The steer is in the freezer and fall is upon us. That means it is time to turn back to our carnivorous ways- well, really our omnivore ways. One of my favorite ways to eat meat? Meatloaf!
I just have to retrain myself into thinking that the meatloaf is a side dish!
2 pounds ground beef (preferably grass fed)
3/4 C rolled oats
1/4 C chopped onion
1 beaten egg
salt and pepper
In another bowl:
1/2 C ketchup (homemade or at least no High Fructose Corn Syrup)
1/2 C BBQ sauce (see above)
1/3 C coconut sugar
1/4 C lemon juice
1 tsp dijon mustard
Mix 1/3 of the sauce into the meat. Form meat into loaves however you desire. My favorite way to make this is to shape the meat into several smaller loaves and place into a 9 x 13 pan to cook. It cooks a lot faster! Drizzle remaining sauce on top of the loaves. Cook at 375 degrees for 30 minutes. Check the meat and cook until no longer pink.
