Title: AWW Rich Glazed Meatloaf
Post by: kezza on January 14, 2013, 08:51:38 am
AWW Rich Glazed Meatloaf
Serves 6

500g minced beef
250g sausage mince
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 small (80g) onion, chopped
1 stick celery, chopped
1 small (70g) carrot, chopped
1 tblspn chopped fresh parsley
1 tblspn tomato sauce
2 tspns worcestershire sauce
2 tspns Dijon mustard (I used my 'Thermofest Mustard')
1 cup (70g) stale breadcrumbs

GLAZE
1/2 cup (125ml) water
1/2 cup (125ml) tomato sauce
1/4 cup (60ml) worcestershire sauce
2 tblspns malt vinegar
1/4 cup (50g) firmly packed brown sugar
1 tspn instant coffee powder
30g butter
2 tblspns lemon juice

Place mince meat and sausage mince in bowl.  Blitz bread in tmx to breadcrumbs and add to bowl.
Place onion, celery, carrot and parsley in bowl and chop Speed 5 for a few seconds.  Add to bowl.
Add remaining ingredients and mix.  I placed in fridge for about 10 minutes while I made the glaze.

GLAZE
Rinse out tmx and put all ingredients for glaze in.
I cooked for 10mins Varoma temp speed 1.  This does not thicken, but does when cooking in oven.

Take mince mixture out of fridge and place on Silmat and shape into rectangular loaf measuring 25cm x 35cm.
Roll up from short end into a roll as in a Swiss roll.
Place in baking dish, with seam-side down. I used my bread scraper to pick it up and place in dish.

Bake uncovered 30 minutes in moderate oven.  Discard excess fat and then pour over glaze and bake for another 30 minutes.
Baste occasionally with glaze.

If you had two bowls you could do the chopping first and then add the meat and mix using reverse button to combine.
Put in fridge then make glaze in other bowl.
You could also add any other veges to the meatloaf - I added in the first one sun dried tomatoes and in the one I have made today I added charred capsicum.

This has been converted from the recipe on page 34 of Australian Womens Weekly All Time Favourites cookbook.

DizzyGirl - This is our favourite meatloaf recipe. The only way I make meatloaf.

JD - Kerry, this is the first time I have ever made a meat loaf and I have to say we really enjoyed your recipe.  Thanks so much for posting it.

Katiej - it was lovely. My DH loves meatloaf and he said this was the best meatloaf I'd ever made. Thanks Kezza for a great recipe.
I used pork mince in place of the sausage mince, added a couple of red chillies to the meatloaf mix and left the coffee out of the glaze (only because I hate coffee).  I really enjoyed it also and I'm not normally a fan of meatloaf.  Plenty leftover in the freezer for another meal.

maddy - I turned this meatloaf into meatballs and it was a trip down memory lane. I cooked for the same period of time listed.

Kimmyh - it is lovely. Only a little bit is left. I did use a slightly different method as I don't like getting my hands dirty if I don't have to. I put frozen bread chunks and parsley in tmx and blitz 10 secs, speed 6, and set aside. No need to clean bowl. Add onion, garlic, celery and carrot chop 5 secs, speed 5. I then added all ingredients into tmx and mixed 15 secs, speed 5. Then followed rest of recipe.  Lots of glaze so kept some back and brushed on meatloaf slices and served. Thank you for a great recipe. Will make again.

INAID -  It's delicious! If I don't have sausage mince I just use more mince or add breadcrumbs. I don't normally like sausage mince.

What is, or better still, how does one make   "sausage mince" ?

Post by: kezza on April 04, 2014, 01:45:15 pm
Yarrenbool, sausage mince is the filling from bought sausages, or if you make your own sausages, whatever you use to make them.  I buy sausages and then open them up, discard skin and use the filling.

I use pork mince instead of sausage mince, as I don't like sausage mince either.
Title: Re: AWW Rich Glazed Meatloaf
Post by: cookie1 on April 06, 2014, 07:06:42 am
The bought sausage mince seems to have a lot of fat in it. Could you make your own by just taking meat that bit further after you have minced it?

Last Friday my MIL & FIL had their 50th wedding anniversary and part of the celebrations was a party they held in the community centre at their retirement village.  MIL asked me to make a few items of finger food for the night.  According to the guests the highlight of the food was the mini meatballs I made (at least 6 ladies asked me how I made them and if they could have the recipe  :)).

This is a favourite recipe of ours sometimes I make it as meatloaf and other times as meatballs.

When I make meatballs, I make double the amount of glaze so all the meatballs get a good coverage.  I guess it becomes more like a sauce than a glaze.

For the meatballs make the meatloaf as per the recipe, but I substitute pork mince for the sausage mince and zucchini for the celery (purely for personal taste).  I also leave out the breadcrumbs, as I think the texture of the meatballs is softer without the added bread.  Roll into meatballs of whatever size you fancy.  Place them in a baking dish and bake for 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of your meatballs.  Drain any excess fat (I find dabbing with paper towel helps with this).  Pour over the glaze and bake for another 20 to 30 minutes, giving them a gentle stir around in the glaze a couple of times whilst cooking, to ensure they are all covered.

For the glaze double the recipe ingredients with the exception of the water.  I also leave out the coffee (personal taste).  Increase the cooking time from 10 minutes to 15 minutes.

Thanks Katie.  You made them in advance and froze them didn't  you?
Title: Re: AWW Rich Glazed Meatloaf
Post by: Katiej on August 12, 2015, 05:16:52 am
Yes Judy, I made them a couple of weeks in advance and froze them in a Pyrex dish (the type of Pyrex dish that has a plastic lid).  I placed a piece of go-between freezer plastic on top of the meatballs, just to stop any freezer burn.

I defrosted them in the fridge the night before I needed them. On the night I removed the plastic lid and the freezer plastic and placed the Pyrex dish straight into the oven, along with the other items we were heating, like mini quiche, sausage rolls, pies etc.  I gave them a stir around a couple of times whilst they were reheating.  They froze and reheated without any issues.
