Cast: PS: I didn't use Ragu this time I used Francisco rinaldi. I use them interchangeably when I'm making meatloaf. Use whatever jar sauce you like.
Before we start we will boil 2 of the eggs. When they are done, peel them and set aside. If you don't want eggs inside the meatloaf skip this step☺️
To the beef add some mojito. About 1 tbs
I like to use fresh bread when making meatloaf as well as meatballs. It makes the meat so tender. Yum☺️ so I'll be using my mini proc. to make it into breadcrumbs.
Yum. Fresh is best☺️ I added torn bread into my processor and pulsed it until the bread became coarse crumbs.
Put the breadcrumbs in a bowl. It will look like a lot(2 cups to be exact) Once blended it will disappear into the beef. To the crumbs add a little more than a 1/4 cup of water or milk. Let it soak.
Mix the breadcrumbs well until all is moistened and stays together when pressed. No worries, the meatloaf won't taste like bread but it is essential to this recipe.
To the crumbs add the third egg that wasn't boiled.
Continue with the garlic powder
The onion powder
The adobo powder
The sazon accent.
And the 1/2 tbs of Mojo. Mix it all well.
To the breadcrumbs add the ground beef
Mix it very well by hand
I'm mixing all the breadcrumbs together with the ground beef
All the crumbs have combined well with the beef
You will now need a pot in which you will add the meatloaf mixture. We will free-form the meatloaf. While free forming into a rectangle we will make an indentation lge enough to fit 2 hard boiled eggs
Let me show you how i covered the eggs in the space I made. If you chose not to add the boiled eggs freeform the meatloaf without it.
See how nice it looks. Just like a meatloaf.😉
Now in this step you can use any jar sauce you want. I like Francisco rinaldi.😊 I will pour it over my meatloaf
The whole meatloaf must be covered. If necessary add about 3 tbs of water if you find that the sauce is too thick(optional)
Once the meatloaf has been covered you will take the pot and set it on the stove over low heat. Cover the pot and cook it for 25-30 minutes
After the 30 minutes remove the cover. Take a spatula and gently slip it under the meatloaf to release it from the pan. Once you have gently released the meatloaf It should move around freely
Now it's time to dig in. Shut off the stove and let it stand for a few minutes so that it can set. Slice the meatloaf and enjoy with plenty of sauce
Serve this with a side of rice, salad or any green vegetable like broccoli. Nomnom☺️
