    From the Test Kitchen

    We’re putting a twist on homestyle meatloaf by baking it with an irresistibly savory-sweet glaze of soy, hoisin, and spicy sambal—a delicious complement to the umami-rich sesame oil in our mashed potatoes.

    tips & techniques
    Prepare the ingredients & make the glaze
    1 Prepare the ingredients & make the glaze

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; large dice the leaves. Peel the ginger; finely chop to get 2 teaspoons (you may have extra). Medium dice the potatoes. Peel 2 cloves of garlic; using the flat side of your knife, smash each clove once. In a bowl, combine the soy glaze, hoisin sauce, half the sesame oil, and as much of the sambal oelek as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Stir to thoroughly combine.

    Season the cabbage
    2 Season the cabbage

    Line a sheet pan with foil. Place the diced cabbage on the foil. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer on one side of the sheet pan.

    Form & roast the meatloaf
    3 Form & roast the meatloaf

    Transfer half the glaze to a separate bowl; set aside for serving. In a large bowl, combine the pork, breadcrumbs, and chopped ginger. Season with salt and pepper; gently mix to combine. Transfer to the other side of the sheet pan of seasoned cabbage. Shape the mixture into a tightly packed loaf, about 7 inches by 3 inches. Evenly top with the remaining glaze. Bake 16 to 18 minutes, or until the cabbage is tender when pierced with a fork and the meatloaf is cooked through.* Transfer the meatloaf to a cutting board; let rest at least 5 minutes. 

    *The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 160°F for pork.

Cover to keep warm.
