Un-boring your meatloaf with our Southern Mustard BBQ Beans.
• 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
• 1/2 Cup white onion, diced 1/4"

• 1lb ground pork
• 1/2 Cup breadcrumbs
Heat a skillet over medium low heat and add oil.
Sauté onion, garlic, and spices over medium low heat until onions have softened.
Transfer cooked vegetables to a mixing bowl.
Drain beans and set liquid aside. Add the drained beans to the vegetable mixture and stir.

Add the ground pork and breadcrumbs to the mixing bowl and stir.
Transfer the mixture to a loaf pan lined with parchment or foil and spread into a flat even layer.
Let the meatloaf rest at room temperature for 8-10 minutes.
After resting, bake meatloaf uncovered until reaching an internal temperature of 160oF. This should take approximately 40-50 minutes depending on shape of loaf.
Cool at room temperature for 10 minutes before removing from pan and slicing.
For the sauce:
• Reserved mustard sauce from beans

Whisk the brown sugar, cornstarch, and beer (or water) to the reserved mustard sauce from the beans. Simmer in a saucepan until thickened slightly, then serve over sliced meatloaf.
