Today i’m going to show you how to make meatloaf.This is a really classic dish and it’s very simple to make..
- Some ground beef
- Sweet onion
- Some sauce
- Some mustard
- Some garlic powder
- Ground pepper
- Some bread slices
- Some ketchup
- Some barbecue sauce
- Mashed potato
1So let’s get started, you need some ground beef that’s been sitting at room temperature for about an hour and this is an 80/20 percent fat ratio. I also have a finely minced sweet onion. some wishes your sauce. some prepared mustard .some garlic powder, ground pepper and salt.
2This is some bread slices that I’ve cut into small cubes. some ketchup. some barbecue sauce. Milk at room temperature, an egg and some additional ketchup. So the first thing that we’re going to do is take the room temperature milk and pour that right over these bread cubes.
3We’re just going to let this sit for a few minutes so that the bread can kind of absorb that I’m just going to toss that around a little bit and now I’m going to mix together some of the seasonings. So I have this little bit of ketchup here and I’m going to take the onion and put that in.
4Along with the wishes share sauce I can never pronounce this the same two times wishes share wish a shire Wurst er sauce and then this is the prepared mustard and then the salt pepper and garlic powder and then you’re just going to whisk this together with a fork.
5Just to get it all combined because I don’t want to just kind of dump it in there and have one area where there’s a whole bunch of garlic powder and another area where there’s not and then take that egg and then you just want to whisk that together.
6And then over here to our bowl with our meat and I’m just going to take the ketchup with the onion mixture and I’m going to pour that right on in and then in with our breadcrumb mixture and then throw in your egg and then you’re going to get your hands in there and kind of toss this around.
7So just lightly until everything gets really thoroughly combined. you have a baking sheet here that I’ve lined with some parchment paper and I just put the parchment paper on there. so that this doesn’t stick to just get the meatloaf out onto the parchment and then shape that into a nice loaf. you see I didn’t pack it too tight.
8And now I have that little bit of ketchup and barbecue sauce. so we’re just going to mix these together. Now when I was a kid my mom always used ketchup but I like to kind of jazz it up a little bit with a little bit of the barbecue sauce and then just pour this right over the top and just kind of spread it out nice and evenly.
9And it’s as simple as that.That’s it it’s ready to go into my oven 350 degrees for about an hour to an hour and 15 minutes or until it reaches an internal temperature of about 160 degrees and then you want to take it out and let it rest for about 10 minutes before you slice into it if you try to slice into it when it’s very hot it might crumble a little bit .
10So you just want to let it sit on the baking sheet for about 10 minutes and then I’ll show you what it looks like. There it is it cooked for about an hour it’s nice and crisp on the outside with that nice moist top and it’s moist and tender on the inside and it’s great with mashed potatoes.
