Thread: Meat Loaf Q

    Default Meat Loaf Q


    From another group, on someone's mother's meatloaf: "I do remember her
    cautioning not to over-mix the mixture, to avoid toughness."

    Why would that cause toughness? Or is this a kitchen UL?

    It compacts the mixture. Like with muffins.

    I know that the secret to a tender meatball is to carefully combine the
    mixture with your hands. Over mixing really does make them tough. So a
    meatloaf is just a huge meatball. I am not sure why, but it does get tough
    if you overmix.

    Not enough air is left between the strands of ground meat - or something
    like that. As others have mentioned, it's due to 'over working' the
    mixture. Think of it as concrete - when all the air is removed - it
    becomes a piece of solid rock <g>. Something like that, but I'm no pro
    <g>.

    Perhaps the technical answer is to be found at that "Cooking For
    Engineers" site I ran across once.

    I suspect UL. How can ground meat be tough?

    But that doesn't mean "tough", just compact.
