Asian Style Meatloaf

Meatloaf is considered by many as a comfort food associated with childhood. It is a very homey and easy dish to prepare especially with ground meat from the grocery store. Just mix in breadcrumbs, eggs, and seasonings, pop it into a loaf pan, and bake for an hour. Steam or roast some vegetables for a side and dinner is served.

Growing up in Malaysia, meatloaf was unheard of. We had many minced meat dishes like steamed pork and meatballs but never meatloaf. When I moved here, I was curious and had to check it out. Outside of home, meatloaf can be found at home or cafeteria style restaurants. I tried it and enjoyed it very much. So did my boys. To date, I have tried several versions and even posted an Eggless Meatloaf three years back.
