Grass Fed Beef Meatloaf

Ok, so I know that everyone and their mother has a meatloaf recipe and let’s be real~there really isn’t much to it.  It comes down to what you  like and that be it-period! Actually I used to make a killer meatloaf but it just contained so much “junk” like ketchup store bought mustard etc that I had to make it for our LEAP program- I found that the less ingredients made it easier, probably cheaper and absolutely healthier!!! Enjoy

Product Description

Grass Fed Beef Meatloaf
Save Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs grass fed beef
  • 2 pasture raised eggs
  • 1/4 cream
  • 1/3 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/8 cup cashew flour
  • 2 tbs “no sugar” added organic tomato paste
  • 3/4 cup organic yellow onion-diced
  • 1/4 cup organic butter
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp celtic sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp frehs cracked black pepper
  • Glaze:
  • 1/4 cup “no sugar” added organic tomato paste
  • 1/8 cup organic apple butter
  • 8 strips bacon

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. In a medium skillet over medium high heat add butter and onions (with a little sprinkle of S&P) and sauté for about 10 minutes. 
  3. Crush garlic and give it a good mince and add to your onions at the end of their cooking time.  You want to sauté garlic briefly and being careful not to burn it. 
  4. Remove from heat and add to a large mixing bowl. 
  5. Crack and whisk eggs in a separate bowl checking for any shell pieces. 
  6. Next, now pay attention to the level of difficulty: throw all the ingredients (minus the glaze ingredients obviously) in a bowl and combine~that’s it :). 
  7. The most important element here is to break up the meat and work in the ingredients GENTLY like taking care of a baby.  Overworked meat is like a bad relationship: you just don’t want it but you are committed up to a point…
  8. Finally arrange your meatloaf on a cookie sheet or shallow pyrex dish and prepare your glaze
  9. For the glaze:
  10. Combine both the tomato paste and apple butter in a bowl and pour over meatloaf. 
  11. Cover any exposed area with your “sauce” and then add your bacon. 
  12. When you are done your meatloaf will appear to be a “bacon” loaf-yum!!! put it in the oven for 1-1/2 hours remove and let sit under foil for about 25 minutes to rest-ahh
