From Cook's Country
Most low-fat meatloaf recipes start by using healthier, leaner meats like chicken or turkey, but we wanted a tender, flavorful low-fat meatloaf recipe with beef as the only meat. Working with 90 percent lean ground beef in our Low-Fat Meatloaf recipe reduced the fat grams by half, but the texture was a little dry and grainy. Replacing milk with tomato juice provided moisture and a tangy flavor boost; using soy sauce also added moisture and flavor with minimal fat and calories. We broke down sautéed mushrooms in the food processor so they could “disappear" into the meatloaf, adding the final amount of moisture needed.
Traditional meatloaf has 740 calories, 43 grams of fat, and 17 grams of saturated fat per 1 1/2-inch slice. Our Low-Fat Meatloaf has 280 calories, 13 grams of fat, and 5 grams of saturated fat per 1 1/2-inch slice.
