 Ingredients List

  • -------------------------------SEASONING MIX-------------------------------
  • 2 Bay leaves
  • 1 ts Salt
  • 1/2 ts Cayenne pepper
  • 1 ts Black pepper
  • 1/2 ts White pepper
  • 1/2 ts Ground cumin
  • 1/2 ts Ground nutmeg


2 tb Unsalted butter
3/4 c Finely chopped onions
1/2 c Finely chopped celery
1/2 c Finely chopped bell pepper
1/4 c Finely chopped green onions
2 ts Minced garlic
1/2 ts Tabasco sauce
1 tb Worcestershire sauce
1/2 c Evaporated milk
1/2 c Catsup

1 1/2 lb Ground beef
1/2 lb Ground pork
2 Eggs, lightly beaten
1 c Very fine dry bread crumbs

Combine the seasoning mix ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.

Melt the butter in a 1 quart saucepan over medium heat. Add the onions,
celery, bell peppers, green onions, garlic, Tabasco, Worcestershire and
seasoning mix. Saute until mixture starts sticking excessively, about 6
minutes, stirring occasionally and scraping the pan bottom well. Stir in
the milk and catsup. Continue cooking for about 2 minutes, stirring
occasionally. Remove from heat and allow mixture to cool to room

Place the ground beef and pork in an ungreased 13 by 9 backing pan. Add the
eggs, the cooked vegetable mixture (removing the bay leaves) and the bread
crumbs. Mix by hand until thoroughly combined. In the center of the pan,
shape the mixture into a loaf that is about 1 1/2 inches high, 6 inches
wide and 12 inches long. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 25 minutes, then
raise heat to 400 degrees and continue cooking until done, about 35 minutes
longer. Serve immediately as is or with "Very Hot Cajun Sauce for Beef"
(separate recipe).

Adapted from Chef Paul Prudhomme's "Louisiana Kitchen". (hot spice level
reduced by us, but otherwise unchanged.)
