I am a HUGE fan of the crockpot. If I can toss dinner in there and go about my day, it's the best thing ever!
2 pounds ground chuck
1/2 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
3 cloves fresh garlic
1/2 cup pork rinds, ground fine in a food processor.
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 teaspoons pink Himalayan salt
2 teaspoons cracked black pepper
1/2 tablespoon cajun seasoning
2 sprigs fresh thyme
1 pound rainbow carrots, washed and peeled
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Pinch of fresh thyme
6 quart crock pot
2 tablespoons water
In a food processor, combine the kimchi, mayo, green onions, and garlic. Process until it becomes a smooth paste. In a bowl, mix the ground chuck, pork rinds, salt, pepper, and cajun seasoning together. Pour in the mayo and combine well. Tear off a piece of foil large enough to completely enclose the meat. Spray the foil with cooking spray, then center the meat and shape into a traditional meatloaf style. Place down in the crockpot and add the 2 tablespoons of water.
Slice the carrots into quarters, and place them in a separate piece of foil that you can also completely enclose them in. Place them in the middle, top with the butter, salt, thyme , and garlic powder.
Wrap and place on top of the meatloaf.
Cook on low for 8 hours.
Remove carefully with tongs. Top the meatloaf with the thyme and enjoy with the carrots!
