Meatloaf

2 Reviews
100% would make this recipe again

The chopped prunes and sautéed vegetables add a slightly sweet taste, which is well balanced by the addition of vinegar. The final result is a flavourful, moist, and firm meatloaf with a yummy crust. Leftovers make very tasty sandwiches.

Before you start

A food processor would make things easier to chop the vegetables and prunes.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 175°C/350°F. Lightly oil a baking dish or sheet.
  2. Prepare the vegetables: Finely chop the onion, garlic, carrot, and celery. Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat, then add the vegetables and sauté 5 min, with occasional stirring. Add a little salt, cover, then lower the heat. Cook 5 min.
  3. Take the pan off the heat, then add the Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, salt, pepper, and allspice. Finely chop the prunes and parsley. Add this mixture to the vegetables.
  4. In a large bowl, beat the eggs lightly, using a fork, then add the beef, bread crumbs, and milk. Mix well, then incorporate the vegetable mixture. Using your hands, blend the mixture together until it is just combined well (do not over-mix). In the prepared dish, form the mixture into a loaf, about 14-15 cm wide.
  5. Cook in the middle of the oven 1 h to 1 h 15 min until a thermometer inserted into the centre of the meatloaf registers 68°C/155°F. Let the meatloaf stand 5-10 min before slicing and serving.
