One of the most powerful things we can do as women is to unleash our mad cooking skills.
Yes, I’m a feminist. Being a feminist does NOT mean that I can’t work cooking magic; it means I can. It just means it’s my choice to share my talents with the world–or at least the 4 people I love most. It means if I don’t want to, I don’t have to. But I want to, so I do.
I have found that meatloaf goes a long way towards smoothing things over after an argument. Did you know about the magical powers of meatloaf? If you didn’t know, it’s perhaps the fault of the cafeteria-style meatloaf experiences you’ve had in the past. This is NOT that!
I also must admit that since the price of beef has skyrocketed to almost $7 a pound (a pound, people!) I have been mixing beef and ground pork (I don’t like ground turkey.). But this time, I used pure beef. Because luxury.
I experimented with the glaze and it was amazing.
5 pounds ground beef
1 jalapeno, chopped
1 can green chilies
1 package Knorr’s Beef Broth
2 tsp. dried onions
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup milk
Seasoning to taste.
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sriracha chili sauce
Directions: Preheat oven to 375.
In a blender, add the vegetables, milk, bread crumbs, broth, egg and spices. Liquefy.
In a big bowl, put the hamburger in. Pour the blender mixture on top. Mix thoroughly.
Place into a large baking pan. Smooth out so it doesn’t look weird.
In another small bowl, mix the glaze. Pour on top of the meat loaf.
Bake for about an hour or until the middle is clear.

I have a question, my friend. Large baking pan? I have a loaf pan designed for meatloaf with a draining inner pan. Does 5 lbs of meat need something larger or make two “loaves”? Sounds yummy – like all your recipes!
I need that! This would probably make 2 of those.
