Paleo Meatloaf

Posted by in Paleo, Recipes

Grass-fed ground beef from the Philadelphia CowShare

I’ve been using a lot of ground beef in my recipes lately.  It’s just one of those ingredients that you can make virtually anything with from hamburgers to meatballs, stuffed veggies, meat sauces, casseroles, and much more.  And I have to admit, there’s something incredibly satisfying about mixing all the ingredients by hand and creating something out of your mixture. For today’s recipe, I adapted a traditional meatloaf recipe to make it paleo.

For the paleo meatloaf, you will need:

– 3 lbs ground beef
– 1 cup almond meal
– 3 eggs
– 1 6 oz can tomato paste
– 1 large onion, diced
– 5 garlic cloves, minced
– 1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped
– 2 tablespoons dried oregano
– 2 tablespoons cumin
– sea salt and pepper to your liking
– optional: 1 finely chopped carrot or celery rib

Before the meatloaf went in the oven

To make the paleo meatloaf:

Preheat your oven to 350°F. In a bowl, mix together all ingredients with your hands.  Place the meat mixture into a large, glass baking dish and form your mixture into a loaf or whatever shape you would like.  Bake for 1 hour or until the meatloaf is cooked through the center.
