1 1/2 lbs ground meat. 1/2 lb pork, 1/2 lb lean beef, 1/2 lb turkey (pork is a lean meat, however not AS lean as turkey, but it has more flavor.
3/4 cup steel cut oats
2 egg whites (the whites are really the glue to the oatmeal, the yolk really doesn't add anything to the party
2 cloves crushed garlic
1 chopped onion
3/4 cup milk 2% will be fine, nonfat won't work really well
1 tbsp dried basil
1 tsp dried rosemary
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp salt
freshly ground black pepper
1 Tbsp Worchestershire sauce
1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp dried mustard
Combine all ingredients into a bowl and mix well with your hands. Put the loaf into the loaf pan coat with 1 cup of sauce spread across the top, and bake for 90 minutes at 350 degrees.
1 bottle of your favorite store brand of spaghetti sauce. I like Classico tomato basil.
1/2 cup barley malt syrup
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
Place all ingredients into a saucepan and reduce by 1/3 until thick like pizza sauce.
Serve over brown rice (I like to make a pilaf kind of brown rice by cooking it in chicken stock with chopped carrots, onions, and parsley.)
Cut one inch thick slices and put on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Spoon a generous amount of sauce over the top of each slice and place lukewarm into your freezer for about 3 hours. Remove and place frozen blocks into ziplock bags to refreeze. They will be portioned and individually frozen.
