  • Dip each meatloaf slice into the egg mixture; shake off any excess. Then coat in the flour mixture; again, shake off the excess. Place on a wire rack.

  • Fill a large cast-iron skillet with 1/4 inch of coconut oil. Heat over medium heat until the oil reaches 325 degrees F. Add the dredged meatloaf; cook until golden brown on both sides, about 4 minutes per side. Drain on a wire rack and let cool.

Green Tomato Jam:
  • Add the green tomatoes and garlic to a food processor. Blend to a paste, then transfer to a medium saucepan along with the sugar, rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, cardamom and ginger. Stir to combine. Cook over medium-low heat until the mixture begins to look thick and glossy, about 35 minutes; stir frequently with a heat-resistant spatula to keep the jam from scorching on the bottom. Remove from the heat and let cool. Store, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
