1/3 cup finely chopped green onion(white and green parts)
3/4 cup bread crumbs
2 tablespoons rice wine or any dry white wine
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Mix all sauce ingredients thoroughly. Set aside to
allow flavors to marry.
Next, combine all meat loaf ingredients except cornstarch. Take
1 cup of sauce AND mix it into meat. Follow
this step with evenly sprinkling cornstarch over meat and thoroughly
mixing it in.
Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
in loaf pan and pack it down. Bake covered with foil for about 30
minutes. During last 10 minutes of initial 30-minute baking cycle,
remove meat loaf from oven, drain fat and slice into several serving-size
slices. Pour about 1/2 cup of sauce over meat, making sure some
of sauce runs down into cracks. Bake uncovered for about 15 more
Meanwhile, if you want, you can heat and thicken
leftover sauce with about 1 teaspoon cornstarch and an equal amount
of water. As sauce starts to thicken, you can add about 2 teaspoons
hot oil to sauce.
This recipe makes a lot of sauce, so leftover
heated sauce can be spooned over individual meatloaf servings if
If you want a browner meatloaf, bake covered
for about 20 minutes and uncovered for 15 to 20 minutes. Then drain
fat, slice meatloaf and pour sauce over it.
