Calabrian Chile-Glazed Meatloaf with Lemon-Caper Roasted Vegetables
Title
  • 10 oz Ground Beef
  • 1 Pasture-Raised Egg
  • 6 oz Carrots
  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • ¾ lb Golden Potatoes
  • 1 Lemon
  • ¼ cup Panko Breadcrumbs
  • ¼ cup Grated Parmesan Cheese

Prepare & roast the vegetables
1 Prepare & roast the vegetables

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the potatoes. Peel the carrots; halve crosswise, then quarter lengthwise. Transfer to a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 21 to 23 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

Meanwhile, peel 2 cloves of garlic; using a zester, finely grate into a paste (or use the small side of a box grater). Zest the lemon to get 1 teaspoon (or use the small side of a box grater). Quarter and deseed the lemon. Roughly chop the capers. In a large bowl, whisk together the lemon zest, chopped capers, the juice of 2 lemon wedges, and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. In a separate bowl, combine the ketchup and as much of the chile paste as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be.

Line a separate sheet pan with foil; evenly coat the center of the foil with a drizzle of olive oil. In a large bowl, combine the beef, egg, Italian seasoning, garlic paste, breadcrumbs, and half the cheese; season with salt and pepper. Gently mix to combine. Transfer to the oiled portion of the sheet pan. Shape into a tightly packed loaf, about 7 inches by 3 inches. Transfer half the spicy ketchup to a separate bowl and set aside. Evenly top the meatloaf with the remaining spicy ketchup. Bake 14 to 16 minutes, or until browned and cooked through.* Remove from the oven and let rest at least 2 minutes.
