  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, finely chopped (about a cup)
  • 1 stalk celery, finely chopped
  • 1 carrot, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley (or 1 tablespoon fresh, finely chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream (optional)
  • 1/4 cup grilling sauce (such as Stonewall Kitchen's Maple Chipotle Grille Sauce), barbecue sauce or ketchup
  • 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup panko or other unflavored bread crumbs
  • 3 very thin slices of prosciutto or bacon

Serves 4 to 6

  1. Preheat the oven to 375F.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. When hot, add the onion, celery, carrot and dried herbs. (If using fresh parsley, add this to the meat mixture in step 5.)
  3. Cook the vegetables, stirring occasionally, until they are soft and just starting to brown, about 7 to 10 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, crack the egg into a medium bowl and whisk it lightly with a fork. Add the cream (if using), the grilling sauce, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, ground beef and bread crumbs. Use your hands or a wooden spoon to incorporate all of the ingredients.
  5. Add the cooked vegetables to the meat mixture and mix well again.
  6. Gather the meat into a mound and place it on a baking sheet with raised sides or in a baking pan. Form the meat into a rectangle, about 5 to 6 inches long and 4 inches wide.
  7. Lay the prosciutto or bacon slices across the top of the meat.
  8. Place the tray in the oven and bake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 165 to 170F. Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 5 minutes before slicing. Serve hot.

I tried this today (Pan Frying Fish) and it was great. The fish was Spanish Mackerel. Thanks for the video. Your presentation was very well done.
