Easy Meat Loaf – Chinese Style


Are you tired of eating the same old meat loaf? Are you looking for a different recipe with exciting new flavors? Do you like Chinese food? Here is a recipe that combines a mixture of ground pork and beef with Chinese mushrooms, water chestnuts, scallions and soy sauce.


The glaze is a mixture of hoisin sauce, mustard and brown sugar. The result is unlike any meat loaf that you have ever tasted before.


Of course if you do not eat red meat, you can easily substitute ground turkey or chicken. You can serve it with Chinese fried rice or you can use traditional side dishes like potato salad or scalloped potatoes.

60 Minutes

Cooking Time:

60 Minutes / 10 Minutes

1 Teaspoon Sesame Seed Oil

Meat Loaf Glaze:

½ Cup Hoisin Sauce

2 Tablespoons Dark Brown Sugar

1 Tablespoon salad Mustard

  2. Add the egg and then the rest of the ingredients.
  3. Thoroughly mix the ingredients with your hands and form one large or two small loaves and place them in oiled meat loaf pans.
