Teriyaki Meatloaf

Having discovered that my fussy child will eat meatloaf, I have been trying to expand the number of recipes I can cook from. He doesn’t like this as much as the Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf but he will eat it, and the rest of us think its pretty tasty. 

Teriyaki Meatloaf

800g / 2 lb Lean ground beef


2 Eggs; lightly beaten


1/2 c Bread crumbs


1/2 c Green bell pepper; chopped


1 lg Onion; chopped


2 Carrots; grated


2 Cloves garlic; crushed


2 tb Soy sauce
2

2 tb Brown sugar


2 tb Lemon juice


2 tb Fresh parsley, chopped 

3/4 ts Ground ginger

1/2 c Brown sugar


1/2 c Soy sauce



Combine all but last 2 ingredients. Form into 1 or 2 loaves and place in a baking dish. Bake at 350F/180C for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and drain off grease. Mix together the brown sugar and soy sauce and pour over meat. Bake for 30 more minutes and remove meat to serving platter. Pour sauce over sliced meat loaf or serve separately.

Indian Koftas

I always run out of ideas for ground beef/mince and this is a more Asian style flavour but still relatively mild. You can bqq or pan fry …

750g / 1.5lbs ground beef/mince

1 small onion, grated

1 clove garlic, finely chopped

1 tablespoon tomato paste

juice of 1/2 lemon or lime

1 tablespoon plain flour

1/2 teaspoon each ground cumin, coriander, chilli powder  (if you don’t have all of these, just add the ones you do have)

pinch each nutmeg, ground cinnamon, ginger and cloves

 

Combine all ingredients and season with pepper.

Divide mixture into patties or shape as kebabs around a stick.

Refrigerate 1-2 hours if possible.

Grill, bbq or pan fry until cooked though and well browned.
