What's this?

Say goodbye to traditional weeknight meatloaf. This sweet & tangy Asian meatloaf packs a punch.

Ingredients

  • 2 Pound ground beef

  • 12 Slices Bacon, peppered

  • 1 Large onion, diced

  • 6 Clove garlic, minced

  • 1 Whole red bell pepper, diced

  • 1 Cup breadcrumbs

  • 2 Whole eggs

  • 1 Teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

  • 1/2 Cup cilantro, finely chopped

  • 1 Bottle Traeger Mandarin Glaze

  • 67/100 Cup milk

Steps

  • 1

    Place ground beef in a large mixing bowl; set aside. Dice the bacon slices and cook in a skillet until lightly browned. Remove bacon with slotted spoon and set aside.
  • 2

    Remove all but 2 tablespoons of bacon fat from skillet. Add the onion, garlic and pepper and saute until onion is translucent.
  • 3

    Add to the ground beef along with the bread crumbs, eggs, Traeger Asian BBQ Rub, milk, Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 cup chopped cilantro and 1/3 cup Traeger Mandarin Glaze Sauce. Mix well to blend all ingredients.
  • 4

    Cover and place beef mixture into the fridge for at least 2 hours. Mold the beef into large round.
  • 5

    Start the Traeger on Smoke, lid open, until the fire is established (about 5 minutes). Carefully place the loaf on a cooking grid/rack placed on top of an aluminum foil-covered baking sheet.
  • 6

    Close lid and smoke on the Traeger for 1 hour. After the hour of smoke turn the heat up to 300 degrees and cook until the internal temperature of the meatloaf reaches 160 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer.

    Carefully slide the meatloaf onto a place and let rest for 15 to 20 minutes before dusting with more chopped cilantro. Slice and serve. Enjoy!
