The Local Butcher Shop’s Mmm Mmm Good Meatloaf
Makes 1 loaf pan of moist meatloaf
2 1/3 pounds of ground beef
1/2 pound of ground pork belly
2 cups of breadcrumbs
2 3/5 cups cream
1 medium yellow onion
1 bunch of parsley
1 bunch of sage
16 grams of salt

1 gram of fennel seeds
4 cloves of garlic
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.
Dice the onion.
Finely chop the parsley and sage.
In a small bowl, pour cream over breadcrumbs and gently mix. Let breadcrumbs soak up cream.
In a spice grinder, grind chili flakes, black peppercorns and fennel seed until finely ground.
Pound garlic in a mortar with a pestle until the garlic is goopey and paste-like.
Put the ground beef and ground pork belly in a bowl (or mixing bowl). Add eggs, onion, bread crumbs, spices, and herbs. Mix until well combined.
Pack mixture into loaf pan and bake at 400 degrees for 1 hour.
Let cool. Then unmold the meatloaf by flipping the pan over. Slice and serve or re-heat the loaf in a low oven.
