Redneck Meatloaf

READY IN: 1hr 15mins


  • 1
    (8 ounce) can tomato sauce (I usually use home-canned)
  • 2
    lbs ground beef (the best quality on sale is what I use!)
  • 12 - 34
    cup onion (if you like it, use more)
  • 14 - 12
    cup green pepper, chopped VERY FINE
  • 1
    cup saltine crumbs
  • 13
    cup A.1. Original Sauce, plus
  • 3
    tablespoons A.1. Original Sauce (I use the Walmart knock-off, for the sauce, but I never measure, just glug it in)
  • 2
    eggs, beaten
  • 12
    teaspoon ground black peppercorns
  • 1
    dash salt, if desired


  • Slip your hands into plastic sandwich bags. This will make clean-up sooo much easier!
  • In a large bowl, combine the meat, crumbled and mushed up well, the chopped onion, green pepper, saltine crumbs, 1/3 cup steak sauce, eggs, pepper, salt, and half the can of tomato sauce.
  • Mush this all together (this is where I take out my aggressions). Place in a loaf pan lined with the new release foil. This stuff will save you more time on clean-up. While meatloaf bakes, stir together remaining tomato sauce and steak sauce.
  • Another tip: If you would rather, pat these out into mini-loaves. If you use a 9x13 pan, you could probably get 4-5 loaves, depending on how big you make them. Kids love their own meatloaf on their plate.
  • Bake in a 350 degree oven for 45-50 minutes (if making one loaf, less is mini-loaves). Pour off the grease. Coat top with sauce. Bake 10 more minutes.
  • Let stand a few minutes to cool down.
