1-1/3 lb. ground sirloin, 90% lean ground beef 1 slice white bread, spread with softened butter, then cut into small cubes 1/8 cup milk 1 egg 2 tsp. grill seasoning blend, or coarse salt and black pepper combined 1/2 tsp. ground allspice 1 rounded TB tomato paste 1 medium onion, finely chopped, reserve 1/4 amount for gravy
~~~Gravy~~~ 1/4 medium onion, finely chopped, reserved from meat loaf mixture 2 TB all purpose flour 1 to 1-1/2 cups beef stock 1 TB ketchup 1 rounded tsp. spicy brown mustard 1 TB steak sauce
Place meat in a large mixing bowl and create a well in the center of the meat. Fill the well with the bread cubes and dampen them with a splash of milk. Pour 1 beaten egg over bread and add seasoning or salt and pepper, allspice, tomato paste and onion to the bowl.
Combine the meat, bread and grill seasoning or salt and pepper and form mixture into 4 large oval patties 3/4" thick. Pan fry patties in a nonstick skillet over medium high heat 7 minutes on each side under a loose tin foil tent. The tent will reflect heat and allow the steam to escape the pan.
Remove patties to a platter and return pan to heat. Reduce heat to medium and add butter and onion to your skillet. Cook the onion 2 minutes and sprinkle pan with flour. Cook flour 1 minute and whisk in 1 cup beef stock. Bring broth to a bubble. If gravy is too thick, thin with additional stock. Stir in condiments and remove gravy from heat.
Slice meat loaf patties and drizzle with gravy.
Yield: 4 servings.
