Oct 21: Bahn Mi; Red Wine and Mushroom Meatloaf with Butter Soy Pearl Onions and Sugar Snap Peas

Lunch

A fairly frustrating and unsuccessful morning led us back to Pho Saigon 1 on our way home for their excellent Bahn Mi for $8.50 with tax and tip.

Dinner

Part two of the Red Wine and Mushroom Meatloaf, but better because frying the slices off in butter creates a lot of maillard reaction on the surface, which increases the flavor.

Tonight we paired the meatloaf with a side created by Foodie Greg: pearl onions and sugar snap pease sautéed in butter and soy. Yum. Butter and soy is one of the simplest dressings, but one of the most flavorful.

  • The meatloaf is $6.71 per serve
  • The frozen pearl onions were $1.69 or 85c per serve
  • Sugar snap peas were $3.99 but we only used half, or $1.00 per serve
  • The butter is $3.99 per block, and we used about 3/8 for two serves, or 75c per serve
  • Add 10c for seasoning.

The fried-off meatloaf was excellent with that crusty outside, and the butter/soy pearl onions and sugar snap peas were particularly flavorsome and a great pairing with the meatloaf for $9.41 per serve.
