Sweet & Sticky Pork Meatloaves

By on January 6, 2024


10 ounces of Ground Pork
2 Cloves of Garlic
1 TBSP Ponzu
14 cup Panko Breadcrumbs
2 TBSP Soy Sauce
1 TBSP Sesame Seeds
1 Scallion

Preheat oven to 425 degrees
Wash and dry produce.

Trim and thinly slice the scallions, separating greens from whites. Finely chop garlic and ginger. I use a grating tool for both.

In a bowl, combine the pork, ponzu, scallion whites, garlic, chopped ginger, panko crumbs, 1 TBSP Ketchup, 12 tsp salt, and a pinch of pepper. Knead and fold to incorporate all ingredients—form into 1-inch tall loaves.

In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, 3 TBSP ketchup, and 1 TBSP brown sugar stir well.

Place meatloaves on a small cookie sheet and brush the tops with the soy glaze. Sprinkle with sesame seed and bake for 20 minutes until meat registers 160 degrees with a meat thermometer.

When serving, sprinkle scallion greens and extra sesame seeds.
