Growing up when Mama made meatloaf it had an egg in it as a binder. So, trying to make a meatloaf when we had to cut out eggs was a hassle. Always came out hard and mega greasy.. at the same time… how does that happen, right?! 🙂
Well, I think a magical kitchen fairy came and sprinkled me with some “skill dust” because I managed to come into my kitchen and prepare a meatloaf that far exceeded any of my expectations. I can’t get all snooty and say I have the best meatloaf out there, but this is one tasty eggless loaf. It has a very nice texture too! Yes, there was still juices left over like before, but this time I didn’t fret. I made an amazing gravy to go along with the dinner. And because I was cooking with good quality beef, the gravy was not something to run and hide from. It’s filled with tons of good fat, yummy broth, and a delicious protein packed flour!
Thanks for stopping by my blog and showing some respect to my recipes:) Feel free to leave a comment or two, and maybe even tell me about a time you had a magical kitchen fairy visit you and what yumminess you prepared because of it!
Paleo Allergy-Free Meatloaf Serves 4 1 lb grass-fed beef (I used 75% lean so I had juices left for gravy) 2 T coconut flour 1/4 c tomato sauce + 2 T for topping 1/2 t pure maple syrup 1 T ground flax seed + 3 T coconut milk 1/2 small onion- chopped 1/4 t oregano 1/4 t basil 1/4t garlic powder 1/4t thyme Instructions: preheat oven to 350 Mix your flax meal and coconut milk and set aside for 5 min. Mix your beef, onion, tomato sauce (1/4c), and spices with your hands or a fork. After flax mixture has set, add it and your coconut flour to your beef mixture and form into a loaf. I cooked mine in a medium-sized loaf pan. I didn't press it in- just set your molded loaf intothe pan to cook. Top with the additional 2T tomato sauce. Then drizzle with maple. Rub all over top if ya want or leave as is. Bake for 45 minutes- or until beef is cooked thoroughly. Save juices after loaf is done. Paleo Gravy Juices from meatloaf - mine rendered about 1/4c fat and 1/4c broth 1 T coconut flour Instructions: Heat juices and fat in a small sauce pan over medium high heat- not to a boil. Stir in flour and whisk. Remove from heat and whisk until all ingredients are combined and form gravy. Pour over loaf or serve in side dish for mashed potatoes.
- Easy peasy 🙂
