  • 1 1/4 lbs ground beef 85 to 90% lean
  • 1/2 medium onion grated
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese finely-grated
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons parsley minced fresh
  • 2 teaspoons Italian herb seasoning dried
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/3 cup no-sugar-added pizza sauce


  • Use your hands to mix together the ground meat, onion, almond flour, parmesan, egg, parsley, Italian herb seasoning, Worcestershire, salt, garlic powder, and black pepper in a large bowl.
  • Lay 2 sheets of aluminum foil down onto the counter. Shape the meat mixture into a loaf and place it in the center of the foil. Wrap the foil about 1 1/2 inches up around the sides of the meatloaf so it has its own little tray.
  • Place a metal trivet into the inner chamber of pressure cooker. Add 1 cup (240 ml) water. Place the meatloaf on top of the trivet.
  • Turn the pot on Manual, High Pressure for 25 minutes and then do a quick release.
  • Use tongs or potholders to carefully remove the meatloaf to a foil-lined baking tray.
  • Spread the pizza sauce on top of the meatloaf and broil until lightly browned.
  • Serve.
