Easy Paleo Meatloaf￼
If you don’t know much about the paleo diet, meatloaf feels like the one thing you can eat—because, well, meat. But there are several ingredients in traditional meatloaf that aren’t paleo-friendly (looking at you, breadcrumbs), so we rejiggered our classic meatloaf recipe, adapting it to become paleo friendly.
- Cooking spray
- 2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tsp. dried oregano
- Kosher salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 2 lb. ground beef
- 1/2 c. almond flour
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tbsp. coconut aminos, divided
- 1/4 c. tomato paste
- 2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp. mustard powder
- Pinch cayenne pepper
- Preheat oven to 350°. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper and grease with cooking spray. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add onion and garlic and cook until soft, 5 minutes. Season with oregano and salt and pepper. Let cool slightly.
- In a large bowl, mix together beef, almond flour, eggs, 1 tablespoon coconut aminos, and onion mixture and season with salt and pepper. Press beef mixture into prepared pan.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together tomato paste, vinegar, remaining 1 tablespoon coconut aminos, garlic powder, mustard powder, and cayenne. Season with salt and pepper.
