Homemade Organic Beef and Pork Meatloaf

I have adapted this recipe from Alton Brown.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • 3/4 cup Homemade Organic Breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 tsp. organic freshly-ground peppercorn blend
  • 1 tsp. organic granulated garlic
  • 1/2 tsp. organic cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp. Homemade Organic Chili Powder`
  • 1 tsp. organic dried thyme
  • 1/2 organic yellow onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 organic carrot, peeled and broken
  • 3 whole cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1/2 organic red bell pepper
  • 1 lb. organic grass-fed ground chuck
  • 1 lb. organic pasture ground pork
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Real Salt
  • 1 organic pasture egg

For the Glaze:

Mix all glaze ingredients into a bowl until thoroughly blended.

Here’s How I do it:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 325° Fahrenheit.
  2. In a food processor bowl, combine breadcrumbs, Real Salt, black pepper, granulated garlic, cayenne pepper, chili powder, and thyme; Pulse until the mixture is of a fine texture and place this mixture into a large bowl.
  3. Combine the onion, carrot, garlic, and red pepper in the food processor bowl. Pulse until the mixture is finely chopped, but not pureed.
  4. Combine the vegetable mixture, ground beef, and ground pork with the bread crumb mixture.
  5. Season the meat mixture with salt.
  6. Add the egg and combine thoroughly, but avoid squeezing the meat.
  7. Pack this mixture into a 10-inch loaf pan to mold the shape of the meatloaf.
  8. Onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, turn the meatloaf out of the pan onto the center of the tray.
  9. Bake for 10 minutes.
  10. Spread the glaze all over the top of the meatloaf.
  11. Bake for 1-1/2 hours.
  12. Allow the meatloaf to rest for 5 minutes.
  13. Slice and enjoy!
