Meat Love

One of our family's favorite recipes is meat love. Not to be confused with typical meat loaf, as this is 100 times better, my meat love (as named by our oldest daughter) is wonderfully juicy and flavorful, and goes perfectly with best ever green beans (see Monday, May 24th's post for the recipe). A recent dinner guest requested this recipe, so I thought it best to share with everyone, enjoy!

Meat Love

2 tsp vegetable oil
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
1/4 cup milk
1 cup fresh white bread crumbs*
1 cup ketchup
4 tsp worcestershire sauce
1 lb ground bison or organic lean ground beef
8 oz kielbasa sausage without casings
1 egg, lightly beaten

heat oil in a medium skillet over medhigh heat and add onion, cooking until tender, 5 to 7 minutes then transfer to a large bowl

combine milk and bread crumbs in a small bowl and set aside
combine ketchup and worcestershire sauce in small bowl and set aside

add ground beef, sausage, egg, bread crumb mixture, and 1/3 of the ketchup mixture into the bowl with the onions and mix until just incorporated (over-handling the meat will toughen it)
bake in a loaf pan at 350 degrees for 45 minutes

remove from the oven, pour off some of the fat, and spread the remaining ketchup mixture over the top, and bake for 30 minutes more
let set 15 minutes before serving

*to make fresh bread crumbs, place some crustless white bead in the food processor and pulse until crumbled. You can store any leftovers in a ziplock bag in the freezer and pull them out as needed!
