A note about serious food allergies
It's been a rough, long work week. (We don't know about that at the Home Chef test kitchen, but we've heard rumors that work weeks can be rough!) Projects pile up, co-workers get on the nerves, coffee's stale, and the copy machine broke down one copy in. We're not suggesting you should eat your stress, but we are saying these hearty meatloaves doused in BBQ, with cheesy mashed potatoes on the side, are the perfect antidote to the weekly grind. (And there are fresh green beans on the side, just in case you have a hint of guilt about eating healthy.)
Due to our just-in-time sourcing model, we may have to send you a
substitute ingredient. Not to worry! We make sure every ingredient
sent to you meets our high quality standards. We’ll keep you
informed should a switch occur, so please check the ingredient
labels in your meal bag.
You Will Need
Before You Cook
To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:
Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
Seafood 145° F |
Chicken 165° F |
Ground Beef 160° F |
Ground Turkey 165° F |
Ground Pork 160° F
Customize It Instructions
If using ground pork, follow same instructions as ground beef in Steps 1 and 4, roasting in until meatloaves reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 21-25 minutes.
If using ground turkey, follow same instructions as ground beef in Steps 1 and 4, roasting in until meatloaves reach a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 20-23 minutes.
Start the Meatloaves
In a mixing bowl, combine ground beef, BBQ spice rub, half the milk (reserve remaining for potatoes), panko, and a pinch of salt.
Form meat mixture into two equal-sized loaves. Place loaves on prepared baking sheet.
Bake in hot oven until loaves reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 20-23 minutes.
While meatloaves cook, make mashed potatoes.
Make the Mashed Potatoes
Cut potatoes into large, evenly-sized chunks.
Bring a small pot with potatoes covered with water to a boil. Cook until fork-tender, 14-18 minutes.
Drain potatoes in a colander. Return to pot and add remaining milk and ½ tsp. salt. Mash until smooth. Cover and set aside.
While potatoes boil, prepare ingredients.
Prepare the Ingredients
Trim ends off green beans. Cut into 2" pieces.
Finish the Meatloaves
Generously spoon BBQ sauce over meatloaves.
Bake again until sauce glazes loaves, 4-5 minutes.
Rest baked meatloaves at least 3 minutes.
While loaves bake, cook green beans.
Cook Green Beans and Finish Dish
Place a medium pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add green beans, ¼ cup water, and a pinch of salt and pepper to hot pan. Cover, and cook until water is evaporated and green beans are tender, 4-6 minutes.
If green beans need more time, add 2 Tbsp. water and stir occasionally, 1-3 minutes.
Remove from burner.
