I’m very impressed. My mom made pork meatloaf last week using Mark Bittman’s recipe (below), with 2lb pork, a giant onion instead of a small one, a giant carrot instead of a small one, and some extra greens. For spices, she used 1.5 tbsp soy sauce, 1/2 tsp cumin, salt, and pepper. She sauteed the vegetables very briefly.
It tasted like baozi filling and was nice and soft. Nora and her cousins all loved it. The quality of the pork, which she got from a meat market near my house, probably made a huge difference.
