    SarikaKisSzentem's Note:

    This is a typical Meatloaf found in eastern European kitchens and restaurants. My Dad who was a wonderful cook brought this with him when he came to America in the 20's. I've added the glaze when I started to prepare it myself. Also he used to use minced garlic, not the other type I now use. Remember to get lean ground pork. The pork I remembered seeing in the supermarkets had very visible pork fat. Try not to purchase that type. Buttered parslied potatoes and cucumber salad go especially well with this dish. You can use either a loaf pan or a 9x13. One tip said she used a loaf pan and was able to extract the grease before adding the glaze. Both pans are usable. See which one works best for you.

      I'm not a fan of meatloaf, but I'll still give it 5 stars for my husband who said it tasted way better with pork than with beef. Very tender, flavorful, and moist!

      Made for Fall '09 PAC. Nice flavor. Held together well making it so nice to slice. I really enjoyed the ketchup glace as it enhanced the taste of the loaf. Very basic recipe, really. Obviously, the pork makes the difference, but I think the spiciness of the ketchup helped revv it up a notch or two. Thanks for sharing with us.
