Korean Fusion Meatloaf: A Flavorful Adventure!

Allow me to share a personal journey intertwined with flavors and memories that have shaped this unique recipe. Having lived in Southern California for years, my family and I were immersed in a vibrant culinary landscape, where diverse flavors from around the world danced on our taste buds. Among these, Korean cuisine held a special place in our hearts, with its bold and complex flavors leaving an indelible mark on our palates.

One of our fondest memories was savoring the rich and tangy taste of kimchi, a staple in Korean cuisine, and delighting in the fiery kick of spicy gochujang sauce. Even after moving to Colorado, a place known for its rugged landscapes rather than its culinary diversity, our love for Korean flavors endured. We found ourselves craving the distinct taste of kimchi and the warmth of gochujang, yearning to recreate those unforgettable flavors in our own kitchen.

Thus, this Korean Fusion Meatloaf was bornβ€”a delicious marriage of traditional American comfort food with the vibrant flavors of Korea. With each bite, you’ll experience the tangy complexity of kimchi and the fiery kick of gochujang, transporting you to a culinary crossroads where East meets West. It’s a recipe that pays homage to our culinary journey, celebrating the fusion of cultures and the joy of sharing flavors that transcend borders.

For the Meatloaf:

For the Sauce:

  • 4 tablespoons gochujang chili paste
  • 1 tablespoon water


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius). Grease two mini loaf pans to prevent sticking.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, minced garlic, diced kimchi, egg, panko bread crumbs, and Revolution Barbecue Texas Beef BBQ Rub. Mix thoroughly until all ingredients are evenly distributed.
  • Divide the meatloaf mixture evenly between the prepared mini loaf pans, shaping them into compact loaves. Place the pans in the preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes.
  • While the meatloaf is baking, it's time to whip up the spicy gochujang sauce. In a small bowl, mix the gochujang with the water until smooth. Set aside.
  • After 20 minutes of baking, remove the meatloaf from the oven. Carefully spread the gochujang sauce over the top of each meatloaf, creating a spicy glaze. Raise the oven temperature to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celsius), then return the pans to the oven and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes, or until the meatloaf is cooked through and the glaze is caramelized.
  • Once done, remove the meatloaves from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes. Slice them into thick, hearty portions and serve hot.
  • For an extra burst of flavor and visual appeal, garnish your Korean Fusion Meatloaf with a sprinkle of chopped green onions and sesame seeds.
