Default Meat Loaf in oven or on stove top

Of course, the traditional way to prepare a meat loaf is in the oven.
But I've heard of some people making it on the stove like a pot roast.
Have you ever made it that way?

Why? This sounds like a question posted a couple of weeks ago, about making
french fries on the BBQ. Experimentation is good, but I think that in this
case, the time would be better spent at the library, browsing cookbooks
you've never met.

I've never tried it. I've heard of some people doing meatloaf in a crock
pot. Never tried that, either.

This is a little OT but is it wrong to use cherry saw dust instead of bread
crumbs?

Depends on what you're making. I can see cherry saw dust going nicely with
venison or duck. Might be a bit strong for chicken, though. I'd use oak for
that.

Hmm. I seem to remember that some high-fiber breads used to contain
wood fiber. You're just skipping the flour. Try it, but not more than
about 2-3 tablespoons. I'd probably mix it with the meat rather than
soaking it with the milk and egg first. It might clump together and
start to form a board or something.

My mother used to make a recipe similar to this. I plan on giving this
newly found recipe a try later this week.

As to meat loaf falling apart, it's best to let the meat loaf rest a
few minutes before removing from the pan and cutting.

I think of meat loaf as a dry roasted item. When you make a pot roast, on
the stove top or in the oven, it is braised. That it, you brown the meat,
add liquid, and slow cook it. The idea is to let the moist heat dissolved
the tough connective tissue and turn a less expensive, tough cut into
something tender and flavorful. Grinding the meat for meat loaf
accomplishes the tenderizing. Dry roasting something on the stove seems at
best inefficient and probably dangerous as it would require constant
attention.

I am aware of someone who cooks meat loaf in a pressure cooker. I find that
unappealing as it doesn't allow for any browning and probably yields a
ghastly gray lump of meat. Rather than making a meatloaf in liquid on the
stove top, I would probably just make meatballs - same thing, but you can
brown them first which makes them more attractive and more flavorful. Just
my opinion.

I like it better with brown gravy.

You can make the gravy with the pan drippings

"Salisbury steak" or "Danish meat patties" (recipe on request) can be
sautéed, fried, or cooked this way, though often times they are
"broiled" or baked. The sauté or fry method allows for the making of an
quick and easy & tasty sauce.

One time i was making meat loaf and half way through the process got
distracted, forgot what i was doing and went back to finish and made
hamburgers with the meat loaf mix, fried them up in a pan and served on
a toasted bun with lettuce, mayo, sliced red onion & tomato. Was very
good.
