One-Pot Meatloaf And Potatoes Recipe For The Ninja Cooking System

My family enjoys my meatloaf. I don’t make it much during the summer because turning on the oven heats up the house so much. So,  decided I wanted to try making a meatloaf in the Ninja Kitchen 3-in-1 Cooking System. Potatoes is something else we really enjoy but I don’t usually make in the summer, so I decided to throw them in the pot to. The potatoes came out nice and tender. The meatloaf was tender and moist. Everything cooked much faster then if I’d cooked it in the oven.  Here’s how I make One-Pot Meatloaf and Potatoes in the Ninja Cooking System.

Looks yummy. My mother made potaoes like yours with all her roasts before baked potatoes in skins became in. She called them baked. What is the correct term for them?

My family hates meatloaf. I, however, adore it with every fiber of my being. I’d scarf this in about a second!

Great way to get your meatloaf in the summer w/out heating up the house. I don’t know much about the Ninja system but now I’m intrigued.

Why do you add the water?

Reply
valmg August 7, 2017 - 8:29 am

I like a tiny bit of water in the pan to help things from sticking until the dish starts releasing its own juices.

We love meat loaf. I got my Ninja 4 in 1 for Christmas. I prepared several recipes from the Ninja cookbook and they were excellent. But was afraid I wouldn’t e Abel to make meat loafs. I went to Val’s recipes and there it was! You put more joy in my cooker. Thank you so much.

This sounds wonderful! I just received my Ninja so I’m a novice. Do you have any suggestion for cutting this recipe in half? Not the ingredients — I’m not that much of a novice LOL — but cook times./temperature./water in pan. So glad I found your page. Thank you.

Hmmmm. I’m not really sure. That Ninja 3-in-1 Cooking System cooks more quickly than a typical stove or oven. I don’t know that the cooking time would be shortened by a great amount but haven’t tried it to be sure.

You add -1/2 Cup BBQ Sauce
then
1/8 Cup of the same BBQ Sauce.

Is one of them supposed to be ketchup

Reply
valmg January 5, 2019 - 3:41 pm

No but you could switch one if you wanted to.

Is the meat setting on the rack or directly in the bowl of the slower cooker with the water. Or do you need a separate loaf pan

Reply
valmg March 11, 2019 - 6:12 am

Hi. After you shape the meatloaf it goes directly into the NInja’s cooking pot surrounded by the potatoes, no loaf pan needed.

Colleen March 26, 2019 - 5:45 pm

Do you cook with cover on or off?

Reply
valmg March 27, 2019 - 8:36 pm

Thanks for visiting! The cover should be on when cooking. I went back into the recipe and made sure that’s included in the steps now.

Do you have to peel the potatoes and half them or just wash and put them in the bottom?

Reply
valmg August 14, 2019 - 9:58 pm

Thanks for reading! I peeled them but you could probably just use them washed and unpeeled as well.
