250g 5% pork mince
250g 5% beef mince
1 beef oxo cube
4 teaspoons  barbecue rub – 2 syns
1 egg, beaten
8 slices bacon, fat removed
1 large onion, peeled and sliced
2 bell peppers, cut in half and deseeded
1 tin baked beans

BBQ Sauce:

500g passata
1 small onion, finely diced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
5 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1½ tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon barbecue rub – 1.5 syns
2 – 3 tablespoons sweetener
2 teaspoons dark soy sauce


To make the BBQ sauce… Sweat the onion in a saucepan with a little water until translucent, don’t let them go brown and burn you want them soft hence adding water.

Add all the other ingredients and bring to a boil, let simmer for 5 minutes. Either keep it chunky or blitz with a blender (allow to cool down before doing this stage).

Preheat oven to 160°C fan.

Line the sides of a loaf tin with the bacon so it is flapping over the top of the tin but touching the bottom of the inside of the tin, slightly overlapping each slice and alternating the slices with thickest part at the top then at the bottom so that its evenly covering the tin and set aside.

In a bowl mix together the mince, barbecue rub, egg and oxo cube until well combined.

Add half the mince mixture into the tin packing it down nice and tight and make a well in the centre bringing the mince up the sides along the bacon.

Fill the well with the baked beans, onion and lay the peppers across the top of the filling.

Add the remaining mince over the top and make sure the filling is nicely sealed in.

Fold the bacon over the top of the meatloaf making sure its all covered.

Cover with tin foil (shiny side down) and bake in the oven for 1 hour.

Take the meatloaf out the oven and remove the foil, at this point the meatloaf should have started to come away from the sides of the tin.

Carefully remove the meatloaf and place on a baking sheet, add the BBQ sauce on the top and cover the sides too (I use a pastry brush to do this but a knife or back of a spoon will do).

Place the meatloaf back in the oven for 15 minutes until the BBQ sauce has gone sticky and the juices run clear from the meat.
Slice up and serve with salad or vegetables.
