Brown rice is the healthy killer filler in this refreshingly spicy meatloaf. Delicious served with a stir fry, and for sandwiches tomorrow.

INGREDIENTS

 2 cups cooked Ecogrown Missimati Bayou Bouquet Fragrant Brown Rice

1 pound lean ground beef

½ pound ground pork
½ cup ketchup
¾ cup sambal sauce (best homemade; recipe below. Commercial sauce will suffice)

2 tbsp garlic, minced
1 tbsp ginger, fresh minced
1 tbsp Thai basil
2 eggs, beaten
2 tbsp Worchester sauce
2 tbsp soy sauce
for garnish

METHOD

     Have rice cooked to package instruction (3/4 cup dry rice and 1½ water makes about 2 cups).

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
