Preparing Meat Loaf

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 😉

    1. Ich hab ihn mal im Backofen gemacht hatte ihn da 55-65 min drinnen bei 200Grad Ober und Unterhitze, wobei das eindicken der Sauce so bisschen schwieriger zu kontrollieren ist daher immer wieder mal reinschauen und vielleicht mit nem saucenbinder oder Mehl die Sauce andicken
