Meatloaf in the ELB…it might not look as amazing as oven baked ones, but convenience wise, it can’t be beat.
You just mix everything in a bowl, shape into a patty or 3, fit them in the ELB bowl, steam, and tada! A wonderful meal.
If you want to prep this the night before (like if you need it for next day’s lunch), you can follow the directions up until it’s covered with foil then refrigerate it until needed. Place in the ELB when ready and steam until done. I like to use a thermometer to make sure the meat is cooked through.
You can pair this with rice, veggies, Cornbread from this recipe https://athomewiththeresa.com/2020/05/07/electric-lunchbox-beef-stew-and-corn-bread-with-optional-flan/ or even this Bacon Grease Cornbread here https://athomewiththeresa.com/2020/10/26/electric-lunchbox-63-bacon-grease-cornbread/
Hope you like this recipe!

1 heaping cup of ground pork
1/3 cup Ritz cracker crumbs (or plain bread crumbs)
1/4 cup plain yogurt (or milk)
2 tablespoons chopped onions
1/4 teaspoon salt (I used celery salt)
Ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/4 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1. In a bowl, combine ground pork,
3. Ritz cracker crumbs,
5. Chopped onions,
6. Celery salt,
7. Ground black pepper,
8. And Italian seasoning.
9. Mix well to incorporate everything together.
10. Since there are 3 of us in my home, I divided the mixture into 3 roughly equal sized portions. I shaped them into individual logs, and squeezed them into the medium ELB bowl. It would definitely work in the big ELB bowl too. Set this aside for now.
11. In a small bowl, combine ketchup,
12. Worcestershire sauce,
13. And brown sugar.
14. Mix well to combine.
15. Use this sauce to coat the tops of the meatballs.
16. Cover the bowl with a piece of foil. Set the bowl on the ELB base. Add 3 ELB cups of water to the base. Cover and let steam until it shuts off, about an hour.
17. Carefully open the ELB and check the meat for doneness. I use a thermometer to make sure. 😊
18. Serve hot and enjoy!
