If you want something highly seasoned, this South African casserole is perfect. We had this (called meatloaf) in a South African restaurant in Charlottesville, Va. and thought it was terrific.
2 tsp Curry powder
1 tsp Ground ginger
1/4 tsp Cayenne pepper
2 tsp Sugar
1 tsp Turmeric
1 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Pepper
1 large Onion, coarsely cut
1 tbl Lemon juice
1 tbl Apricot jam
1 handf raisins
2 tbl Chutney
1 tbl Worcestershire
1 Tomato, finely diced
4 slc Bread
2 lb Ground beef
1 lg. Egg
3/4 cup Milk
1. Warm a heavy pot. Put in first 8 ingredients, warm thoroughly.
2. Remove from heat and add next 6 ingredients. Return to low heat and mix until bubbly.
3. Dampen and dice bread. Add to mixture and stir well.
4. Add ground beef and cook for 15 minutes.
5. Fill a shallow greased casserole dish with Baboti mixture.
6. Beat egg with milk. Add salt and pepper to taste. Pour over Baboti mixture.
7. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes (until custard is golden).
8. Serve with yellow rice and salad.
You can change this according to what you have on hand. I usually use 1/4 cup of chutney and omit the apricot jam.
