First, prepare the filling for the roll. Pour 80 grams of walnuts into the chopper bowl, put 3-4 cloves of garlic, 120 grams of already baked pumpkin, half a teaspoon of red hot pepper and salt to taste. Grind everything until smooth. Also, the filling can be twisted through a meat grinder. The filling is ready.
Cooking meat for meatloaf. We need about 1 kilogram of meat. Wash meat and dry with paper towels. We use beef, but you can also take pork.
We cut the meat along the entire length so that the thickness of the meat layer is about one centimeter. As you cut, unfold a piece of meat and continue to cut. You should get a rectangular layer of meat of approximately the same thickness.
For roll, it is advisable to choose tender meat without connective tissue. We beat off the resulting layer of meat with a hammer for meat on one side. The meat is salted to taste over the entire surface. Good pepper.
On the prepared meat, spread the pumpkin stuffing with nuts. Distribute the filling evenly over the entire piece of meat. Roll the meat tightly on the short side. We knit the roll with culinary thread so that it holds its shape.
Put the prepared roll in a baking sleeve. We tie the sleeve on all sides. We put everything in a preheated oven to 180 degrees. Bake for about 45-50 minutes.
From the baked and cooled roll, carefully remove the culinary thread. Before cutting the roll, it is advisable to let a couple of hours lie in the refrigerator.
We cut the meatloaf into portions and serve. The meatloaf stuffed with pumpkin and nuts turned out to be very tasty and satisfying. Delicate pumpkin with nuts is perfect for baked meat and gives the roll a beautiful and appetizing cut.
