Total Time: 2 hours 5 minutes
Servings: 4


  • Salt and Pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 small onions, peeled and quartered
  • 2 cups blackberries, use fresh or frozen (if using frozen, thaw before using)
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 pound ground pork
  • 1/2 pound ground veal
  • 1/2 cup yellow onion, diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 3 pieces good country bread, crusts removed, torn into small pieces


  • Put the 1st seven ingredients in a blender or food processor and puree until nice and smooth. If you want the sauce extra smooth and don’t want the blackberry seeds, pour the sauce into a mesh strainer (don’t forget to put a bowl under the strainer!), and with a spatula push the sauce through the strainer. If you’re super fancy, you can use a china hat or chinoise strainer.
  • Once the sauce is strained, add it to a small saucepan and cook over medium-low heat for about 15-20 minutes. You want the sauce to be dark and really thick. Stir and remove from heat.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. It’s time to get “hands on” with your meat. Combine all your meat in to a large bowl, and with clean hands (you also might want to remove any rings), mix all the meat together. Place the meat mixture in a 5 x 9 loaf pan. Pour about 1/2 cup of the bbq sauce over the top of the meatloaf. Bake for 1 – 1 ½ hours until just cooked through.
  • Let the meatloaf cool for about 5 minutes. While the meatloaf is cooling warm up the rest of the sauce. Drizzle some over the meatloaf. 
  • Cut the meatloaf into slices and serve with sauce on the side.
