Meatloaf with Fried Onions and Tomato Gravy

Low Calorie:  187 calories per serving

Ingredients

 

Meatloaf:

5 pounds chopped meat (2 1/2 pounds’ beef, 2 1/2 pounds’ pork)

15 ounces’ Italian bread crumbs

10 eggs

1 chicken bouillon cube, dissolved in 1/2 cup hot water

1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan

Chopped parsley

Salt and pepper

Tomato Gravy:

2 tablespoons butter

4 cloves smashed garlic cloves

2 tablespoons flour

2 (14-ounce) cans chicken stock

2 tablespoons tomato paste

1/4 cup red wine vinegar

1 (14-ounce) can whole tomatoes

Salt and pepper

1 tablespoon dried oregano

Fried Onions:

3 large Spanish onions, peeled, cut in 1/2, and thinly sliced

1 quart milk

1 pound all-purpose flour

2 quarts canola oil

 

Directions

 

To make Meatloaf: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

 

In a large bowl, mix chopped meat, bread crumbs, eggs, bouillon broth, Parmesan, and chopped parsley. Mix well with a wooden spoon until all the ingredients are well incorporated. Form into a loaf shape and place on a sheet pan coated with nonstick vegetable spray.

 

Place in oven and cook for 45 minutes, or until meatloaf has an internal temperature of 160 degrees.

 

To make Tomato Gravy: In a large saucepan, heat butter over medium-high heat. Allow butter to foam and begin to brown. Add smashed garlic and allow garlic to brown slightly. Sprinkle in flour and stir constantly, forming a roux to cook for approximately 10 to 12 minutes until golden brown. Add chicken stock and tomato paste and cook for 3 to 5 minutes.

 

Add 1/4 cup red wine vinegar and all tomatoes. Simmer for 30 minutes and finish with salt, pepper and oregano. Serve atop the meatloaf.

 

To make Fried Onions: Heat a large, deep pot of oil to 350 degrees. Soak onions in milk for a minimum of 10 minutes. When oil is hot, drain onions and dredge in flour, making sure to remove excess flour.

 

Plunge onions a batch at a time (there should be 3 batches) into hot oil and fry until extremely golden brown and crispy. Remove from fryer and place on a paper towel to drain. Serve atop dressed meatloaf.
