Saute the onions and carrots together in the oil until the onions are soft but not browned, about five minutes.
In a bowl combine the beef, onion, carrots and all remaining ingredients (except the Paleo ketchup) and mix really well, you might need to get your hands in there!
Put the mixture in a loaf pan and spread it out evenly, then spread the Paleo Ketchup on top. (or use the optional Paleo Ketchup recipe in the post - simply mix all the ingredients together)
Put the loaf pan onto asheet pan (in case any juices come over the sides) and bake in your oven for about 1hr - 1hr 15 mins.
Depending on how high the fat content is in your ground beef, you might find that the meatloaf is swimming in fat when you take it out of the oven. This is normal and the meatloaf itself will not be too fatty as most of the fat will have rendered out during cooking.
Let it cool a little bit and remove from the loaf pan and put it on paper towels to absorb any excess fat, I think if you try and lift the meatloaf out when it's super hot and right out of the oven it may fall apart.
HOW TO MAKE THE GRAVY (OPTIONAL)
The gravy is best made with homemade beef broth or a good quality Paleo broth.
In a pan add the beef broth, coconut milk, and fish sauce.
Mix well and simmer on a medium heat for five minutes.
If you want to thicken your gravy you can use about 2-3 tablespoons of arrowroot mixed with about a tablespoon of cold water or cold beef broth.
Remove gravy from the heat and add the arrowroot mixture, stir really well then return to a low heat until the gravy thickens.
Sieve gravy to get any lumps out and season with salt and pepper to taste.
