Mistakes that might Spoil Your Meatloaf  
So, you are ready to make the meatloaf after the brief discussion above. But to cook it perfectly and get the special taste out of it, you need to follow some easy and few gems of advice to get the meatloaf moist free. Follow the recommendations below. 


Not Including the Fat  
Determining the proper amount of texture and lean or fat meat ratio, you need to decide the amount ratio in quick succession. The fat in the meatloaf creates liquid, and as a result, the meatloaf becomes moist. Check the recommendations for fat below.
  • · The ratio of 70 to 80 percent meat and 20 to 30 percent of fat is acceptable
  • · Expert recommends using 30 percent of fat
  • · Make sure your meatloaf gets the proper juicy and greasy flavor
  • · Leaner meat contains less fat, so add more liquid to replace it with meat juices

Not including Cooked Vegetables  
Yes, the recipes we have discussed above are all about meatloaf, and you might be wondering why we are referring you to add vegetables. Vegetables have roles in meatloaf recipe. Vegetables add moisture and flavor to your recipe. You can use raw veggies to bring variations in flavor.
  • · You can use carrots and green vegetables that you can eat raw
  • · These colorful and tasty veggies will bring variations in your meatloaf
  • · If you are reluctant to use veggies, just cut onions or similar veggies in small pieces
  • · Cutting small pieces will make veggies unrecognizable
Ignoring the Idea of Soaking the Bread beforehand  
Bread is the essential part of meatloaf. Most of the meatloaf recipe includes breadcrumbs, but the whole bread is also similarly used in meatloaf. It helps to take away all the moisture from meatloaf and binds the meat together. For moist meatloaf, soak the bread in milk and blend them together in the mixture.
 
Using the Meat before it’s Properly Seasoned  
Without proper seasoning, meatloaf is obviously just a plain raw spicy meat. You don’t find the taste or features that you expect from a meatloaf recipe without proper seasoning. You need to be judgmental and predicting the right amount of salt and pepper is a bit difficult task.
  • · Season the meatloaf with salt and pepper before mixing it with ingredients
  • · Adding dried herbs or spices will cover up the seasoning a bit

 
Not Leaving the Meat for Some Time  
If you can't resist your tempt to have the cooked meatloaf soon, then I should tell you that you need to wait a bit of moment. During the sitting time and right after cooking, meat consumes required moisture into its surface. If you start to slice the loaf with no time to give it rest, you will get the dry meatloaf.
  • · Keep the meatloaf rest for at least five minutes before cutting it

The above methods and recommendations will help you make it perfectly. To make your meatloaf recipe perfect and flawless, you need to consider the above suggestions in mind, every time you make it.
