Original recipe yields 6 servings



  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Combine the sirloin, tomato, mushrooms, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, orange bell pepper, garlic, green onion, 1/2 cup bread crumbs, egg, cilantro, and Worcestershire sauce in a large mixing bowl; mix together with your hands until evenly incorporated. Shape the mixture into a cylinder about the size of a loaf pan. Create a center channel in the loaf; load the goat cheese and diced habanero pepper into the middle of the channel and roll it up, folding the cheese and pepper into the center of the loaf. Place the loaf into a loaf pan. Sprinkle 1/4 cup bread crumbs over the top of the loaf. Place the Cheddar cheese slices around the edges of the pan. Arrange the jalapeno pepper slices on the top of the loaf.
  3. Bake the meat loaf in the preheated oven until cooked completely through and no longer pink, about 1 hour. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Allow to rest 7 to 10 minutes before slicing to serve.

This meatloaf is amazing. The only thing I modified was that I sautéed the onions, mushrooms, and garlic first and added tomato sauce instead of diced tomatoes simply because I didn't have any on hand.

I made this with one small finely-diced green bell pepper which was plenty, and added the Cheddar in with the goat cheese. I also didn't bother to sprinkle bread crumbs over the top of the loaf. It was too spicy for me but Husband loved it - so nice to have a meatloaf recipe that's a bit different from the norm. Thanks, AnimalsTasteGood!



I had high hopes for this recipe, but alas, I was very disappointed. The amount of vegetable additions totally overwhelmed the meatloaf. It was more like a veggie loaf. Be sure to get a very fine dice on your vegetables.
