BBQ Rice Meatloaf



BBQ Rice Meatloaf


My hubby and I have never really liked meatloaf. That is, until I discovered this BBQ version – it turns out that it was the ketchup that was ruining it for us. Just wait until your family smells this P90x-friendly recipe cooking! I had to fend my husband and a swarm of hungry children off with a fork! lol =)

Ingredients:

  • 1.15 lb extra-lean ground beef or ground turkey (approx – just get a package that has a little more than a pound in it)
  • 1 cup cooked brown rice
  • 1 egg white
  • 4 Tb. BBQ sauce (I use Bullseye Original Flavor)
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper (to taste)
  • Worcestershire (to taste)

Cook rice according to package directions. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine beef, rice, onion powder, garlic powder, and 1 Tb. of BBQ sauce. Sprinkle with Worcestershire, salt, and pepper. Mix well and press into loaf pan. Cover with pepper. Cover with tin foil, and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover, and drain fat. Spread with remaining 3 Tb. of BBQ sauce, and bake for an additional 15 minutes uncovered.

P90x Portion Approach Servings:

1/2 of this recipe is 3 protein servings, 1/2 carb serving, and 1 condiment serving.

P.S. If you have an extra condiment serving to spare, this is incredible with more BBQ sauce served on the side for dipping!

P.P.S. Want to blow your own mind? Try adding 3 oz. of shredded Mozzarella cheese in a layer in the center, like they did here – that would add 1 dairy serving!

    This was absolutely delicious! We had already had our carb serving for the day so omitted it and we didn’t miss the rice at all! I think this will be a staple in our house…even my 5 kids gobbled it down, a rarity around here ;). Thanks CJ!

      Oops, guess I forgot to list it. Just mix it in with everything else! =)

    this was actually really good! it was a little bland (im not good at figuring out how much worcestershire, salt, and pepper to add for taste) so we did use a little extra sauce for dipping. But even my 17 month old daughter loved it and i can hardly get her to eat meat.

      Hey, thanks for the feedback, Lindsey! I agree that this does come out a little bland without a little extra sauce for dipping – historically I’ve included some BBQ in the meat itself, which helps that, but I didn’t want to go over 1 condiment portion per serving for the base recipe. I think you are on the right track just adding a bit more sauce for dipping. And based on your comment I’ve decided to start measuring out the exact amounts in my “to taste” salt and pepper – at least that way I can give you an idea of how I seasoned it so you have a starting point. =) Thanks for commenting! – CJ =)
