Almond Beef Bites

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.

  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.
