Good Old Meatloaf

Meatloaf is one of those  good old fashioned comfort foods that always goes down well, especially with my meat loving partner. I usually make it with what is on hand in my pantry and herb garden. The only non negotiable is good quality prime beef which is not too fatty, We don't like a loaf that is swimming in its own grease.

Here is the meatloaf we have been eating lately, and it's a good one: easy, tasty and moist with a tangy topping. He insists on eating it with tomato sauce. I think it's nice just as it is with a small salad of pawpaw, cucumber, red pepper and lime juice.

IAMSAUCE contains soy, fresh ginger, honey and tamarind.



500 g prime mince
2 slices of white bread
A few sprigs of parsley
A few sprigs of oreganum
2 tbsp of IAMSAUCE
2 tbsp of sweet chilli sauce
1 tspn dijon mustard
1 egg
salt and freshly ground black pepper to season

In the food processor whizz the bread (torn into large pieces) with the herbs until it is reduced to fine crumbs.
Mix in a large bowl with the other ingredients. I like to squish it around with my hands.
Press the mixture into a smallish loaf tin (8cm by 16 cm )
Score the top with a fork.


1 tbsp of IAMSAUCE
1 tbsp of chilli sauce

Brush this over the loaf.

Bake for about 40 minutes in a moderate oven ( 180 degrees C)
