Easy Organic Meat Loaf

Easy Organic Meatloaf

Organic Grass-Fed Beef

We rarely eat meat at our house, but when we do we make sure that it’s organic, grass-fed beef.  It’s not only better for you, but it tastes much better too.  I find that I don’t need to drain off any excess fat when I cook organic beef, which is a huge plus when it comes to watching fat content.

Meat is usually just an accompaniment when we do eat it – an addition to pasta sauce,  casseroles, etc.  Every once in a great while though we like to have a little good old-fashioned comfort food, and nothing says comfort for us like a tasty meat loaf with some steak fries or mac and cheese on the side.  So here’s my own personal take on a classic.

Michelle’s Easy Herbed Meat Loaf

  • Approximately 2 pounds organic grass-fed ground beef
  • 2 cups fresh whole wheat bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup organic milk
  • 1/2 cup minced onion
  • 2 organic eggs
  • 2 tsp salt (or to taste if you prefer less salt)
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2 Tbs dried basil
  • 1 Tbs Herbes de Provence (you can find this in bottles at Whole Foods, or you can make your own from scratch)

In a large bowl mix together ground beef, bread crumbs, milk, onion, eggs, and spices.  Mix well.

Next, spoon mixture into a 9″ x 5″ loaf pan, making sure to level the top.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for approximately 1 1/2 hours.

Once meat loaf is done, let stand five minutes at room temperature, draining off any excess liquid.  Turn meat loaf out onto a serving plate if desired.
