Black Rice Curried Meatloaf

March/April 2008

Your rating: None Average: 4.3 (25 votes)

Meatloaf need not be boring or dry. This version is moist with cooked rice and plenty of vegetables. Curry powder gives extra flavor to the meatloaf and mango chutney spread on top stands in for the traditional ketchup topping.

"This was fabulous! Moist, flavorful, and unexpected, in a good way. I approximately halved the recipe (1 lb beef, 1 generous cup cooked black rice), but didn't change the veggie amounts, and it turned out wonderful. And healthy! "

Yum!

This was delicious! At least, I thought so. The flavors were a little much for my parents and Gramma, but they have very traditional tastes. I found the mango chutney at Fred Meyers in the condiments section. Don't skip it, since it MAKES this meatloaf. Serve it with the extra, optional amount, too. Mmm. It's a great recipe for using up some of those summer zucchini submarines you have growing out in the garden!

I really love this meatloaf. It's a very flexible recipe that is easily customized so everyone in the family is happy. I also find this is a great 'make ahead' recipe. I just put the loaf together and store in the fridge or freezer until I'm ready to cook it. The only down side is it tends to crumble when you try to cut it.

To speed up the prep time you can substitute bulgur for the rice. It cooks faster and still keeps the loaf nice and moist, plus you don't need to chop it up before adding it to the beef. You can also substitute most any hard, fleshy vegetable for the zucchini. I use whatever is cheapest at the store, such as summer squash or even sweet potato. Try topping it with General Tzo's sauce for a kick, or your favorite barbecue sauce for a sweeter flavor.
