Wagyu & Kurobuta Meatloaf with Cast-iron Potatoes, Carrots and Parsnips

06/03/2019

Everyone loves a good meatloaf, right?

As an employee, I have ordered our Kurobuta ground pork in 5 lb. packages for years to make a variety of dishes. One of my family favorites is meatloaf with a combination of Snake River Farms Kurobuta ground pork and American Wagyu ground beef.

Exciting News! We now sell our ground beef and pork in 1 lb. packages and in a perfect bundle that ships directly to your door – the Wagyu and Kurobuta Craft Burger Combination.

Full Disclosure- I don’t normally measure any ingredients – so these are my best guestimates of how much of each ingredient.

Add meat mixture to a 4 x 8 or a 5 x 9 loaf pan and pat down evenly.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are a variety of ways to top off a delicious meatloaf – Kurobuta Bacon makes an amazing topping, but my family favorite is a super simple glaze.

Glaze Ingredients: 

3/4 Cup ketchup

1 Tablespoons yellow mustard

1/4 Cup brown sugar

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Combine the glaze ingredients until well blended and cover the top of the meatloaf evenly with the glaze. Bake meatloaf for 1 hour or until the internal temperature of the meatloaf is 155°F. Let meatloaf rest for 10 minutes.

While meatloaf is baking make your sides. Potatoes and veggies are a go-to for our family meatloaf dinners.

 

Cast-Iron Potatoes

 

Potato Ingredients:

6-8 Yukon Gold potatoes

Olive oil

Jacobsen’s Sea Salt

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Halve the potatoes and place cut side down, halve again.

 

 

 

 

 

Add olive oil to cast-iron skillet – put a good coat along the bottom 1/8 of an inch. Heat oil on medium heat. When the oil is hot, add a thin layer of Jacobsen’s salt. Bonus– this salt comes in the Wagyu and Kurobuta Craft Bundle.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Add potatoes keeping two sliced halves touching and fry at medium heat for 10 minutes, do not move potatoes. Gently lift potato to see a good browned crisp coat on the bottom, when browned turn burner to low and cover, heat for 20 minutes undisturbed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Potatoes are ready to serve.

 

 

 

BBQ Parsnips and Carrots

 

Parsnip and Carrot Ingredients:

2 Parsnips, peeled and angle sliced 1/4″

3 Carrots, peeled and angle sliced 1/4″

After meatloaf has rested for 10 minutes, plate, slice and enjoy!
