Easy Traditional Meat Loaf

Since we were kids, my mom used to make us this meat loaf which we all used to love, and still do. I just added additional ingredient to it, the steak or Worcestershire sauce, and also found that using a glaze at the end gives it nice shine and adds to its taste.

Ingredients

  • 500gm ground beef

  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten

  • 1/4 tsp vinegar

  • 5 tbsp butter, melted

  • 4 tbsp tomato puree (or ketchup)

  • 4 tbsp parsley, chopped

  • 1 onion, grated

  • 3 cloves garlic, grated

  • 1 1/3 cup oatmeal

  • 1 cup water

  • 3 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce

  • 4 tbsp steak sauce

  • 1 ½ tsp salt,1 tsp allspice, ½ tsp cinnamon, ½ tsp pepper

  • Glaze:

  • 1/2 cup ketchup+ 1 teaspoon Tabasco+ 1/2 tsp ground coriander+ 1/4 cup cider vinegar+ 3tbsp packed light brown sugar

Method

  • 1.

    In a bowl, mix Oat meal with water. Set aside for 5minutes.

  • 2.

    Meanwhile, in another bowl mix all other ingredients. Stir well.

  • 3.

    Add oatmeal mix and stir well to combine. Transfer to greased baking pan (loaf shape, but can use any shape you want).

  • 4.

    Bake in preheated oven, 350F (180C), for about 45-50minute.

  • 5.

    Mix glaze ingredients in sauce pan. Bring to boil. Pour half of the glaze over the loaf& run under broiler till glaze is bubbling and brown.

  • 6.

    Let it set for 10 minutes before slicing and serving. Serve with herbed mashed potatoes and rest of the glaze or beef gravy.

Notes

If the meat mixture is very wet, just add some bread crumbs, cause the moist texture of the meat differs from time to time, and so, would affect the whole mix texture.
Can add some grated carrots, finely diced bell pepper or celery leaves to the meat mixture. Or you can add some cheddar cheese as well.
