Of all the meat loaf recipes available, I think this one is my favourite.

It is inspired by a middle eastern recipe using ground beef.

Let me tell you right now that this meat loaf is sweet. It is probably the sweetest meat dish I have ever eaten and yet it works well. I have served this up to several friends and they have ALL asked for the recipe.

There are quite a few ingredients, but please, don't let this put you off. Most of the ingredients are things you will have already, and this does make a quite outstanding meal. A meal you would be proud to serve to guests.

A most delicious crock pot meal – So give it a try.


Middle Eastern Meat Loaf Recipe

2¼lb (1 kg) ground beef (mince meat)
2 onions finely diced
3 tsp crushed ginger
we used ginger out of a bottle
3 tsp crushed garlic
we used garlic out of a bottle
2 tsp cumin
or alternatively curry powder
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbls white wine vinegar
½ cup honey
½ cup sultanas (golden raisins)
½ cup (140g) tomato paste
3 cups bread crumbs
½ cup plain flour
½ cup parsley
finely chopped
½ cup mint
finely chopped
3 eggs
lightly beaten
1. Make two long strips of aluminium foil, long enough to sit in the crock pot and overhang at sides. Place them in the crock pot so that they form a cross on the bottom of the pot. When the meat loaf is cooked you will use this to remove it from the crock – so make sure the ends are long enough to gather on top of the loaf.
2. Place all ingredients in a very large mixing bowl.
3. Mix with hands (yes – will need to get those hands dirty for this one) until well combined.
4. Shape with hands into a large round meatloaf about ½ an inch smaller than your crock pot.
5. Place loaf into crock pot, on top of the aluminium foil strips. An ensuring loaf is not touching sides of crock.
6. Cover and cook for 8-10 hours on Low OR 5 hours on High.
7. Remove from crock pot using aluminium strips as handles. Cut into slices and enjoy with roast vegetables or steamed vegetables and mashed potato.
    Serves 8-10
