Blue Ribbon Meatloaf wins big!! The half of a red pepper added just enough sweetness and let's face it everyone loves garlic so I put in 4 gloves. Pros: My family and friends all asked for and took home this recipe.I added red pepper and garlic..Bonus.. Cons: Absolutely no cons..
Delicious The beer -onions added moisture and a gentle flavor. I reduced the thyme and divided the meat into 4 small loaves. Saved baking time (20 minutes in microwave 70% then 20 minutes in oven) Yummy!!! Pros: texture flavor portion Cons: little too much thyme
This is the most AMAZING meatloaf I have ever made. I really like the flavors - beer mustard spices - and the fact that it is not all ground beef. And leftovers are so very good in sandwiches (whole grain bread canola-oil mayo and fresh tomato for topping) - wow yummm!
Made this several times and it was always a big hit. Makes fantastic leftovers sandwiches. My only modification was to use red wine instead of the beer since I already had it and it still tasted great.
I didn't know meatloaf could taste this good! However I recommend cooking at a slightly lower temperature maybe 350. I took mine out 10 minutes early and the inside was done perfectly but the edges were a little bit overdone.
I made this recently and wrote about it on my blog Grabbing the Gusto. The beer-infused onions give richness (but not too much!) and added flavor to the meatloaf. No need for ketchup on this tasty dish.
