"A great meatloaf with kick-attitude."
2 lbs. Slanker's 100% grass-fed ground beef or 100% grass-fed buffalo
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. black pepper
2 tsp. Real Salt sea salt
2 tsp. hot sauce
2 tsp. ginger flavor vinaigrette salad dressing (or find a quality substitute)
1 tsp. T-Coon's "The Stuff!"
1/2 c. chopped onion
1/2 c. thinly sliced mushrooms (optional)
Preheat the oven to 325°F.
Combine all ingredients in large bowl and mix. Place the mixture into a large glass baking dish or a roasting pan. Shape into a loaf, spreading the loaf out on all sides so that it is no thicker than 1.5 inches in the middle. The final loaf will be about 6" X 9", fitting nicely in a 9" square glass baking dish. There is no need to spray the baking dish first or to add any water.
Cover the dish with a lid or loosely with aluminum foil. Bake 1 hour and 20 minutes, removing the cover after 30 minutes. The internal temperature should get to 140-145°F. Be careful not to over cook or the meatloaf will begin to dry out. Remove from oven, slice and serve while still hot.
