Loaf of Meat

Total Time:

1 hr 30 min

6 servings

  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 pound pork
  • 1/2 pound veal
  • 3/4 cup barbecue sauce
  • 3/4 cup plain bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1 teaspoon MSG, optional
  • 1 teaspoon white table sugar
  • 4 tablespoons sweet paprika
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoons seasoned salt

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Spread a large sheet of aluminum foil on your counter. Crack egg into center of foil and put all meat on top of egg. Work the egg into the meat and the meats together using your hands until well blended. Flatten out meat. Cover mixture with all remaining ingredients.

Work all the ingredients together with your hands until well blended, do not rush. Flatten out resulting mixture into what resembles a very large hamburger patty, making sure that it is fairly uniform, 1 1/2 inches thick at most. Separate coating ingredients into 2 equal parts.

First sprinkle garlic powder, salt, paprika, and sugar over the top of the meat patty/loaf. Flip the loaf over and repeat coating on the other side. Place the loaf on a baker's rack over the top of a casserole dish so the extra fat can drip away from the loaf as it cooks. Put the loaf in the center of the rack and cook for 1 hour. Check by cutting the loaf in half to make sure the center is fully cooked, 1 hour usually does it, but if not then cut out two thick pieces from the center and just put those 2 back into the oven for 10 or 15 more minutes.
