Brussels Sprouts and Zucchini

  • 2 cups Brussels sprouts chopped
  • 2 zucchinis (use a julienne peeler or potato peeler)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Directions

  1. In a bowl, mix together ground venison, chorizo and spices. Cover and place in refrigerator for 1-2 hours.

  2. In a stock pot, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add diced onion and garlic and sauté until translucent. Add all other ingredients and simmer covered on low heat for about an hour. Remove carrot and celery stalk and process sauce using an immersion blender or food processor. Process until smooth.

  3. Remove venison mixture from refrigerator and form small golf sized meatballs (18-20). Heat cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil and venison meatballs. Cook meatballs for about 5 minutes until browned on bottom. Turn meatballs over using a small spatula and cook for another 5 minutes. Turn heat to low and pour tomato sauce into pan covering meatballs. Continue to simmer for another 10 minutes or until meatballs are cooked thoroughly.

  4. During this time, heat a non-stick skillet to medium-high heat and add olive oil, Brussels sprouts and zucchini. Sauté until tender. Add a little sea salt, pepper and fresh chopped basil. Remove from heat.
