Put ground beef in large bowl.


Add in the onions, peppers, and crackers.


Add in salt, pepper, cumin and 1 minced clove of garlic.


Gently mix thoroughly.


Mold the meatloaf on a tinfoil lined baking sheet. Try to make it the size and shape of a red brick. Try not to pack it down too hard.


Add your potato to the pan and let it cook next to the meatloaf.


Cook about 1 hour until the internal temp of the meatloaf is 165 degrees.


Let the meatloaf rest for ten minutes before serving. Cut into 4 equal slices, 1 slice per serving.

Green Beans

Boil 8 cups water in a large size sauce pan with some salt.


Add in 7 cups green beans per serving and cook for 5 minutes.


Drain water after 5 minutes and add 4 teaspoon butter and 1 clove minced garlic.


Add salt and pepper to taste.


Cook over medium heat until green beans are tender. About 5 minutes.


To serve, plate one slice of the meatloaf, 1/4 cup of the potatoes, and 1 cup of green beans. Top the potato with a teaspoon of butter and feel free to use up to 2 teaspoons of yellow or spicy brown mustard on the meatloaf.
