Another success–new, improved meatloaf

We’ve not been overly excited about meat loaf for several years. “Not bad, but just not great” has been my standard response. Last night I decided to do what I’ve been doing with other meals lately—taking parts of different recipes and combining them into my own creation. I think this one is a another winner!

2# ground beef (grass fed is definitely best)
1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 or 3 cloves garlic, minced
1 carrot, finely chopped
1 stalk celery, finely chopped
3-4 Tbsp butter
¼ tsp dried chili flakes
1 tsp dried thyme
generous sprinkling of ground pepper
salt to taste
1 ½ c bread, cubed (could also be bread crumbs)
1 c buttermilk or cream (I combined the two for 1 cup total)
2 eggs
up to 1 Tbsp fish sauce

Put it together:

1. Prepare meat loaf pan(s), lightly greasing with coconut oil.
2. Soak bread cubes in buttermilk/cream.
3. Saute onions, garlic, carrots and celery in butter until soft; stir in dry seasonings.
4. Combine meat, eggs, sautéed veggies and soaked bread. Mix well, then pack into loaf pan(s). Spread ketchup on top if you like.
5. Bake at 350F about an hour and a half.

Nice texture, delicious tasting!
