Venison Meatloaf

Pork and Venison Meatloaf

Meatloaf is a lovely comforting meal, that can be very economical, venison by itself would be a bit on the dry side, so have added an equal amount of minced pork, and used BBQ sauce to give a little sweetness to the loaf.

Sweat off a finely chopped small onion and clove of garlic, a diced small green pepper in a little light olive oil until soft. Set aside to cool.

In a large bowl, mix together 500g minced venison, 500g minced pork, 2 eggs, 150g panko breadcrumbs, 1 tsp salt and coarse ground black pepper, 2 tbsp Worcester sauce, 4 tbsps BBQ sauce,  2 tsp BBQ seasoning, and add the cooked onion, garlic and pepper. Mix together thoroughly.

In a 2lb loaf tin line with strips of smoked streaky bacon widthways, and spoon in the meatloaf mixture, applying a little pressure on top to firm the loaf.

Cook in a preaheted oven to 200 deg C for 50 to 60 minutes until cooked through, upend the loaf onto a baking tray and remove the loaf tin, and brush with a few tbsps BBQ sauce. Pop back into the oven for 10 minutes to crisp up the bacon.

I served  the loaf in thick slices with some buttered new potatoes and purple sprouting broccoli, with a dollop of BBQ sauce on the side, yum.

  3. What a great idea! I don’t get much venison anymore now that my dad is no longer hunting due to health issues. But, next time I do, I’m definitely trying meat loaf with it.

  4. Another dish to try! Would also make a very nice component of a more elaborate meal too I’m guessing. Thanks for posting.

  5. That’s a fantastic meatloaf – I particularly like the idea of lining the tin with bacon 😉

  7. This looks spot on. I eat venison more than any other red meat, but have never tried meatloaf, tempted to try with the addition of chipotle ( a little anyway). Thanks for a new venison idea!

    • Glad you like it, would be great with chipotle, mine was for a family meal, so don’t think the chilli would go down too well with the little ones. Please let me know how you get on if you do try it.
      Cheers
