I created this version of meatloaf becaus;e my husband's general response to the traditional American and Irish dishes that I grew up with is that they taste great, but would probably be better with Asian flavors —bklynforager
What You'll Need

fish sauce, or nam pla

In a large saute pan, heat oil over medium heat. Saute onions and leeks until soft and fragrant. Add lemongrass, oyster sauce and fish sauce and continue to saute for another 3-5 minutes.
Combine ketchup and curry paste, stirring well with a whisk. Reserve 2 1/2 tablespoons ketchup mixture.
Combine remaining ketchup mixture with beef, onion mixture, salt and pepper, bread crumbs and egg.
