If you like potstickers you are going to love this meatloaf! All the yummy asian flavors of the inside of a chicken potsticker, without the wrapper! The kicker is the chopped water chestnuts that add a fabulous crunch!
I kept the ingredients simple. No need to run to the store to get a plethora of asian ingredients you are only going to need once.
The glaze is a mixture of ketchup, bbq, soy sauce and few other things you probably have in your cupboard. Keeping it easy for ya!
And let me tell ya, if you think taking pics of meatloaf is easy…then you have never taken pics of meatloaf!
This recipe was one of my first posts about 6 years ago. My family actually ate most of it before I remembered I needed to take some photos. The pictures are horrible, I mean really horrible, but I keep it on the blog. Because believe it or not…some people actually still make it! You can see that post here: Asian Style Meatloaf. But here is a snippet of the picture…I know, I know, I know…ugh.
Well enjoyed that walk down memory lane…not! The only thing that gives me comfort is to know that this is a super flavorful recipe, especially when you are tired of regular old meatloaf!
You can see all my dinner recipes here...but below are a couple of my all time faves that you might like.
You can easily sub ground chicken for the ground beef in this easy one pan recipe! Meatballs and Pasta Skillet!
and this pot of yumminess can also use ground chicken in place of the beef! Chili Mac and Cheese Soup…like a soup and chili all mixed-up in one!
