Recipes - Pork Meat Loaf with Apples and Sage

Feeling guilty that I hadn't used the ground pork as planned with green beans for dinner last night I searched for something I could make with it and heat up later. I found this at Put Pork on Your Fork. I had all the ingredients at hand so it was easy.

Apple and Sage Meatloaf

Yield: Serves 8
Cooking Time: 90 minutes
Preparation Time: 30 minutes


2 lb (1 kg) Lean ground Canadian Pork

1 cup (250 mL) finely diced onion

1 cup (250 mL) fresh breadcrumbs

1 cup (250 mL) milk

1/2 cup (125 mL) apples, roughly chopped

1/2 cup (125 mL) chopped parsley

2 Tbsp (25 mL) Dijon mustard

1 Tbsp (15 mL) chopped fresh sage

1 egg

1 tsp (5 mL) each: salt and ground black pepper

2 Tbsp (25 mL) butter

1 medium onion, sliced

2 Ttbsp (25 mL) flour

2 cups (500 mL) beef bouillon

Cooking Instructions

Pre-heat oven to 350°F (180°C). In a large mixing bowl, combine ground Pork, onion, breadcrumbs, milk, apples, parsley, mustard, sage, egg, salt and pepper, being careful not to overwork the mixture. Place in a greased medium loaf pan. Place pan on a baking sheet and bake for about 90 minutes, or until the middle of the meatloaf registers 160°F (60°C) on a meat thermometer.

Sauce: In a small saucepan, melt butter, then add onions over high heat. Cook onions until browned. Away from heat, stir in flour until fully incorporated. Return to heat and whisk in bouillon. Bring to a boil and adjust seasoning. Simmer for about 5 minutes.
