Meat Loaf

Leave a comment

Meat in the shape of a loaf had fascinated me for a long time. Tried it in a bundt pan sometime back, forgetting that meat shrinks when cooked and I got a broken ring. This time out, tried it in a loaf pan, and turned out just about okay. Whatever the shape, the taste is the same, awesome!

Minced beef – 1/2 kg
Onion – 1 large, chopped fine
Garlic – 4 clooves, minced fine
Mushroom – 1 cup , cut into 1/2″ pieces
Worcestershire Sauce – 1 tbsp
Pepper – freshly ground – 1 tsp
Tomato ketchup – 1/2 cup
Steak Sauce – 1/2 cup
Bacon / Salami – to cover the meat loaf
Breadcrumbs – from 3-4 slices
Egg – 1, lightly beaten
Butter / Oil – 1 tbsp

Heat butter / oil in a non-stick pan (this limits the use of oil). Add chopped garlic and fry till it turns brown and you get a nice smell.
Add onion, suate` till it turns slightly brown
Add the worcestershire sauce, mix well
After 2 minutes, add the mushrooms. Saute` for 3-4 minutes
Add minced beef and saute` till it starts turning brown.
Take off from stove, cool
Add the lightly beaten egg, breadcrumbs and mix well
Tightly pack the mixture into a loaf pan
Mix the tomato ketchup and steak sauce
Pour half the sauce over the mix in the loaf pan
Cover with bacon / salami pieces
Pour the remaining sauce mix over this
Cover with aluminium foil
Bake in a preheated oven at 200C for 50 – 6 minutes

Note: You can use mutton mince instead of beef
