Ingredients

400 grs grass fed ground beef cup crimini mushrooms

chopped cup yellow or white onions

finely chopped 5 cloves garlic

finely chopped 4 sprigs parsley

coarsely chopped 4 sprigs cilantro

coarsely chopped cup celery

chopped flax ground flax seeds soaked in water

1 tbsp chinese mint

finely chopped 1 tsp turmeric

½ tsp dried rosemary

½ tsp dried thyme

½ tsp oregano

½ tsp chili flakes

1 tbsp dijon mustard

2 tbsp tamari

1 tbsp olive oil

Directions

In a sauteing or cast iron pan heat the olive oil. Saute the garlic, onions and celery for about 3 minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook for another 2 minutes. You want to keep the celery crunchy. In a separate bowl, add all the rest of the ingredients and the sautéed veggies. Mix well. The soaked flax seeds will also help the ingredients to stick together, somewhat like and egg will do. What happens, is that you not only want to add the fiber and fatty acids of the flax, but for health purposes, you don't want to combine two different proteins like eggs and beef in the same dish.Place the mixed herbs, veggies and beef in a baking pan, and cook in the oven at 350 F for about 20 minutes, or until cooked but still juicy. Serve with some wilted spinach or radishoots like I did. SALUD!

Meatloaf Shopping Tip

Most cattle are fed a diet of grass until they are sent to a feedlot – where they are finished on corn. When possible, choose beef from cattle that are “100% grass fed” - it will be more expensive, but better for your health.

Meatloaf Cooking Tip

The method used to cook beef is dependent on the cut. Cuts that are more tender, like filet mignon, should be cooked for a relatively short amount of time over high heat by grilling or sautéing. While less tender cuts, like brisket and short ribs, should be cooked for a longer time with lower heat by braising or stewing.
