Why Was Meatloaf Popular in the 1970s?

The 1970s marked a golden era for meatloaf, and its popularity can be attributed to a combination of factors that resonated with people at the time. Let’s delve into the reasons why meatloaf became such a beloved dish during this nostalgic decade.

Affordability and convenience played a significant role in meatloaf’s rise to stardom. As families grappled with budget constraints, meatloaf emerged as a cost-effective meal option. Ground beef, a key ingredient in meatloaf, was more affordable than other cuts of meat, making it accessible to a wider range of households. Moreover, meatloaf recipes often incorporated pantry staples like breadcrumbs or oats, which helped stretch the meat further without sacrificing flavor.

In addition to its budget-friendly nature, meatloaf held a special place in people’s hearts as a comfort food that evoked a sense of nostalgia. The 1970s witnessed a growing trend of seeking out traditional American dishes, and meatloaf perfectly fit the bill. Its wholesome and familiar flavors harkened back to home-cooked meals, reminding individuals of the comforting warmth and love associated with family dinners. Furthermore, the adaptability of meatloaf allowed for endless variations, making it an ideal canvas for personal touches and regional flavors.

Meatloaf’s versatility was yet another factor that contributed to its popularity. It could be served in numerous ways, accommodating different preferences and occasions. Sliced meatloaf, accompanied by a medley of vegetables and potatoes, made for a hearty and satisfying meal. Alternatively, chilled leftovers could be transformed into delectable sandwiches, providing a convenient and delicious option for lunch or a quick snack. This versatility made meatloaf a reliable and versatile choice, ensuring its place as a staple in many households.

Even today, meatloaf continues to captivate the hearts and taste buds of individuals across generations. Its enduring popularity can be attributed to its timeless qualities: affordability, comfort, and adaptability. Whether enjoyed as a cherished family recipe or reimagined with contemporary twists, meatloaf remains a beloved dish that pays homage to tradition while remaining versatile enough to suit modern tastes. So, the next time you savor a slice of meatloaf, you can appreciate its rich history and the role it played in bringing comfort and joy to countless dinner tables in the 1970s and beyond.

Meatloaf.

Meatloaf. It was the infamous meal that sparked dinner fights during the early days of my marriage. Growing up, I wasn’t exposed to meatloaf, and I couldn’t quite understand its fascination. But my husband, seemingly fueled by nostalgia, insisted that I make meatloaf for dinner time and time again.

Reluctantly, I embarked on a journey of experimenting with various meatloaf recipes over the years. However, they often fell short of expectations. Some turned out dry, lacking in flavor, and frankly, quite mundane. I couldn’t shake the feeling that a dish made from ground meat mixed with a few other ingredients, formed into a loaf shape, and baked simply wasn’t appealing enough.

Then, one day, my husband, growing weary of waiting for my perfect meatloaf, took matters into his own hands and decided to make it himself. I must admit, I wasn’t particularly enthused. It seemed like another predictable rendition of this supposedly beloved dish. But little did I know that this meatloaf would turn out to be a game-changer.

To my surprise, I decided to go all out for his birthday one year and attempt a stuffed meatloaf recipe. And oh boy, was it a revelation! The flavors melded together perfectly, and adding the stuffing took the dish to a whole new level. It was a hit, and we were all transported to meatloaf heaven. From that point on, I started making the stuffed meatloaf recipe at least once every two or three months, relishing in the joy it brought to our taste buds.

But then, the Instant Pot entered our lives and revolutionized our meatloaf experience. With the convenience and efficiency of the Instant Pot, we now indulge in the wonders of Instant Pot Meatloaf at least once a week. The pressure cooking method locks in the moisture, resulting in a tender and succulent meatloaf that leaves us craving more.

Nowadays, meatloaf has become a cherished staple in our weekly rotation of meals. The entire household eagerly awaits the day when this comforting and flavorful dish graces our dinner table. It’s incredible how a dish that once seemed dull and unappealing has transformed into a family favorite, bringing us together with every delicious bite.

So, the story’s moral is never to underestimate the power of a well-made meatloaf. It may have taken some time and experimentation, but now I can confidently say that meatloaf has won our hearts and taste buds, proving that even the humblest of dishes can hold the power to create moments of joy and culinary delight.

Enjoy the crispy edges the first time around, and then easily reheat the center to your liking for the second meal.

For an extra touch of flavor and texture, take a moment to indulge in the joy of sticky sauce. Simply place the meatloaf under the broiler until the sauce reaches the desired stickiness or even a hint of delightful “blackened” goodness. But be sure to watch it closely, as the broiler works its magic quickly.

In a separate small bowl, combine the ingredients for the Red Meatloaf Sauce, mixing until the brown sugar is incorporated into the rest.

 

Using the Saute function on the Instant Pot, heat it for one minute. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to the bottom of the pot.

Add the quartered potatoes, onions, and carrots to the Instant Pot. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Cook on saute for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally to coat the vegetables with the oil.

Add 1 cup of beef broth or water to the pot, then turn off the saute function.

 

Create a platform for the meatloaf by using aluminum foil (poke a few holes in it to allow juices to drain) or a steamer rack sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. This platform will hold the meatloaf and keep it elevated above the vegetables.

Shape the meatloaf into a round shape, ensuring there is space between the edges of the meatloaf and the Instant Pot. Place the meatloaf on top of the platform (foil or steamer rack) and adjust the potatoes, carrots, and onions to accommodate it.

When the cooking time is complete, perform a quick release of the pressure using the steam button.

How to Perfectly Glaze the Top of Your Meatloaf

Glazing the top of your meatloaf adds a mouthwatering caramelized touch that takes it to the next level. There are two methods to achieve this delicious glaze: using the CrispLid or broiling in the oven. Let’s dive into the details.

Method 1: Using the CrispLid

  1. Once your meatloaf is cooked in the Instant Pot, carefully remove it and place it on a baking sheet.
  2. Pour the remaining sauce over the top of the meatloaf, ensuring even coverage.
  3. Set up the CrispLid on top of the meatloaf, following the manufacturer’s instructions.
  4. Turn on the CrispLid and adjust the temperature and time according to the manufacturer’s guidelines. Keep a close eye on it, as the glaze will caramelize quickly.
  5. Allow the glaze to cook until it reaches the desired stickiness and caramelization.

Method 2: Broiling in the Oven

  1. Preheat your oven’s broiler function.
  2. Transfer the cooked meatloaf to a baking sheet and pour the remaining sauce over the top.
  3. Place the baking sheet with the meatloaf under the broiler, ensuring it is positioned in the middle rack of the oven.
  4. Keep a watchful eye on the meatloaf, as it will quickly go from perfectly glazed to burnt. It typically takes about 5 minutes to achieve the desired caramelization, but this can vary depending on your oven.
  5. Once the glaze has reached your preferred level of stickiness and caramelization, remove the baking sheet from the oven.

While your meatloaf is undergoing the glazing process, it’s the perfect time to tend to the potatoes and carrots that have been cooking alongside it.

  1. With the Instant Pot still turned off, carefully remove the potatoes and carrots from the pot using a slotted spoon or tongs.
  2. Don’t resist the temptation to taste one of the potatoes. The juices from the meatloaf infuse them with amazing flavor, making them irresistibly delicious.
  3. If desired, you can separate the carrots and potatoes. For mashed potatoes, transfer the potatoes to a large bowl and add some butter. Use a hand mixer or potato masher to achieve your desired texture. If the mashed potatoes are too thick, gradually add some broth or milk until you reach the desired consistency.

FAQs about Instant Pot Meatloaf:

Q: How long should I cook meatloaf in the Instant Pot? A: The cooking time for meatloaf in the Instant Pot can vary depending on the size and shape of your meatloaf. It is recommended to cook the meatloaf on high pressure for about 25 minutes. However, keep in mind that if your meatloaf is taller and more narrow, it may require additional cooking time. Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of the meatloaf, which should reach 160 degrees Fahrenheit. If needed, you can cook it for another 5-8 minutes to ensure it reaches the proper temperature.

Q: Can I make meatloaf without mashed potatoes? A: Absolutely! This Instant Pot Meatloaf recipe includes potatoes, onions, and carrots as the accompanying sides. However, if you prefer to make meatloaf without mashed potatoes, simply follow the recipe as instructed but omit the potatoes. The meatloaf will still turn out delicious and satisfying on its own.

Q: What is the best meat to use for meatloaf? A: The best meat for meatloaf can vary based on personal preference. A traditional mix often includes a combination of ground beef, pork, and veal. However, ground turkey or chicken can be used as a leaner alternative. The key is to choose a mix of meats with enough fat content to keep the meatloaf moist. Seasoning the meatloaf well with herbs, spices, and other flavorings is also important to enhance the taste.

Q: Any tips for this recipe? A: Certainly! Here are a few tips to enhance your Instant Pot Meatloaf experience:

  • Use smaller potatoes that don’t require quartering for added convenience.
  • Experiment with different sauces such as BBQ sauce or A1 Steak Sauce to create an ooey-gooey topping with a unique flavor twist.
  • Once you’re finished cooking, consider giving your Instant Pot a thorough cleaning using a guide specifically designed for that purpose.
  • Grating fresh cheese adds a burst of flavor and meltability to your dishes, making it a great choice for topping your meatloaf.

Q: How do I store leftover meatloaf? A: To store leftover meatloaf, allow it to cool to room temperature. Once cooled, wrap the meatloaf tightly with plastic wrap or aluminum foil and place it in an airtight container. Alternatively, you can use a resealable plastic bag, removing as much air as possible before sealing it. Store the meatloaf in the refrigerator for up to four days. For longer storage, you can freeze it for up to three months. When reheating, thaw the meatloaf in the refrigerator overnight and ensure it reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C) before serving.

Notes

Keep a few things in mind...use as close to 2 pounds of meat as you can. The more narrow and tall your pressure cooker meatloaf is the longer it will need to cook. I make mine wide--as wide as the instant pot with an allowance of about 1/2-inch all the way around.
