Minced Beef Rosti (AKA Meatloaf)
Main Dish:How To Make Minced Meat Rosti
1 kg minced meat
100 ml olive oil
4 garlic cloves, chopped
1 sprig of parsley, roughly chopped
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp GF curry powder
1 tsp nutmeg
2 tsp salt
1 large bowl
1 moulded tin 11in approx long
1 wooden spoon
1 medium knife
Preheat the oven
Set the oven to 200ºC (400ºF/ gas mark 6)
Put the minced meat into the large bowl.
Add the chopped garlic, GF curry powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, olive oil, salt and parsley and mix thoroughly with your hands.
Spoon the mix into the mould. Distribute it evenly and then press firmly down on the meat to compact it and remove any air.
Put the tin in the oven and cook for 40 minutes.
To check if it's cooked, insert the knife into the mix.
If you can see the juice of the meat coming out leave it to cook for an extra 10 minutes.
When cooked through, remove from the oven.
Take the rosti out of the mould, cut it into portions and serve.
As a serving suggestion, you can accompany it with plain rice and a fresh tomato sauce or with just a fresh green salad.
