Or meatwad as I like to call it. This is another recipe from Chef John. He posted a video yesterday (http://foodwishes.blogspot.com/2009/04/trader-joes-meatloaf-do-as-i-say-and-as.html) which I found really interesting because most of the ingrediants came from Trader Joes. There's one on the way home from work! I would also kill the meatloaf craving that Justyn has had for quite some time. Perfect!
Damn, what a shitty commute that was. Normally when I'm not commuting with Justyn, I take 87 home. But because I had to stop by Trader Joe's, I took 85. Nevar again. Oh yeah, and some jackass almost backed into my car while I was driving through the parking lot. Bah... I was already in a foul mood but I quickly got my grocery shopping done. Here's what I picked up since I had the rest of the ingrediants at home:
- Ground Beef (2 lbs: 1 Kosher because they only had one pack of Angus left)
- Wine (hey I had a shitty commute home k?)
- Beef Broth
I pretty much stuck to the video instructions with exception to making mashed potatoes so here are the pictures. It turned out really good. I had to bake it for 10 minutes more to get it up to 155 degrees but it was mouth wateringly good. I didn't really like the gravy but I suspect my pan had something to do with it. When Justyn got home and tasted it, he thought I made mushroom gravy. Uhm... I didn't put any mushrooms in it? Oh and I apologize for the crappy looking plate. I really did want to make it pretty but by the time I got done cooking and plating, it was past 7:00pm. Plus I was hungry!!
