This recipe was my great grandmother's and to this day everybody who tries it just loves it. The secret is the sauce: it is just the right balance of sweetness. Mmm it's just so yummy.

Very good and very easy to make. Like others, I did not use the water. Otherwise, I followed the recipe to the letter. One thing that was confusing was the back and forth between metric and english measurements. It should be 1 1/2 pounds of ground beef. And cook at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. I am thinking next time try a pork and beef mixture and use the coconut milk. Sounds wonderful!

  3. Add the milk until the mixture is very moist
  4. Form the mixture into a loaf shape and place in a baking/casserole dish big enough for the loaf to fit with additional room.
  5. Place into 180º pre-heated oven for 30 minutes. Then pour sauce over meatloaf ensuring the entire surface gets a coating of sauce and replace in oven for another 30 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and serve.
