Dinner Tonight

I have a favourite recipe that I have been making for years, that I would like to share with you.
It is one that I made tonight, and after smelling it and working with all of the ingredients, for almost 2 hours, it was so tasty when we finally got to eat it for dinner.

Shereen's Meatloaf Recipe:

1 pound beef, ground, lean
1 pound sausage stuffing
1 cup breadcrumbs, fine
2 medium onions, chopped finely
2 tablespoons curry powder
½ cup water
1 tablespoon parsley, chopped
1 egg, beaten
1 clove garlic, minced
½ cup milk, if needed
1 onion, chopped very finely
¼ cup water
½ cup ketchup
¼ cup red wine or beef stock
¼ cup Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons vinegar
¼ cup sugar, brown
1 ounce margarine
2 teaspoons lemon juice

Combine meats, breadcrumbs, onions, salt, pepper, garlic, parsley, curry and egg in large bowl. Mix well. Mix milk and water and add to meat mixture a little at a time until smooth but firm. Shape into loaf and put into loaf pan (greased).
Bake 30 minutes at 375F.

Saute onions in margarine until golden and add all other ingredients. Bring slowly to a boil, lower heat and simmer 10 to 15 minutes. After loaf has cooked for 30 minutes, pour half of the sauce over the meat, return to oven and bake for 45 minutes more, basting often.

And to go with it tonight...

Roasted Parmesan Potatoes:
3 tbsps butter, melted
3 tbsps grated Parmesan cheese
8 medium unpeeled red potatoes, halved lengthwise

Pour butter into a baking pan. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over butter. Place potatoes with cut side down over cheese. Bake uncovered, at 400F for 40-45 minutes or until tender.
Makes 8 servings.
