Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Heat the butter and oil in a saute pan. Sweat the onion and garlic over medium heat, approximately 5 minutes. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, cream, and Dijon mustard. Add the ground beef and pork to the bowl, and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Add the onion mixture, toasted coriander seeds, paprika and cilantro stems to the bowl. Carefully fold the ingredients together, do not over mix. Place the meatloaf mixture in a 9-inch by 5-inch pan, tap down the pan to remove any air pockets. Place the meatloaf pan in a baking dish; pour the water inside the baking dish surrounding the meatloaf pan. Bake in the oven for 1 1/2 hours.

Turn the heat to medium high. Add the brown sugar and vinegar. Cook the mixture for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the liquid has evaporated and tomatoes have cooked down. Garnish with cilantro.

Grilled Onions and Zucchinis
