I took the Chinese Dumpling filling and
made it into this delicious meat loaf!
1 cup finely chopped Napa cabbage or Bok Choy
1 lb. lean ground pork (or a mixture of pork and beef)
2 Tbsp. light soy sauce
2 Tbsp. dry sherry
1 tsp. freshly grated ginger
1/2 tsp. ground white pepper
1 Tbsp. sesame oil
1/2 tsp. MSG (optional)
Pinch of sugar
1 Tbsp. chopped green onion
1 egg white
1 Tbsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. salt
4 Tbsp. medium chopped bamboo shoots or water chestnuts (optional)
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 Cup fresh bread crumbs
1/2 Cup to 1 Cup of spicy barbecue sauce (use low carb if you want this to healthier for diabetics)
ketchup to spread on top
Sprinkle salt on chopped cabbage and let sit in a colander for 30 min. Squeeze dry (either by hand or in a potato ricer) and place into bowl. Add all of the remaining ingredients and mix well. Also add a splash of Chinese garlic chili paste, to taste.
Form in loaf pan. Spread ketchup on the top.
Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for about an hour. Use an oven thermometer to make sure meat is at least 155 degrees.
