Ingredients and Preparation

Ingredients Measures
Olive oil 2 teaspoons
Garlic, minced 1 clove
Scallions, thinly sliced 6-8
White mushrooms, sliced 5 ounces
Bread crumbs ½ cup
Ground pork 1 pound
Lean ground beef ½ pound
Egg, lightly beaten 1
Flat-leaf parsley, chopped ¼ cup
Reduced-sodium vegetable stock ¼ cup
Salt ½ teaspoon
Freshly ground pepper to taste
Ketchup 1/3 cup
Worcestershire sauce 1 tablespoon
Onion powder ½ teaspoon

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Saute garlic, scallions, and mushrooms 5-6 minutes, until tender. Set aside and let cool slightly.
  3. Combine mushroom mixture, bread crumbs, pork, beef, egg, parsley, stock, salt, and pepper in a large mixing bowl.
