How to Make It

Step 1

Combine tomato, onion, jalapeño, garlic and salt in a medium bowl; mix well (To make salsa ahead, prepare to this point; cover with plastic wrap and chill, for up to 1 day, until ready to serve.) Stir in cilantro.

Step 2

Prepare grill. Put ground beef, tomato sauce, bread crumbs and egg whites in a large bowl. Mix with hands or a wooden spoon until well blended. Divide mixture into 4 portions and pat into ovals about 2/3 inch thick.

Step 3

Grill meat loaves over medium flame, turning once or twice, until nicely charred and cooked through, about 15 minutes.

Step 4

While meat cooks, slice potatoes 1/4 inch thick; rinse and pat dry. Brush potato slices on both sides with olive oil and grill, turning once, until golden and crisp, about 12 minutes. Sprinkle with salt.

Step 5

Spoon salsa on loaves; serve with potato slices.

I made the recipe as described. It was a quick weeknight meal for the summer. If I wanted to make it even quicker, I might buy some fresh salsa instead of making it. I served it with grilled zucchini slices (tossed with olive oil, salt & pepper). I'll probably make it again just because it was easy & tasty.
