Beef, Pork and Mushroom Meatball

Updated on June 13, 2019

Although it is summer, England is still cold and rainy. I know of the English weather stereotype but I have to say I was still hoping for a sunny and warm day, alas it rained when we set off for the village market. I usually only go to markets when I visit my family in the South of France but I am happy I went today. Originally we only mean to buy raspberries at the market and then headache meds, plasters and a new backpack but I must say we blew the budget a little... At the market we found the fruit and vegetables were so cheap we could not in good conscience leave without buying some of our favourites. We got two avocados for 50p (and I stabbed my hand trying to open one...), three mangoes for £2 (usually one mango costs about £1.50) and two packs of raspberries. Then my boyfriend suggested we have a look in a bookshop, my ultimate weekness... I am now the proud owner of three new books, making the total of books I need to read before I run out of space on my nightstand six. For a girl that does not have a job I sure do spend a lot. Although I did make a deal with my boyfriend, I was allowed to buy those books if I promised I would not buy any more books during the summer. He promised he would hold me to that and I hope he does because I am really no good with money, if anyone has any tips, please tell me!

Anyway, sorry for my ramblings. This is the only other recipe my mother managed to teach me before I left for university. Be aware, this makes a lot of meatloaf, as a student I would make one on the Saturday when I did my groceries and it would last me till the Friday.
I like to have this meatloaf with a ratatouille (the recipe I posted yesterday!) but it goes with anything, another side dish I like to have with this would be with rice. To make the rice extra tasty I like to dissolve a stock cube in the water I cook it in. But really, it's up to you. Whatever you decide to do, please tell me if you liked it!


  • 500 grams minced beef
  • 500 grams minced pork
  • 1 egg
  • 100-200 grams mushroom
  • flour
  • 500ml beef stock
  • salt
  • pepper
  • onion powder
  • 1 clove of garlic


  1. First, take out the meat and leave to stand on a counter until they reach room temperature. Turn your oven on and preheat at 200C. Once that has happened, you'll want to drop the mushrooms and the garlic in a mixer until the pieces look to be about 1mm.
  2. Put the mixed mushroon and garlic in a large bowl before adding the minced pork and beef. You can mix everything with your hands or with a large wooden spoon, depending on your preference. Once you have mixed everything together add the egg, this will help hold the meatloaf together. After that, shape the meat mixture into a large sausage.
  3. Once the large sausage has been molded cover it in a thin layer of flour, making sure everything is covered. Then, deposit it in a dish large enough to hold the loaf and spoon/pour the beef stock over the meatloaf, again making sure that everything is covered but be careful that it does not wash away the flour.
  4. At that point your meatloaf is ready too cook. Place the dish in the oven and cook for about 30-40 min or until the meatloaf is no longer pink in the middle. Enjoy!
