My wife Denise asked me to make her some ‘comfort food’. So meat loaf it was for dinner. I used flax seed meal and walnut flour as a substitute for bread crumbs. There was a lot ‘juice’ after the loaf was cooked, so I put it in a small pot, added some white wine and whipping cream and reduced it all to make a kick-ass gravy.
- 2lbs Lean Ground Beef
- 2 med Onions (minced)
- 1tbsp Garlic (chopped)
- 2 tbsp oil (I prefer my homemade Ghee)
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 Cup Flax Meal
- 1/3 Cup Walnut Flour
- 1 tbsp Fresh Thyme (minced)
- 1 tbsp Dried Oregano
- Salt & Pepper to Taste
- 1/4 Cup White Wine
- 1/4 Cup Whipping Cream
- 2 tbsp Soya Sauce (organic naturally fermented and wheat free)
Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees.
Fry the onions and garlic in the oil until translucent.
Toss all of the ingredients into a bowl and dig in there with your hands.
Mix it all up until you think you have everything distributed evenly.
place the meat mixture into a bread pan or mound it onto a cookie sheet.
Place it in the oven on the middle rack for about 30 minutes.
Turn down the heat to 325 degrees and cook another 30 minutes.
Remove from oven and let stand for 10 minutes…this lets the loaf absorb some of the “juice” back into it.
Pour the “juice” into a small pot.
Add the wine, cream and soya sauce.
place on a med-high burner and reduce by half.
