Curry Meatloaf

currymeatloaf1I talk a lot about my love for curry. I love how spices can take vegetables or cheaper cuts of meat and make them fantastic. So instead of the boring dried out meatloaf I was served as a child (which made me hate meatloaf) – I made this for dinner.

2 pounds ground lean beef
2 large eggs
2 heaping tablespoons gluten free bread crumbs
2 large carrots, grated
1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 stalks celery, finely chopped
1 roma tomato, diced
1 jalapeno, finely chopped
1 green onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon parsley (fresh or dried)
2 tablespoons garam masala
1 tablespoon curry powder
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon coriander
1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper, to taste

currymeatloaf4In a large skillet over medium high heat,  place the chopped onions, green onions,  celery, carrots, jalapeno and garlic in about 2 tablespoons olive oil.  After the vegetables have cooked for about 5 minutes add the garam masala, curry powder, cumin, coriander, turmeric, and ginger. Cook for another 5 minutes, until the vegetables are soft and have absorbed the spices. Turn off the heat and let it sit.

currymeatloaf3Preheat the oven to 350F. In a large bowl add the beef, eggs, bread crumbs, parsley, salt and pepper. Mix together well. Then add in the vegetables and spices from the skillet into a square baking dish.

    I never thought of putting curry and meatloaf together. But I think it sounds amazing!

      It was delicious and I was very happy with how it turned out. It had a lot of that curry taste without being overwhelming.

    yes!! And if you can handle oatmeal, it makes a terrific substitute for the bread crumbs!

      I’ll have to try that next time – I have some gluten free oats in the cupboard!
