Good Old Diner Meatloaf
Delicious comfort food, a taste from my childhood. I've used this recipe for years and my family loves it as much as I do. It's good enough for guests, too!
- Ready In:
- 1hr 10mins
- 1 1⁄2 lbs ground chuck
- 1⁄2 lb ground pork
- 3⁄4 cup beef broth (you can use milk)
- 1 cup yellow onion, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup breadcrumbs (I use seasoned)
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 -2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 egg, slightly beaten
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 cup ketchup
- 1 tablespoon firmly packed brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 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.
