Almond Beef Bites


2012/03/29 by nikkiledford

Inspired by a work recipe, I decided to try my hand at some nut covered meat snacks… sounds appetizing, right?

Well, they are. They’re called Almond Beef Bites and they are an AMAZING on-the-go snack, SOOPer easy to make, and quite tasty.

Don’t be freaked out by the ingredients. Mayo and almond?! Sounds wierd, I know. But the mayonnaise is a great way to keep the meat moist.  If you want to be more advanced with your culinary skills, make your own mayonnaise like I did! It’s much healthier and WAY more delicious. You can also substitute chicken for beef and even coconut shreds for the almond for all the nut-allergy folk.

Almond Beef Bites

1 lb. Grass-fed beef  stew meat (easy because it already comes in chunks, you can also cut up your own chunks if you want.)
1 c. mayonnaise (my recipe)
1/4 c. spicy mustard
2 c. almond meal (from trader joes)
2 Tbsp. diced scallions
1 Tsp. salt and pepper
1 tsp. garlic powder

  1. In a bowl, mix together spicy mustard and mayonnaise.

    The Dip

  2. In another bowl, mix together almond meal, garlic, scallions, salt, and pepper.
  3. Preheat oven to 425 and line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  4. Take beef pieces and dip them into the mayonnaise mix to coat, then dredge in the almond mix to coat.

  5. Place all the coated pieces on the sheet pan and bake for 20-25 mins.

Stopped by @lazyacresmarket_encinitas and grabbed this tonic to keep my immune system solid while my little guy fights a cold. I'm not gonna lie, it doesn't taste that good, but has some crazy good ingredients and so far I'm keeping all the germs from taking me down 👊🏻 Not upset about my breakfast situation.
GF sourdough open faced breakfast sandwich and bone broth with all the immune boosting goodies. #goodonya #northcountysd #needonedowntown PREPARATION// One thing I never regret;
Taking time to meal prep for myself. It's so much easier to make healthy food choices and lose the stress over time spent in the kitchen when you're prepared! #mealpreppin #gingerorangepork #slowcookerftw If you didn't catch my live video yesterday about my grocery shopping (riveting... I know.), I gave the low down on why and how I make my own nut butter.
1. It's generally cheaper.
2. It tastes way better.
3. Easy to do in a vitamix or food processor. Just have patience because you're not making a smoothie, you're grinding nuts until they release their oils and smooth out.
Need another reason to make your own? 
4. Customization
This batch had a touch of vanilla and cinnamon and I can easily control the amount of saltiness.
You guyyyyysssss. It's so good and easy. Be like Nike and #justdoit
