german roast

I have a dish my father always called "german roast" it looks like a meatloaf and tastes like one but it has no bread crumbs or ketchup, he was based in germany in the 1970s when he was in the army.

The dish is minced beef (you can also add pork) chopped onion, mixed herbs, salt and pepper with egg to bind it together, its a really simple dish but you can cheat by missing the mixed herbs and adding stuffing mix instead (my dad showed me the cheats method) you have to mix it together well, if i use 2lb of mince id use 2 small onions, 2 small packets of stuffing and 2 eggs plus salt and pepper then cook it in a loaf tin packed in well for about an hour and a half, covering the tin with foil at about 140 degrees, gas 3-4.

It sounds a really boring dish but it tastes amazing and can also be used to make burgers or meat balls. When i was a child my 3 brothers and 2 sisters would call this meatloaf but if my dad heard us we would get told off because its not american its german!
