    Primal meatloaf?

    Primal Fuel
    Hi, newbie here, tried a primal meatloaf recipe the other night which was pretty disappointing (I substituted coconut flour for regular wheat flour), very dry and a bit odd tasting. Anyone have an awesome meatloaf recipe that is tasty and sliceable (not crumbly)? Thanks!

    you don't need bread crumbs if you just do meat, eggs, and lots of dried herbs/spices. The dried herbs act as breading.

    agreed, I also used dried minced onions or shallots.

    Eggs and cheese work really well as binders for meatloaf - that is if you eat any cheese - here is a personal favorite recipe of mine:

    2 pounds ground beef
    4 ounces onion, chopped, 1 medium
    1 tablespoon coconut oil
    1/3 cup Ketchup or tomato sauce
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    2 eggs
    1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon pepper
    1 tablespoon No-Salt Seasoning or chili powder
    6 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded, 1 1/2 cups

    In a small skillet, sautÚ the onion in oil until caramelized. Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl. Line a 7x11" or 9x13" baking pan with nonstick foil. Put the meat mixture in the pan and shape into a loaf. Bake at 375║ for 40-50 minutes, or until a meat thermometer reads 140║.

    oooh...another to try this week! Never tried to make a meatloaf with cheese before! You can never have too many meatloaf recipes IMO.

    Wow, thanks everyone!

    Wow, thanks everyone!
    That recipe looks great, Otaku30, going to try it next! And yes, more dried herbs and eggs might have helped. Actually, kennelmom, the one I originally used was the one in Everyday Paleo, but I had the bright idea to substitute almond meal (which I didn't have on hand) with coconut flour....obviously not interchangeable!

    Well, it's not strictly primal, but I use the recipe on the back of the Lipton soup mix. It requires 2 eggs, 2 lbs ground meat (I use grass fed), 3/4 cup bread crumbs, 1/4 cup ketchup, 3/4 cup water and a pack of the soup mix. I think those are the right amounts but may be slightly off. I substitute almond flour for the bread crumbs and it actually tastes better than with bread crumbs. I have also used tomato paste instead of ketchup. Ketchup and the soup mix have about 40 grams total carbs but spread out over all the people that eat that in my house, that is a very minimal carb intake. At some point, trying to make something perfectly primal is kind of silly in my mind, a bit of ketchup spread out over four people eating is not going to have much impact on you.

    I also add liver that I put through the food processor. It helps to bind and gives the loaf a really nice smooth texture and depth of flavor.
