Few people have asked for this recipe. Simple mid week meal. Serve with lots of butter mash, gravy and some seasonal veg.
1 kilo good quality beef mince
1 carrot grated
1/2 courgette grated
1 onion finely chopped
1 stick celery finely diced
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp thyme
salt and pepper
handful bradcrumbs (I never weigh)
1. Sweat of onions and celery in a little oil and butter until softened.
2. In a large bowl add all ingredients and mix well together. Ensure you season well.
3. You can either free form meatloaf or use a bread pan. I use a bread pan and line with aluminium foil.. as you get caramelised bits that can be a pain to clean. Place meat mix in pan and squish down so evenly distributed. Brush entire top with ketchup. Maybe 1-2 tbls worth. Pop pan on a baking sheet and into preheated oven. Cook 45-1 hr. till Centre temp reads 65-70c. Allow to rest 10 min before trying to slice.
