Stuffed Deer Leftover Meatloaf with  Homemade Paleo Ketchup (Paleo, Keto, Gluten-Free)

I have a friend who was gifted a bunch of legs of deer. He gave me a few. I was searching for recipes, deer is complicated to cook with because you have to know, the exact time, temperature, and what to add to aggregate moisture and more flavor because is lean meat and it cooks and dries more rapidly to others. and I made the whole leg in the oven, was very moist and savory, but was too much for us and I wondered, is there another form to eat the leftover?  it can be so good in a meatloaf form, and I did it with great result!.

First, of all, I did the Paleo Ketchup the day before so that I saved time. The taste of it is spectacular! It's better than any store-bought one, refined sugar-free, gluten-free, paleo, keto if you want to, clean of any gum or agglutinant, or preservative, super easy to make, and savory for itself.

Then I started cutting the meat and put it in my food processor with onions, garlic, white wine, oregano, cumin, red sweet bell pepper, black pepper, salt, and 3 raw eggs, to ground together.

Cook it on a large pot with a little oil, about 1-2 tablespoons at medium-high temperature until everything comes together. Let it cool down, then transfer to the fridge for about 1 hour, stir on the countertop over a large piece of parchment paper or inside a large pan to make a rectangle, put inside anything that you like, even medium-cooked eggs align in the middle, and with the help of the parchment paper warp it up to make a loaf, seal the border, now can fry it as it to eat like a slice of cool meat to eat with bread, salad, etc. or put into the pan taking off the paper put like half of cup of the homemade ketchup, bake for around 30 minutes until the cheese melts, then when hot, add a 1/2 cup more of the ketchup, wait like 10-15 minutes to eat it.

You could realize that instead of deer, you can make the same with any leftover meat that you have, it changes all, because you have a new dish that they never know is with the same meat, ha, ha. Your family will be glad that you did it., also you can use it directly from your refrigerator like cool meat to serve as an appetizer in your house, parties, etc. besides that you can make croquettes, meatballs or shred it make a good tomato sauce put inside, mashed potatoes or sweet potatoes a layer of the meat in the middle and the other layer of the mashed potatoes, mmm... what you think?

Let´s cook!.
