Mini Meat Loaves on the Braai: The Perfect Glaze Recipe

If you had to choose between mini meat loaves or grilled steaks, which dish do you gravitate towards? Well, we’ll take a lucky guess that you tend to opt for the steak!

However, many don’t consider (or realise!) that meat loaf can be a crowd-pleasing dish. With the help of some South African flavours and methods, you can prepare your individual mini meat loaves on the braai for a dish that will impress.

And like all good recipes, there’s a magic ingredient that takes it from ordinary to extraordinary. In this case, it’s our glaze recipe (and of course, quality Van Wyngaardt meat!). The good news is that we sell a wide range of already-prepared individual meat loaves, so that saves you a couple of steps in any recipe you try out.


The Perfect Glaze for Your Mini Meat Loaves on the Braai


  • 6 mini meat loaves
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2/3 tbsp cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp strong mustard
  • ½ tsp hot sauce of your choice


  • Place your mini meat loaves on heavy-duty aluminium foil.
  • Heat your grill until it reaches medium heat (about 400°F or 200°C ).
  • Place individual meat loaves on your grill (as many as will fit on your grill).
  • While you’re waiting for the mini loaves to form a crust, mix all glaze ingredients into a small bowl. Simmer over medium heat until it has thickened.
  • Once mini meat loaves form a crust, brush the glaze until each loaf is evenly covered. The secret to cooking the perfect meat loaf is to only add the glaze once it has formed a crust.
  • Optional; take loaves off the grill and cut into slices, then place back on the grill and brush a second coat of glaze on each slice for some extra flavour.

As simple as pie. Or shall we say; as a meat loaf. Grill your mini meat loaves on the braai, add our easy and delicious glaze, and you’ll never want to eat meat loaf any other way. The tangy taste is sure to have you and your customers craving more.
