Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a small loaf pan.
In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, uncooked rice, onion, bell pepper, garlic, salt, pepper, herbs, Worcestershire sauce, egg, ketchup, milk, and bread crumbs. Using your clean hands (removing any rings), mix together all the ingredients.
Mix thoroughly but lightly, being careful not to pack the meat too much. NOTE: This meatloaf mixture will be moister than most recipes at this point. The extra liquid is needed for the rice to absorb while cooking.
Place in prepared loaf pan. Bake 30 to 40 minutes or until meatloaf reaches an internal temperature of 160°F (do not overcook or it will be dry).
Remove from oven and let the meatloaf rest for 15 minutes before serving.
Hi! Cooking and caring have been two aspects of my life in full flush since I can remember. As a younger lady I made my first cook book under the name Lolaji, and now it is with great interest I share my love of gastronomy through this online recipe site. You are warmly welcomed to share any recipes, secret sauces or otherwise that you feel will benefit the worldwide community of meatloaf lovers. :) Thank you for stopping by! Look forward to creating an incredible collection of recipes with you.
