Tom McCall of Charlotte writes: “We recently ate dinner at Village Tavern at Southpark. I tried the grilled meatloaf and it was delicious. I’d like to know how they made it.”
When he was growing up, meatloaf was a favorite of Village Tavern CEO Scott Richardson. This recipe is an updated version of his mother’s meatloaf.
It’s certainly nothing like the ketchup- or tomato-doused meatloaf many of us knew as kids. Nope, this is company meatloaf for sure. Sliced thick, grilled and luxuriating in a gorgeous Madeira-infused cremini mushroom sauce, it is indeed a treat.
The mushroom sauce contains veal demi-glace from Williams-Sonoma. A jar of it will set you back $29.95, although you won’t need the whole jar. Still, that’s another reason to save this meatloaf for a dinner with people you really like.
