Pork Meatloaf with cabbage and apple

We love meatloaf. Like, a lot. I make a different version every time I cook it, I think. So here is the creation from this past Sunday!



1 lb. pork

1/2-3/4 c.  almond flour

1 apple, grated

1 small onion, diced

1/4 of a cabbage cut into strips

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 cup + 2 tbsp ketchup, separated (homemade or sugar-free, preferably!)

2 tbsp. brown mustard

2 tbsp. fresh herbs (I used parsley and dill)

1 egg

1-1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. pepper

Butter (I use Kerrygold)

Coconut oil


Heat oven to 350F. Place parchment paper on a baking sheet and rub coconut oil on it to prevent sticking. Saute onion and garlic in butter over medium heat until they smell amazing and the onion is somewhat translucent. Add in the grated apple and cabbage. Cook until the cabbage is somewhat wilted and the apple is cooked through, about 10 minutes. Put the onion, apple and cabbage mixture into a large bowl with the pork, almond flour, 1/4 cup ketchup, fresh herbs, egg, salt and pepper. Mix with your hands. Mold the mixture onto the baking sheet into a shallow loaf. Bake for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, mix the 2 tablespoons ketchup and brown mustard together. Use a basting brush to glaze the meatloaf at halfway point. Bake for another 25 more minutes. Take out of the oven, slice it up and enjoy!
