Wild Rice Meat loaf
2 lbs ground beef
3/4 cup onion, diced
1/2 cup tomatoes, diced (drained and pressed)
1/4 cup green chilies, diced (drained and pressed)
2 Tbsp garlic, minced
2 Tbsp minute rice, uncooked
3/4 cup wild rice, cooked and drained
1 Tbsp buckwheat flour
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp granulated garlic
1/2 tsp smoked hot paprika
1 tsp onion powder
Mix all ingredients together; mix well. Place meatloaf in a pan. Form meatloaf in the pan, leaving a gap between the meatloaf and the sides of the pan. Be sure to pack the meatloaf extremely tight.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until the internal temperature is at 160 degrees.
Smear ketchup over the top and cook an additional 15 minutes. Let stand for 10-15 minutes. Transfer to a sheet pan to cool before cutting.
