  • Ready In

  1. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Place the onion, carrots, and water into a blender. Cover, and puree until smooth, adding more water if needed.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the ground chuck, pork, matzo meal, and eggs. Stir in the onion and carrot puree a little at a time until the meat mixture holds its shape (you may not need all the puree). Season with garlic, salt, and black pepper.
  4. Shape the meat mixture into a loaf and transfer to a baking dish. Pour the browning sauce and any remaining onion puree on top of the loaf. Fill baking dish with about 2-inches of water, then cover with aluminum foil.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until loaf is no longer pink in the center, about 1 hour and 20 minutes. Remove the foil and pour ketchup in a zig-zag shape over the loaf during the last 15 minutes of baking. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Allow the meat loaf to rest for 15 minutes before slicing and serving.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note
  • This goes great with halved red skin potatoes. Cook them around the meatloaf in the water. Or serve with garlic mashed potatoes and corn and broccoli, or asparagus and applesauce. I hope you all try this and enjoy it as much as my family does. This is a great recipe for people who don't like onions. I have onion haters in my family and they love this because they don't crunch the onion or taste it.

Loved it! The puree is a great way to hide veggies from the kids..... I added bell pepper and garlic to the puree and used V8 instead of ketchup. Thank you for the recipe!

Frankly, I missed the soft crumbly meat and texture of onions, bell peppers and celery. This was just okay for me. The texture is firm. With 2 pounds of meat and 2 cups of matzo that expands ...
