 Ingredients List

  • 4 small cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • ½ large or 1 small yellow onion, finely chopped
  • ½ cup finely chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 2 Tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 T Worcestershire sauce (see NOTES)
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • ¾ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • â…” cup almond meal
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1½ pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 3 to 4 hard-boiled eggs (see NOTES)
  • 2 Tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 teaspoons Ghee or olive oil


Begin by finely chopping garlic, onion and parsley. I cheated and used the food processor to save time. If you want to do the same, place garlic in first, process until finely chopped and then add onion.

Pulse until onion is finely chopped but not watery.

Remove onion and garlic to a large mixing bowl. Place parsley in food processor and process until finely chopped and you can measure ½ cup. Add to mixing bowl.

Add tomato paste, worcestershire sauce, paprika, oregano, salt, pepper, almond meal and beaten eggs into mixing bowl.

Mix until well combined and add in ground beef and pork

Use your hands to gently combine until spice mixture is just incorporated. You do not want to overwork the ground meat or it will be tough.

Take ½ of the ground meat mixture and place into a loaf pan (see NOTES for size). Press down until well packed and make a slight well in the center for the hard-boiled eggs.

Place hard-boiled eggs in well.

Cover with remaining ground meat mixture. Be sure to pat down well and make sure there are no air pockets.


Preheat oven to 350F. In a small bowl, combine ingredients for topping (tomato paste and ghee or oil).

Use your hands to evenly spread the topping over the meatloaf.
Place loaf pan on a baking sheet (so the meatloaf juices don”™t leak over and cause smoke in the oven) and put on the center rack in oven.

Bake undisturbed for 90 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool for at least 15 minutes. The meatloaf should have shrunk just a bit and pulled away from the sides. There may also be juices that overflowed onto the baking sheet and are still in the loaf pan.

Once meatloaf has cooled, use 2 sturdy spatulas to gently remove it to a cutting board. Slice, serve and Enjoy!
