Chinese Meatloaf

Full disclosure: I saw these burgers on a favorite website and decided to make them last night.  But, it rained and I’m not that dedicated a griller, so I did something I haven’t done in my entire life.  I made meatloaf.  The most delicious, moist, surprising, Asian flavored meatloaf.  It’s true what they say about  necessity being the mother of meatloaf.  Or rain being the mother of invention.  Anywho, I served it with sticky rice and salad with Andra’s Ginger Vinaigrette and I was a rainy day hero.

Chinese Meatloaf

3 Tbsp hoisin sauce

3 Tbsp Chinese Five Spice

1 Tbsp freshly grated ginger

2/3 cup Panko breadcrumbs

2 eggs

4 scallions, thinly sliced

1 bunch, about 1/2 cup chopped cilantro

1.5 lbs lean ground beef

Preheat oven to 350°.  Mix all ingredients and form into a 9 x 5 loaf shape on a foil covered baking sheet. Brush all over with about another Tbsp of hoisin.  Bake for 40 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 160°.  Let rest for a few minutes before slicing and serving.
