Are you one of those people who loves meatloaf? I am, and consider it one of the ultimate comfort foods. That may be because my favorite recipe comes from Martha Stewart and my Grandma, who topped it with a delicious ketchup glaze…oh mmm….
Makes me want a piece right now with some fluffy organic homemade mashed potatoes, and a glass of organic raw milk!
I’m so hungry I won’t waste any time in getting you this scrumptious recipe that your family is sure to love!
(Adapted from my own Grandmother’s recipe as well as the Martha Stewart recipe)
- 2 pounds organic grass fed beef
- 1 medium organic yellow onion, peeled and cut into quarters
- 2 cloves organic garlic
- 4 slices organic sprouted bread or 1 cup organic old fashioned oats
- 2 stalks organic celery, cut into several big pieces each (will be going in the food processor)
- 2 organic carrots, cut into several big pieces each (will be going in the food processor)
- 1 large organic free range egg, slightly beaten
- 1/2 cup organic ketchup
- 2 teaspoons organic dry mustard
- 1 tsp sea salt, such as Real Salt or Himalayan Salt
- 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
Ingredients For Grandma’s Glaze:
- 3/4 cup organic ketchup
- 1 teaspoon organic dry mustard
- 2 tbsp organic coconut sugar or Rapadura
Preheat oven to 375. If using the bread, process bread crumbs in a food processor and make fine bread crumbs. Then add to a bowl with your ground beef, but don’t mix in yet.
Pulse the carrots, onions, celery and garlic in a food processor and then add to the bowl with the ground beef and bread crumbs. Add egg, ketchup, salt, pepper, and mustard, and use your hands to combine well.
Shape the mixture into a “loaf” and place in two glass bread pans.
Cook for about 40-45 minutes at 375.
Meanwhile, prepare the glaze.
After the meatloaf has been in the oven about 40-45 minutes, add the glaze on top, turn up the oven to 400 degrees, and finish for another 10-15 minutes or so. (Note: organic grass fed beef cooks much more quickly than its conventional counterpart, so monitor your meatloaf with a thermometer while you’re getting a feel for how long it will take!) 🙂
Now, whip me up a batch of those organic mashed potatoes, steam me some organic carrots & peas, and I’ll be at your place for dinner tonight!
For your extraordinary health-
