The latest thing I've experimented with is grass fed, pastured beef. This is a meatloaf I made with it. I snuck a ton of vegies in it (of course you could add more). It was really good!
Ingredients in my meatloaf:
1 10 ounce package of grass fed beef
1 large green pepper, chopped well
2 portobello mushroom caps, chopped well
1/2 vidalla onion, chopped well
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
1 egg (those pastured ones are really good!)
6 slices provolone cheese
thinly sliced ham
ketchup (1/4 cup for the meatloaf and 2 tbsp. for the topping)
worscesteshire sauce (a couple of dashes)
brown sugar (2 tablespoons)
apple cider vinegar (1 tablespoon)
Directions: Mix the first 6 ingredients well. Add 1/4 cup of ketchup and worcestshire sauce. Mix together and form into a rectangle on a piece of saran wrap. The rectangle should be about 1/2 inch thick.
Add provolone cheese to the top of the rectangle.
Mix the remaining 2 tbsp. of ketchp, brown sugar, and apple cider vinegar. Using a spoon, spoon it on top of the meatloaf. Bake it in a 350 degree oven for approx. 45-50 mins. Slice and serve. Steamed broccoli and sliced strawberries are wonderful sides!
