Good Old Diner Meatloaf

Recipe by Yia Yia
READY IN: 1hr 10mins




  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, combine beef, pork, beef broth, onion, 1-2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce, bread crumbs, egg, garlic, olive oil, salt, pepper and oregano.
  • Don't overmix, but combine it well (hands work the best).
  • Transfer meat to a shallow baking pan and shape into a loaf about 5 inches wide.
  • Bake for about 1 hour and 15 minutes.
  • While meatloaf is baking, combine ketchup, brown sugar and 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce in a small saucepan.
  • Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Pour or spoon over the meatloaf (after the 1 hour, 15 minute baking time). Bake for about 15 more minutes, until temperature reaches 160 degrees in the center of the meatloaf.
  • Let meatloaf rest 5-10 minutes in baking pan, then remove to a serving platter.
  • The drippings from the pan are obscene over mashed potatoes.
  • I've made this with all the beef/pork combo, all beef and even buffalo and beef combined. It's always outrageous (we think). Also,it is better with the beef broth, rather than the milk.
