The first thing I did was dice enough yellow onion to make 1/3 cup.

Then I dumped the ground venison and ground pork into a large mixing bowl.

Now I added the diced onion, gluten free bread crumbs, large eggs, cocoa, salt and pepper to the meat in the bowl.

I mixed these ingredients well.  I used my hands to finish the mixing process.

Then I lined a 9″ x 5″ loaf pan with some tinfoil and sprayed it well with cooking spray.

I packed the meat mixture into the prepared loaf pan.

Then placed it in the preheated 350F oven for 20 minutes.

While the Venison Meatloaf cooked I prepared the sauce by pouring some salsa verde and bbq sauce into a small bowl.  Any gluten free bbq sauce works for the sauce.

I stirred the ingredients together well.

After 20 minutes I removed the meatloaf from the oven and covered it with most of the sauce.  I reserved about 1/2 cup of the sauce.

I returned the meatloaf to the oven for another 40 minutes.

The Venison Meatloaf will be ready after about 1 hour of cooking or when it reaches an internal temperature of 160F.

I let the meatloaf sit in the pan for about 5 minutes before using the tinfoil to lift it out onto a cutting board to slice.

If desired you could use some of the reserved sauce to top each slice when serving.  Add your favourite sides for a complete meal.

Enjoy every bite of this flavourful Venison Meatloaf.
