The finished dish tastes even better than I imagined, and unlike its visual impact, it is very soft and tender, making it an excellent meatloaf Hamburg. The tomato ketchup-based sauce and melted cheese go well with beer or wine. But, of course, it also goes well with white rice!

What’s most amazing is the impact of the photo of the official Hot Cook recipe. It looks like a “chunk of meat” in the shape of the bottom of Hot Cook turned upside down.

I’ve been wanting to try making this recipe for a while, so I made a “whole meatloaf Hamburg” over the weekend.

When I think of meatloaf, I think of it as something that takes a long time to cook in the oven, but with the Hot Cook, I can just leave it alone, and it turns out quite delicious. It was easy to prepare and came out in no time at all.

This time I cut it in half and served it with white rice for two.

You can also cut it into smaller pieces and enjoy it as a snack or spread it on bread.

I highly recommend this dish!

Hot Cook Recipe [Whole Meatloaf Hamburg] One Point Advice

  • If you have a fluorine-coated inner pot, the meat will not stick to the bottom of the pot. But, if you have a stainless steel inner pot, the meat may stick to the bottom of the pot, in which case you should put aluminum foil on the bottom of the pot and put the meat on it.

Hot Cook Recipe [Whole Meatloaf Hamburg] How to make

STEP 1:Prepare ingredients
  • Prepare the minced pork. In our house, we use a food processor to make it from pork back rib.

  • Finely chop the onions as much as possible to make the texture of the finished dish better.
  • Prepare the bread crumbs. I didn’t have bread crumbs this time, so I used the ears off of a regular loaf of bread and tore them off by hand.
  • Put the minced pork, onion, egg, milk, salt, pepper, and bread crumbs in a bowl.

  • Mix well by hand. The more you mix, the better it will taste. For example, I put a food storage bag over my hands, put a rubber band around my wrist, and mixed for about 5 minutes.

  • Mix the tomato ketchup, white wine, and Worcestershire sauce together.
