Growing up, I did NOT like meatloaf. Not sure why, but it just did not sound good to me. However, a couple years ago, I had a craving...for meatloaf. Yes, meatloaf. So I went on the search for The Best Meatloaf and I found it! My kids and husband eat this stuff up and almost always go back for seconds!
Here is the recipe...
The Best Meatloaf
1 1/2 lbs lean ground beef
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 dash ground black pepper
1 cup plain bread crumbs
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup Heinz 57 steak sauce
1 onion, chopped
1/2 cup diced green bell pepper
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch loaf pan.
- In a mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, salt, egg, black pepper, and bread crumbs. Pour in the milk, 3 tablespoons of the steak sauce, onion, and green bell pepper. Combine.
- Place the mixture into the prepared loaf pan and shape into a loaf. Brush the top with the remaining steak sauce.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour or until done in the middle. Use a meat thermometer to make sure the center has reached at least 160 degrees. Let the meatloaf sit for 5 minutes before slicing.
Served here with mashed potatoes and sweet corn. :)
