I have always liked meatloaf. But this is the first meatloaf I have made were the sauce is pretty good.
Previous tries were too thin or to much like pasta sauce. I think ground beef is the best flavor for meatloaf but if you want to lean it out a bit or make it a bit cheeper, then using a little turkey can help with that. Just so you know it is a little tricky to figure out when the loaf is cooked through since the tomato paste leaves things looking pink even when it is very cooked.
2 tbsp tomato paste
2 tbsp coconut aminos
Pre heat oven to 350ºF
Get out a large baking pan
In a large bowl combined meat, garlic, eggs, coconut aminos, tomato paste, and spices
I mash it with my hands
Dump it onto the baking pan
form a even loaf or mound
Place in oven for 30 minutes
With a fork whisk together tomato taste and coconut aminos to make the sauce
After the 30 minutes is up take loaf out and spread sauce on top
Put back in the oven for 30-45 minutes (should only take 30 but test)
The tomato paste will make the meatloaf look a little pink so don’t get tricked and over cook it
