Southwestern Meatloaf

Z'Tejas Copycat Recipe

4 eggs
1/2 cup diced celery
1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
3/4 cup diced yellow onion
2 pounds ground beef
1 pound ground pork
1/2 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons garlic
2 tablespoons paprika
1 tablespoon cayenne
1 tablespoon kosher salt
1 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
nonstick cooking spray

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk eggs in large mixing bowl. Mix celery, red bell peppers and onions in with eggs until completely combined. Add ground beef, ground pork, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, paprika, cayenne, salt, bread crumbs and Tabasco sauce and mix well. Spray baking pan with non-stick spray and form meat mixture into a loaf. Place in oven and bake for 35 minutes. Slice and serve with Crispy Onion Rings and sweet herb onion demi glace over each slice.

Sweet Herb Onion Demi-Glace:
1 medium white onion, cut into thin strips
4 tablespoons butter, divided
4 ounces beef demi-glace base (available in the soup or bouillon section of many grocery stores)
1 1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon heavy cream
pinch of kosher salt

While the meatloaf is baking, place 2 tablespoons butter and onions in medium sauce pan over low heat and slowly begin to caramelize onions. (Do not rush this step. It will take an hour to properly caramelize the onions.) Every 5 to 10 minutes, stir onions to evenly caramelize them. Once onions have caramelized to a nice golden brown color, add demi-glace base and water. Bring heat up slightly to let sauce come to a simmer. When ingredients are well incorporated, remove from heat. To finish sauce, whisk in the rest of the butter, heavy cream and salt.
