This is the kind of tasty, never-fail-to-please meal that’s kept the home fires burning in every corner of the once-glorious Empire for generations. Deliciously filling with layers of complementary flavours that will make the whole family go "Mmm-mmm!"
Ripened on the vine under the Hawke's Bay sun, Wattie's Indian Style Tomatoes are diced and blended, then seasoned for an authentic Indian flavour.
Preheat oven to 180°C (fan bake).
In a large bowl, combine beef mince, onion, Gregg's Crushed Garlic, Gregg's Dried Mixed Herbs, parsley, breadcrumbs, eggs, 3 tablespoons Lea & Perrins, and half a can Wattie's Indian Style Tomatoes, season well with salt and pepper.
Using your hands or a wooden spoon, mix well. Shape the mixture into a loaf shape and place in a 7-8 cup capacity lasagne-style dish.
Combine the remaining ½ can Wattie's Indian Style Tomatoes with 1 tablespoon Lea & Perrins and beef stock, mix well and pour over the loaf. Bake for 45 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through. Rest the meatloaf for 5 minutes before carving thick slices.
Serve with mashed potatoes and steamed green vegetables.
