Burger Beast's BEAST-loaf Recipe

When you think of burgers, do you think of Burger Beast? Or what about other beef-centric dishes like meatloaf? Well then, let me introduce you to Burger Beast’s meatloaf, or as it’s known around in these parts, my BEAST-loaf!

I love meatloaf as much as the next guy, but one day I found myself in the kitchen with a bunch of ground beef and my signature Guava Sriracha Ketchup sauce. It had been a while since I had eaten or made meatloaf, and I figured this could be a match made in heaven. A few friends were coming over for dinner that night, so they were the first folks to try the BEAST-loaf, as I so lovingly named it. They went gaga over it, and I, who am normally overly critical of my own cooking, enjoyed it too.

When Neuelane, the folks from the Taste of Miami cookbook approached me about getting involved with a Covid-19 relief project, I said yes. They asked me to write the foreward for the cookbook which I did. I thought it was the perfect opportunity to unleash my BEAST-loaf recipe on the world. All proceeds from the Taste of Miami cookbook (buy yours here) benefit the employees of all the restaurants who submit recipes.

One thing not included in the Taste of Miami recipe was my suggestion for making a sandwich out of a BEAST-loaf slice. What I’m saying is, make sure you read the notes. And when you make the BEAST-loaf, please send pics!

  4. Move the mixture to a cutting board and shape to your liking, preferably a little bit taller if you’re going the sandwich route
  5. Be careful when sliding the BEAST-loaf onto a cookie sheet
  6. Take another 1/2 cup of Guava Sriracha Ketchup  and spoon it over the beauty

  9. Let it rest for 10 minutes before digging in.

Notes

When I make the 2lb BEAST-loaf, it’s moister cause I cut then sear the slices of the loaf on a pan. Why? To make sandwiches of course!

The perfect BEAST-loaf sandwich has white untoasted bread, a thick slice of American cheese, and a healthy slathering of mayo on the bottom bread.

If you’re going to eat as a meatloaf then I’d suggest you use the same amount of ingredients and add one extra pound of ground beef.
