Delicious & Sustainable Meat Choice


Our Southwestern wild boar roam the forests, foraging their natural diet. They love to eat berries, nuts, roots and tubers which give their meat its unique and delectable flavor profile. They’re trapped under the supervision of specialized veterinarians and butchered by a small scale, species specific facility. Just like all of our products, we care about where this meat comes from. Wild boar are actually an invasive species to North America, and their population continues to grow. They ruin crops and disrupt the growth of endangered plants in forests by digging in the soil. When we eat humanely trapped wild boar meat it helps to protect our food supply and forest ecosystems.


Ingredients:



  • 1 cup bison bone broth
  • 3 tablespoons hoisin
  • 2 tablespoons coconut aminos
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • ½ small onion, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound ground bison
  • 1 pound ground wild boar
  • 4 green onions, sliced thin & toasted sesame seeds for garnish

Top 5 Recipes To Get You In The Mood For Halloween - Beck & Bulow

1. Homemade Calzones With Ground Bison


If you love homemade pizza, making homemade calzones should be next on your list. These delicious pockets of cheesy, meaty goodness will be a huge hit. You can make your own pizza dough if you prefer. Personally, I find that the freshly made versions at many grocery stores or pizza places are usually really good. Don’t forget the marinara sauce for dipping! These would be amazing with any of our ground meats. I chose bison this time, but any variety would be fantastic.


Ingredients:



  • 2 fresh pizza dough circles
  • 3 tablespoons bison tallow, divided (2 tablespoons need to be melted)
  • 2 pounds ground bison
  • 2 cans whole tomatoes, drained
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh oregano, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 16 oz shredded Italian blend cheese
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • Marinara sauce for serving

Instructions:



  1. Place 2 large baking sheets in the oven before preheating to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Leave the baking sheets in while the oven heats up.
  2. Lightly flour a surface to place the pizza dough on. Cover the dough with plastic wrap. Leave covered for approximately 20 minutes.
  3. Heat one tablespoon of bison tallow in a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ground bison to the skillet and cook just until brown. Use a wooden spoon to break up the meat into crumbles as it cooks. Take care not to overcook the bison meat.
  4. Stir the tomatoes into the meat, crushing them with the spoon as you do so. Add the minced garlic, basil, parsley, oregano, sea salt and freshly ground pepper to the skillet. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 8-10 minutes. Take the skillet off the heat and set aside.
  5. Slice each pizza dough round into 4 pieces. Roll each section into its own circle, using a lightly floured surface to work on.
  6. Spread the meat mixture equally inside each calzone. Add ½ cup shredded cheese on top of each.
  7. Make an egg wash by whisking together the egg and water. Brush around the edges of each circle of dough, then fold over in half, pressing the edges together with your fingers or a fork. Brush the tops of the calzones with 2 tablespoons of melted bison tallow.
  8. Place the calzones on 2 sheets of parchment paper. Carefully pull the hot pans out of the oven so they’re accessible. Carefully place the sheets of parchment paper with the unbaked calzone on each baking sheet.
  9. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 18-20 minutes, until they’re golden brown. Swap the positions of the pans halfway through baking so they spend equal time on the top rack.
  10. Let the calzones rest for five minutes before serving. Enjoy immediately with marinara sauce for dipping.

2. Southwestern Style Wild Boar Chili


There’s something so wildly satisfying about really great chili. If you’ve never tried our ground wild boar meat, now is the time because it really shines in this complexly flavored chili recipe. If this meal doesn’t make you feel like curling up with a cozy blanket, I don’t know what will. The bison bone broth and tallow make this chili rich and meaty, and the unsweetened baking chocolate is a secret ingredient that fills out the base of the flavor profile. The spices hit all the right notes - this recipe is easily my new favorite. I highly suggest making a big batch because everyone will be coming back for seconds!


Ingredients:



  • 3 tablespoons bison tallow
  • 3 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons ground oregano
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 1 tablespoon chipotle powder
  • 2 tablespoons ground coriander
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 6 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • ½ jalapeno, finely chopped
  • 3 pounds ground wild boar
  • Two 28oz cans organic crushed tomatoes
  • 4 cups bison bone broth
  • 2 tablespoons masa harina
  • 1 teaspoon coconut sugar
  • 1 square of unsweetened baking chocolate, chopped
  • Sour cream, chopped cilantro, lime wedges and shredded cheese for serving

Instructions:



  1. Heat the bison tallow in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add all of the powdered spices and dried oregano. Stir until the spices are activated and infusing into the tallow - they’ll become very fragrant. This should take approximately 1 minute.
  2. Add the garlic and onions to the pot. Stir to combine. Add in the jalapeno and cook for approximately 3 minutes, stirring frequently.
  3. Add the ground wild boar meat and cook until lightly browned. Then, add in the crushed tomatoes, bison bone broth, masa harina, coconut sugar and chopped baking chocolate. Stir to combine. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for approximately 45 minutes.
  4. Serve with dollops of sour cream, chopped cilantro and shredded cheese as desired. Enjoy!

3. Chilly Weather Bison Stew With Beer And Bone Broth


Now that the weather’s changing, I’m obsessed with cooking anything that makes me feel cozy and warm. There’s few things more autumnal than a hearty stew, and this one turns out well seasoned, flavorful and just the right thickness. Add one of your favorite beers for extra deliciousness. Our bison stew meat is something my freezer is always stocked with. Now that it’s getting chilly, we’ve been having trouble keeping it in stock. Everyone wants to make stew on these crisp October evenings! Serve with some local, freshly baked bread (homemade is even better) for a perfect meal.


Ingredients:



  • 3 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 1 tablespoon bison tallow
  • 2 pounds bison stew meat cubes
  • 1 whole onion, diced
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 bottle or can of good beer

  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 ½ teaspoons coconut sugar
  • 4 parsnips, chopped
  • 4 potatoes, cut into large chunks
  • Minced parsley for garnish

Instructions:



  1. Heat the avocado oil and bison tallow in a large pot over medium-high heat. Sear the stew meat cubes on all sides, setting aside on a separate plate. Cut the seared chunks into desired size.
  2. Place the onions into the pot. Cook, stirring frequently, until tender and fragrant. Add the garlic in and cook for approximately one minute.
  3. Add the beer and bison bone broth to the pot. Stir to combine, then add in the Worcestershire sauce, tomato paste, paprika, and coconut sugar. Season as desired with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  4. Add the seared bison stew meat cubes back into the pot. Give it a stir, cover and simmer for 1.5 to 2 hours. As the stew cooks, it should thicken some. If it becomes thicker than you desire, simply add water as needed.
  5. Add the parsnips and potatoes to the pot. Cook for approximately 30 more minutes, adding more water as needed. Season to taste.
  6. Serve garnished with parsley if desired. Delicious soaked up with some good crusty bread.

4. Instant Pot Taco Soup With Ground Elk


There’s few things easier than making a delicious soup in the Instant Pot. This taco soup is so delicious and the perfect variation on chili, one of my cold weather favorites. It’s like a fiesta in your mouth, and our ground elk meat makes it even better. It’s got such amazing flavor and tenderness, you definitely won’t be disappointed. However, you could easily make this with any of our ground selections. Our ground bison, lamb, beef, wild boar, or any of our Primal or Keto blends would all be great options.


Ingredients:



  • 1 ½ tablespoons avocado oil
  • 1 ½ pounds ground elk meat
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 medium to large onion, chopped
  • 3 large cloves of garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons taco seasoning of choice
  • 1 package of ranch dressing mix
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
  • 3 cups bison bone broth
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1 can tomato sauce
  • 1 can hatch green chiles
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 cup Mexican blend shredded cheese
  • Tortilla strips for garnish, if desired
  • Sour cream, chopped cilantro and avocado slices for serving

Instructions:



  1. Turn on the “Sauté” function for the Instant Pot and heat up the avocado oil. When it’s hot, add in the ground elk. Season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly to brown.
  2. Add the chopped onion to the Instant Pot. Cook for approximately 1-2 minutes.
  3. Add the garlic, ranch dressing packet and taco seasoning to the pot. Cook for another minute or two.
  4. Add both types of beans, bison bone broth, tomatoes, tomato sauce, and hatch green chiles to the pot. Stir with a wooden spoon, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom and combining. Turn off the Sauté function.
  5. Turn on the pressure cook function and select “High Pressure”. Set the timer for 20 minutes.
  6. When the soup has finished cooking, release the steam. When the lid releases, stir in the frozen corn and shredded cheese. Ensure that the frozen corn is warmed all the way through. Taste and season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper as desired.
  7. Serve and enjoy. Add tortilla strips, sour cream, cilantro and avocado slices as desired.

5. Halloween “Mummy” Pigs In A Blanket With Bison Hot Dogs


And last but certainly not least… Halloween pigs in a blanket. With trick-or-treating currently getting canceled for many Americans this year due to COVID-19 restrictions, many families are looking for ways to celebrate Halloween at home with their kids. A Halloween themed dinner can really make things feel festive and these pigs in a blanket are easy and fun to make. You could always make your own biscuit dough if you prefer, but using canned really takes me back to my childhood and makes this recipe incredibly simple to prepare. My personal favorite is the canned croissants or crescent roll dough. The hardest part is probably opening the pressurized can. Does anyone else get nervous doing that? But after all, it’s Halloween, so a little scare will only add to the fun.


Ingredients:



  • 8 bison hot dogs
  • 1 can of crescent rolls or approximately 8 oz of homemade biscuit dough
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • Mustard
  • Ketchup
  • Hot sauce and any other desired toppings for serving

Instructions:



  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare a baking sheet - lining with parchment paper is recommended.
  2. Unroll the canned crescent dough, or prepared biscuit dough. Cut the dough into the thinnest strips possible for mummy wrapping.
  3. Use a paper towel to gently pat the hot dogs dry. This will make a better surface for adhering the “mummy wraps”.
  4. Wrap the strips of dough around the hot dogs to look like a mummy’s bandages. Criss cross them and leave one end open for the “face”. Place them on the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Make an egg wash by whisking together the egg with the two tablespoons of water.
  6. Brush the egg wash onto the dough “bandages”.
  7. Bake for approximately 12-15 minutes, or until the dough is golden brown.
  8. Use ketchup and mustard to make eyes on the faces of the mummies. Serve immediately with desired condiments and enjoy!

Coq Au Vin (Chicken In Wine Sauce) In The Instant Pot

Coq au vin translates to “chicken in wine”, and is a French dish that sounds fancy but is actually quite easy to make. It’s even easier when you prepare it in an Instant Pot.

This delicious, tender chicken braised in a delectable wine sauce is the perfect thing for autumn evenings. You can make the entire thing in your Instant Pot, or if you don’t have one, simply do the searing on the stove in a skillet and the slow cooking in a covered pot simmering over low heat. It will, of course, take longer to cook this way, but is still pretty effortless.
