But not just any MEAT LOAF, this loaf is loaded with the flavors of that Red Rooster labeled sauce, SRIRACHA!
Yesterday I did a post of a Sriracha Ketchup that I made. 6 cups, jarred and canned to last a year (but will be gone faster). Much as I love Sriracha as bottled, I am finding all new love for this Sriracha Ketchup! All the heat and spicy flavor of the original with a little vinegar tang, honey sweet and Earthy Worcestershire Sauce spread through the all new sauce.
I really made this just so I could have a cold meatloaf sandwich. I started with a fresh made loaf of Garlic Parmesan bread, made easy in a bread machine). While the bread machine was whirring away, I made the Sriracha Ketchup! While that was simmering, I made the meatloaf. And at Midnight, there I was making my very favorite refrigerator raid snack... Heaven!
As to the MeatLoaf, WOW indeed. Just packed with the spicy heat of Sriracha. But with all the other flavors mixed in this simple meatloaf is transformed into something amazing!
Not for the faint of heart, this does have a memorable punch of spice. Just what I wanted!
