Meatloaf Recipe (NDC)

For no particular reason, here is the recipe I've developed for
meatloaf. This is a meal that we don't have often, but I've been
working on creating the perfect meatloaf recipe intermittently for
years. The one I made yesterday is the best effort yet......

1 lb lean ground pork
1 lb ground buffalo
2 medium vidalia onions, chopped finely
1/2 cup dry sherry (amontillado)
1 tbl beef stock concentrate (liquid concentrated beef stock)
1 cup Italian-seasoned bread crumbs (I use Progresso brand)
6 tbl dried parsley
2 tbl Worcestershire sauce
1 tbl dry mustard powder
Heinz Chili Sauce for dipping

The beef stock concentrate is kind of an obscure item. Most grocery
stores will carry some variety of it. I've gotten it in small bottles
(Ox brand) or in jars (Superior Touch "Better Than Bouillon" Beef
Base).

To make meatloaf, put the pork and buffalo in a large mixing bowl. Add
the onions, parsley and bread crumbs. Measure the sherry in a
measuring cup, and dissolve the beef stock concentrate in the sherry.
(The directions on the stock concentrate say to dissolve in boiling
water--that's not necessary.) Add the Worcestershire sauce to the
sherry. Remove a few tablespoons of the mixture, and dissolve the dry
mustard in this small volume, then return the mustardy fluid to the
cup, and pour the entire volume over the top of the breadcrumbs.
Thoroughly mix the meatloaf--gotta use your hands for this. Shape into
an oblong loaf, and put in a roasting pan that has been sprayed with
Pam or lighly oiled with vegetable oil (I use a 13x9 inch pan for this
purpose, and the loaf is about 12 inches long and 4-5 inches across.)
Bake at 350 degrees for one hour, or until a quick-read thermometer
reads at least 165 degrees. Serves 4 hungry eaters.

I've been hoping to have a Memorial weekend BBQ, but it seems that if I
want to grill something, I may have to freeze my ass off to do
it.....Memorial Day was like this last year, too, IIRC.

We are in the middle of an extended nuclear winter here in the
Northeast, the weather systems pass to our south and backdoor us,
literally and figuratively, giving us cold, damp low clouds off the
Atlantic, made worse by the peeks of warm sun. It's been this way for
3 fucking weeks. Make it stop.

Hey, it's 72 degrees here too, only you have to be above 2000 feet.
It's a damn shame the highest point in RI is only 800.

And speaking of the 3 time world champions, Troy Brown came back to the
Patriots today, so this is a good day indeed.

cooked over a charcoal fire after doing yard work while drinking a

The weather's fine here.

Oh, we also did a package of drumettes coated with "blue mountain"
dried

Next time :)

Yeah and while they primarily affect insect larvae, who knows what
added benefits those bt toxins might have against any intestinal

Looks good - I'm going to try the sherry and beef concentrate addition
next time we make one. We also throw in a packet of Mrs. Grass's Onion
Dip in addition to the onions from time to time. A quick question - no
egg? My meatloaf and meatballs don't seem to hold up as well without
an egg mixed in for binding and emulsification. However, if I can
avoid using it, I'd rather skip the egg.

Yeesh, I forgot to mention the eggs!! Two eggs!!!! Ya gotta have two
eggs for this to work!!!!! (One egg for each pound of ground meat is
the general rule.)

Mix the eggs in with the other wet ingredients before pouring over the
dry ingredients.

Yep, I bet that would be good. The Worcestershire sauce is a bit
redundant with the sherry, anyway.

But it bears repeating--I forgot to mention the eggs. It'll take two
eggs for this to work. Mix 'em in with the wet ingredients.

Cool. I'll look forward to it! I've been excited to cook lately
because all of the (perfectly legal) herbs I'm growing have been
kicking in with the nicer weather we've had in Ohio (though Ohio still

genovese basil, sweet basil, thai basil, thyme, mint, and some of the
most flavorful Greek oregano I've ever cultivated. Lovin' it.

My personal feeling is that meatloaf needs to heavily seasoned like a
pate'/terrine which is what it really sort of is. I love burgers plain
off the grill. Nothing to get in the way of the meat but a bun. I am ok
with ketchup and onion as well (shuddup all you ketchup haters).
However,
I tend not to like burgers that go over the top with 30 different
toppings.
Meatloaf is another story. I like it very seasoned. Gimme garlic, gimme
onion, gimme herbs, etc. I picked up a terrine/pate' cookbook a while
back at our local library sale. It was a revelation to me how close
meatloaf is to a terrine. Well, it is a terrine, but most folks don't
assocaite the two as being the same idea.

Meatloaf ain't no frenchie terrine. The tofuist libruls make want you to
think it is, but it ain't. Freedom Loaf is as Amurican as filibusters.
Just grind up some cattle, mix in an egg and some salt, and Voila!

No, strike that. Voila is frenchie, too. As are filibusters. Damn, pussy
frenchies... trying to take away our Amurica. Just throw the cattle on the
grill, turn, chomp. yeah.

<laughing> I never thought of it in nationalistic terms, and I don't
care for the French except for a few close friends :) Let's hope the
word does not get out! Meatloaf = francophiliac! Well, at least we
don't
adopt French thiniing when it comes to the *gravy* for our meatloaf!
Oh... wait, we do.

4? 1/2lb each? Yow, those are 4 big hungry eaters.

Interesting recipe, may try it sometime.
Nothing like meatloaf to hide the gamey taste of grass fed beef for us.
We use "Nanna's Meatleaf" which, like all her recipes, have no
measurements. Some of this, some of that, scrape out the eggshells
with your fingers, smash it all together using your hands. Cook it for
a while. Must be served with baked potatoes and green beans.

'Gamey taste'? Where I grew up we called that 'flavor,' and it goes
well in cheese burgers, burritos, enchiladas, spaghetti, goulash...

reads at least 165 degrees. Serves 4 hungry eaters.
4? 1/2lb each? Yow, those are 4 big hungry eaters.
Interesting recipe, may try it sometime.
Nothing like meatloaf to hide the gamey taste of grass fed beef for us.
We use "Nanna's Meatleaf" which, like all her recipes, have no
measurements. Some of this, some of that, scrape out the eggshells
with your fingers, smash it all together using your hands. Cook it for
a while. Must be served with baked potatoes and green beans.
You misspelled "mashed potatoes and corn"...

No, no, no! Must have mashed potatos with meatloaf! And canned Green
Giant niblets corn instead of green beans.

i got one for a cajun meat loaf that is my favorite...if you want it
...let me know
Post by Neil X.
For no particular reason, here is the recipe I've developed for
meatloaf. This is a meal that we don't have often, but I've been
working on creating the perfect meatloaf recipe intermittently for
years. The one I made yesterday is the best effort yet......
1 lb lean ground pork
1 lb ground buffalo
2 medium vidalia onions, chopped finely
1/2 cup dry sherry (amontillado)
1 tbl beef stock concentrate (liquid concentrated beef stock)
1 cup Italian-seasoned bread crumbs (I use Progresso brand)
6 tbl dried parsley
2 tbl Worcestershire sauce
1 tbl dry mustard powder
Heinz Chili Sauce for dipping
The beef stock concentrate is kind of an obscure item. Most grocery
stores will carry some variety of it. I've gotten it in small bottles
(Ox brand) or in jars (Superior Touch "Better Than Bouillon" Beef
Base).
To make meatloaf, put the pork and buffalo in a large mixing bowl. Add
the onions, parsley and bread crumbs. Measure the sherry in a
measuring cup, and dissolve the beef stock concentrate in the sherry.
(The directions on the stock concentrate say to dissolve in boiling
water--that's not necessary.) Add the Worcestershire sauce to the
sherry. Remove a few tablespoons of the mixture, and dissolve the dry
mustard in this small volume, then return the mustardy fluid to the
cup, and pour the entire volume over the top of the breadcrumbs.
Thoroughly mix the meatloaf--gotta use your hands for this. Shape into
an oblong loaf, and put in a roasting pan that has been sprayed with
Pam or lighly oiled with vegetable oil (I use a 13x9 inch pan for this
purpose, and the loaf is about 12 inches long and 4-5 inches across.)
Bake at 350 degrees for one hour, or until a quick-read thermometer
reads at least 165 degrees. Serves 4 hungry eaters.

I've tried dressing meatloaf up a few different ways over the years, but
always end up back at my mother's "recipe" -- i.e. all ingredients are
eyeballed and added according to personal taste (and relative to the
amount of meat used):

ground chuck
onion
unseasonsed breadcrumbs (Progresso, of course)
eggs
garlic powder
salt
pepper

My sister adds ketchup to the mix, but I've never liked tomatoe-y stuff
in my meatloaf. I'm also vehemently opposed to mushrooms being mixed in
(you're supposed to treat fungus, not eat it).

For me, meatloaf w/lumpy, buttery mashed potatoes and corn is the
ultimate in comfort food. It's even good a day or two later straight
from the fridge, sandwiched with a thick slice of Velveeta between two
slices of dark rye or pumpernickel.


~Ted (who wishes he had the ingredients handy to make some right now)


P.S. Deli King (Harvard Ave, Allston) used to make a decent meatloaf
dinner. If any locals still miss the cafeteria-style fare at Deli King,
take heart... They never really closed. They relocated to Rte 38 in
Tewsbury (I go there occasionally for Sunday breakfast)

Well, besides the fact that we've never met, I just thought of another
reason we never went to shows together. ;-)

Let's see...

If the meat is not organic, it's been fed Monsanto GMO corn. The eggs, if
they're not organic, come from a chicken at the Abu Ghraib chicken
farm...where their feet never touch the earth and they're fed antibiotics.

IOW, eat meatloaf, and die. Just like the rats and butterflies who eat GMO
corn.

Eat up, America.

I'm not lecturing; in fact, I'm urging YOU to eat meatloaf.

Eat GMOs, drink polluted water and make war on innocent cows, chickens
and Iraqis. It's the American way.

Would you like poison for desert? Coming right up...

He's just an american boy & he loves his machine. No back-talk from a
machine. When was the last time a television set--gave you shit about who
you met last night? No back-talk machine. If your motor doesn't turn over
smooth for you, you don't feed it right.
Give it a little grease--give it a little gas, drive
straight on through the night. Man-made
mechanical mover--love your machine. You say
nothing's right but natural things--
you fool.
Poison oak is a natural plant why don't you
put some in your food.
I don't care if there's chemicals in it
s long as my lettuce is crisp!
Preservatives might just be preserving you,
I think that's something you missed!
Ya you missed it.
Man-made mechanical mover, I love his machine.
He's just an american boy & I love his machine.
Smooth moving steel.
Keep your engine warm & wet
be friendly to your steel.
Feed it right, your mechanical pet
then get behind the wheel.
Put a little statch in the old corvette
then give it a feel.
Smooth moving steel--give it a feel
man-made mechanical mover--it'll move faster than
you can--vegetable lover.

Clowns are creepy, not amusing.
