Hawaiian Style Meatloaf

First off, Happy New Year to everyone. Secondly, sorry for such a long period of no recipes. I was under the weather for almost three months. All better now.

Here is a easy and very tasty recipe to start the new year! Put all the meatloaf ingredients in a bowl, mix them together, and bake. It’s that simple.

Here is what you’ll need for the meatloaf:

1 pound very lean ground beef

1 pound ground pork

1 cup original yakitori sauce

1 cup onion, finely chopped

2 eggs

1 cup Panko bread crumbs

1/3 cup of milk

2 tablespoons mayonnaise

Here is what you’ll need for topping the meatloaf:

fresh pineapple slices, if available, otherwise canned will work

2-3 stalks green onion, chopped

more yakitori sauce

Here is what you’ll do:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all the meatloaf ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Mix well by hand. Coat a 9 x 13 baking dish with cooking spray. Make a loaf shape in the cooking dish, leaving room along the sides lengthwise (see photo).

Bake in oven for 45 minutes. Remove from oven and place pineapple slices on top of meatloaf and drizzle yakitori sauce over meatloaf and pineapple to cover, as desired, then return to oven for 15 minutes. Remove, top with green onion, and serve with steamed rice and vegetable. As they say in Hawaii, “Ono-liscious” very tasty, enjoy!
