Some foods just simply taste better when cooked the ‘keto way’. And this meatloaf is certainly one of them. My family and I are huge meatloaf fans, so this was a must for our family. Especially since I’m the only keto-er in the house.
Be sure to let me know what you think.
What you’re gonna need
- 1 pound ground beef (I used 80/20)
- 1/3 cup grated Parmesan
- 1/3 cup low carb marinara (I used Rao’s)
- 1 teaspoon dried parsley
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 cup pork rinds. Crushed very fine.
- 1 egg (beaten)
- 1/4 cup crushed tomatoes
- 1/4 cup tomato paste
- Stevia to taste (I used 2 tablespoons and it was pretty sweet)
Let get started
- Pre heat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Add all ingredients in a large bowl. Get your hands dirty and mix that stuff up.
Once you mix all your ingredients up, it should look like this. Don’t let the pork rinds deter you. You can not taste them. They’re just a filler to help hold it all together.
2. Now that you’ve got it all mixed, place it on a non stick baking pan and form it into a loaf shape. Or you can put it in a meatloaf pan. Personally, I prefer to put it on a baking pan so I can remove the loaf and scrape the excess grease from around it.
3. Bake in the over for about 45 min. The time in the over is going to depend based on how thick you form your meatloaf.
4. While the meatloaf is cooking, you’re going to make your ketchup. This step is pretty simple. Just mix them all together in a bowl and set aside.
5. After your meatloaf has baked, it’s gonna come out looking pretty funky 😂 after all, it’s basically a loaf of hamburger. But it gets better. She’s a work in progress.
6. If you’re using a loaf pan, just spread your ketchup mix on top. If you’re using a flat oven pan, scrap the excess fat away from the outer part of the pan. And cover in ketchup mix.
7. Bake for about 10 more min. This is just to get the ketchup warmed. So, the amount of time is entirely up to you.
