Cavegirl Paleo Meatloaf (gluten-free/grain-free)

One of Cavegirl Cuisine’s popular recipes, this paleo meatloaf will be a hit with the entire family.  Ground beef is something I generally keep in my freezer because of its versatility and fairly cheap price point. This is also a great recipe to use up any veggies still in your refrigerator. Chop up those leftover mushrooms or grate up that lone carrot sitting in your crisper. If you are feeling a little spicy, add a few dashes of Sriracha (try Nom Nom Paleo’s homemade version HERE). As with most recipes, experiment with refining ingredients to make this your family’s favorite meatloaf!

Cavegirl Paleo Meatloaf


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup organic tomato sauce
  • 1/3 cup almond flour/meal (homemade recipe is HERE)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1 shallot, finely diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground celery seed
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • a few twists of ground pepper
  • Sauce:
  • 1 tablespoon organic tomato sauce
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Grease an 8.5×11 baking dish. Mix all meatloaf ingredients (except for the sauce). Use your hands for best results. Form into a loaf on the baking dish. I like to free-form my meatloaf instead of cooking it in a loaf pan. The free-form allows for a larger crisp surface.
  3. Mix the sauce ingredients. Brush on the surface of the meatloaf (I learned this trick from my grandma).
  4. Bake uncovered for 45-60 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches between 160 degrees F (or preferred doneness).  Let rest for 30 minutes.
  5. Cut the paleo meatloaf into slices. Garnish with fresh parsley if desired.
  6. Enjoy!
