Pairing with meat loaf

#1 Post by Todd F r e n c h » February 16th, 2009, 1:04 pm

I'm sure you've all done it - we have, too. Tonight's recipe from Bon Apetit calls for some ketchup and hoisin sauce in the mixture, so there's some zest going on for sure. Normally we'd go for a Bordeaux blend if it was more neutral, but it sounds like Zinfandel might be a good choice, perhaps?

Would a Rhone blend be overpowered by the main course?

Just say no to meatloaf.
It's not easy being drunk all the time. Everyone would be doing it if it were easy.

Not everybody has steak each evening, Bill...

My wife adores meatloaf, and she is the cook, ergo...

Big fan of homemade meatloaf here. It has an 'Italian' twist. (what a shock).

With yours I would do a Pax type of Syrah or a Zin. With mine, a cab (another shock).

Have fun.

What do they put in meatloaf south of the Mason Dixon, roadkill?

Possum.

Meatloaf rocks......all this poor plantain slinger can afford in these turbulent, sub-prime mortgaged, messy times. Todd, try one of the 07 Cotes du Rhone that Brad Trent or Cris W. have been touting these days. The Domaine de la Garrigue is a 100% Syrah CdR.

Even though I do a 50/50 beef/turkey mix, the gravy is the braising liquid from my short ribs.

Plantain slinger??? The visual on that is a little disturbing Jorge.

Rhones, Rhone-ish and zinfandel with meat loaf. Especially if it has hoisin in it. Sounds good. Did I miss the link?

Well, the meat loaf was fantastic - I'm sitting here with a giant gut filled with ground beef, and Scherrer OMV Zinfandel was a perfect pairing.

Good thing I have such great feedback here to guide me when I ask for it.

I hadn't had meatloaf in years. On my 4 hour drive back home from Unified a couple of weeks ago, I stopped at Pea Soup Anderson's. I was semi-hung over, and getting really sleepy. I had meat loaf and black coffee. A better cure I could not have had.
