The meatloaf itself was very tasty and sliced very neatly, however the sauce was overly sweet which detracted from the overall dish and overwhelmed the ginger flavour. Next time I will cut the sugar in half and see how we go. - 14 Sep 2009


Really nice. I put in half the sugar as suggested below but will put in even less next time as it was still a little sweet. Very easy and flavoursome. - 05 Feb 2013
