Meat Loaf

What You'll Need:

* 2 teaspoons canola oil
* 1 chopped medium sweet onion
* 12-ounce bottle beer
* 1 teaspoon dried thyme
* 1 teaspoon dry mustard
* 3/4 teaspoon salt
* 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
* 1 1/4 pounds 95%-lean ground beef
* 1 1/4 pounds 93%-lean ground turkey
* 1 cup fresh whole-wheat breadcrumbs
* 1/4 cup chopped parsley
* 1 large egg, lightly beaten
* 1 egg white, lightly beaten


Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Coat a loaf pan with cooking spray and set it aside. Place the onion in oil to sauté until it’s translucent and beginning to brown, approximately five minutes. Add the beer and increase the heat to high to bring it to a boil. Cook it until the liquid resembles syrup and reduces to about 3/4 cup (takes approximately 10 minutes). Transfer the liquid to a large bowl and stir in the seasonings; let this cool for at least 10 minutes.

Add the remaining ingredients and thoroughly combine the ingredients using clean hands. Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan and form it to resemble a loaf. Bake this in the oven until the internal temperature reaches 160 degree Fahrenheit which will take about 1 1/2 hours. Allow the meat loaf to rest for five minutes, drain off any liquid from the pan, slice, and enjoy.
