As my first recipe post, I didn’t have to think twice about which recipe I wanted to feature. This recipe is amazing and I wish I could take the credit for it but you will have to thank Sarah at Everyday Paleo for that. ..see the original recipe here
I won over my boyfriend’s heart and stomach with this meatloaf…it’s that good. The only downside is that we usually polish off this meatloaf in 2 sittings tops…so be warned!!
1 diced red onion
2 lbs of grass fed ground beef
1 cup almond meal
1 can tomato paste*
1 tbsp crushed garlic
1/2 tbsp sea salt
2 tbsp dried basil**
1 tsp marjoram
cracked black pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients by hand in a large mixing bowl. Place meat mixture into a large glass baking pan and form into a loaf. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until meat is no longer pink in the middle.
* I use two cans of tomato paste. I save one can to spread over the top of the meatloaf during the last 10-15 minutes of cooking.
** I use about a 1/2 cup fresh, chopped basil
Tips: you can also add additional vegetables…some chopped mushrooms, bell peppers…you pretty much can’t go wrong.
