Brown rice is the healthy killer filler in this refreshingly spicy meatloaf. Delicious served with a stir fry, and for sandwiches tomorrow.
2 cups cooked Ecogrown Missimati Bayou Bouquet Fragrant Brown Rice
1 pound lean ground beef
½ pound ground pork
½ cup ketchup
¾ cup sambal sauce (best homemade; recipe below. Commercial sauce will suffice)
1 large yellow onion, diced
2 tbsp garlic, minced
1 tbsp ginger, fresh minced
1 tbsp Thai basil
2 eggs, beaten
2 tbsp Worchester sauce
2 tbsp soy sauce
Have rice cooked to package instruction (3/4 cup dry rice and 1½ water makes about 2 cups).
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Combine ketchup and sambal sauce. Divide in half parts; set each aside.
In large mixing bowl, combine one of the sambal/ketchup blends with all other ingredients. Mix well. Line a standard 8½ by 4½ pan with parchment paper and fill with meatloaf ingredients. Bake for 50 minutes, or until done.
Remove parchment paper, slice, and serve with remaining sambal/ketchup mixture with a squeeze of lime. Enjoy!
