not this meatloaf

Mae and I are fans of Meat Loaf. That's Meat Loaf the rocker, not meatloaf the meat by-product! So there we were one fine evening quietly enjoying a little Meatloaf on the car radio when Mae was suddenly overcome by a flash of brilliance.

"You know what?" Mae spoke with sage-like knowing. She did not wait for me to probe further. This one was almost bursting out from the corners of her mouth, "Meat Loaf calls himself 'Meat Loaf' because it's cool."

And just like that, the floodgates of wisdom sprang open, overwhelming me into speechlessness; if there's such a word. And before I could even regain my composure, Mae imparted more of her deep thoughts. "If Meat Loaf called himself Sausage," she reasoned, "no one would buy his albums!"

Heheheh. How can I not love this woman, who brings so much joy into my life?

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Oh, btw, that picture of a meatloaf was one I had last year in this restaurant below my office. Unfortunately, these guys didn't stick around for too long. But since we're on the subject, is it just me or has anyone noticed that the so-called meatloaf we get in Malaysia is often always just a large slab of luncheon meat? Are there any good places to have authentic meatloaf?


  1. I oso want to know le. Where to get authentic meatloaf ah? *slurp* Hungry liao. Get Mae to make one for you la.

  2. hehe..there's yummy meatloaf u can get in taman tun, the shop name is Deutche Hauez something like that, located 2 shops away from Hong Leong (the balai police side of Taman Tun). Go try it and see :)

  3. Make it yourself.
    1 part beef, 1 part pork, 1 part veal all ground up. Mix with worschesterchire(sp) sauce and pepper and herbs, celery, whatever the heck else, and some breadcrumbs, then bake.
    Meatloaf is -not- by product, luncheon meat or Spam lol ... weirdo :P

  14. Coby's Meatloaf (modified)
    For the meatloaf:
    3 slices white bread, crusts removed and cut into squares
    ½ cup milk
    500g beef mince
    500g pork mince
    2 onions, finely chopped
    2 teaspoons curry powder
    ¼ cup chopped parsley
    2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
    1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
    salt and pepper
    1 grated carrot
    For the sauce:
    ½ cup water
    ½ cup tomato sauce
    ¼ cup Worcestershire sauce
    2 tablespoons vinegar
    1 teaspoon instant coffee
    30g butter
    2 tablespoons lemon juice
    ¼ cup brown sugar
    Preheat oven to 180°C or 160°C for fan-forced.
    Let bread stand in milk until absorbed.
    Mix bread with the rest of meatloaf ingredients. Press mixture into a greased 4 litre capacity loaf tin. Bake for 30 minutes.
    Gently bring combined sauce ingredients to a boil. Reduce heat, simmer for 5 minutes.
    Drain fat from the meatloaf. Invert loaf onto a baking dish. Pour the sauce over the loaf and cook for a further 30 minutes, basting every 10 minutes.
    Looks like very mafan, but trust me, it's worth it! Serve with mash potatoes.

    Gwen, trust me, the meatloaf we get here is definitely some kind of spam. HEhh. Look at the picture, for goodness sake!
