2 hr


6 Person


      • 1 cup chopped onion
      • 2 celery ribs, cut into 1/4-inch dice
      • 1 carrot, cut into 1/4-inch dice
      • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
      • 3 teaspoons vegetable oil
      • 3/4 cup fine fresh bread crumbs
      • 1/2 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
      • 1 large egg
      • 2 tablespoons ketchup
      • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
      • 2 teaspoons salt
      • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
      • 1 3/4 lb ground buffalo
      • 6 shallots, cut into 1/3-inch wedges
      • 6 plum tomatoes, each cut into 6 wedges
      • 1/3 cup water


Preheat oven to 375°F.
Cook onion, celery, carrot, and garlic in 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over moderate heat until onion is softened. Transfer to a large bowl and stir in bread crumbs, parsley, egg, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. Stir in buffalo (do not overmix) and form mixture into a 10- by 4-inch oval loaf in a large shallow metal baking pan. Toss shallots and tomatoes with remaining teaspoon oil and salt and pepper to taste, then scatter around meat loaf. Bake in middle of oven 1 hour and 10 minutes, or until a thermometer inserted 2 inches into center registers 160°F. Transfer meat loaf and vegetables to a platter and let stand 10 minutes.

While meat loaf is standing, deglaze baking pan with water over moderate heat, scraping up brown bits, and pour through a fine sieve into a bowl.

Serve meat loaf with shallots, tomatoes, and sauce.
