Peel onion & chop finely. Also peel of 2 cloves garlic & chop finely. Next, heat up a pan adding a dash of oil & sweat onions and garlic over medium heat until glassy, stirring occasionally. Then remove from heat & allow to cool slightly.
…for the meat loaf:
In a large mixing bowl combine 700 grams ground meat along with the cooled onions, 2 eggs, 75 grams breadcrumbs, 1 heaping tablespoon mustard, 1 heaping teaspoon sweet paprika powder & a good pinch of salt & pepper & mix well with your hands.
Next, place the meat mixture on a kitchen board and shape it to a roast or loaf. Then heat up a large pan or pot adding a good dash of oil and gently roast the meatloaf over medium heat until brown & crispy for a few minutes.
Once the meat loaf is browned all around add 1 heaping tablespoon tomato paste to the pan, also deglaze everything with 150 milliliters red wine & 500 milliliters vegetable stock. Bring the sauce to a boil & then cook the meatloaf over low to medium heat & the lid closed for about 50 – 60 minutes until done.
After about 50 minutes lift the meat loaf out of the pan, slice up with a sharp knife & dish up along with sauce & mashed potatoes. Possibly garnish meatloaf with finely chopped parsley. I wish you lots of fun cooking 😉
