Boston Market Meatloaf

This is especially yummy. Next time I make it I might try it in the crockpot. I was told you just have to cook on low 6-8 hours. I served it with garlicky-cheesey mashed potatoes and french style green beans.

Boston Market Meatloaf

1 cup tomato sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons Kraft original barbecue sauce
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 1/2 pounds ground sirloin, 10% fat
6 tablespoons all purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
dash garlic powder

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine the tomato sauce, barbecue sauce and sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Heat the mixture until it begins to bubble, stirring often, then remove it from the heat. In a large bowl, add all but 2 tablespoons of the tomato sauce to the meat.

Use a large wooden spoon or your hands to work the sauce into the meat until it is very well combined. Combine the remaining ingredients with the ground sirloin; flour, salt, onion powder and ground pepper. Use the wooden spoon or your hands to work the spices and flour into the meat.

Load the meat into a loaf pan. Wrap foil over the pan and place it into the oven for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, take the meatloaf from the oven, remove the foil and drain the fat.

Using a knife, slice the meatloaf all the way through into 8 slices while it is still in the pan. This will help to cook the center of the meatloaf. Pour the remaining 2 tablespoons of sauce over the top of the meatloaf, in a stream down the center. Don't spread the sauce. Place the meatloaf back into the oven, uncovered, for 25 to 30 minutes or until it is done. Remove and allow it to cool for a few minutes before serving.

Serves 4.

I'll let you know how the cake turned out - OMG. That was awesome! And you're right, some Breyer's vanilla ice cream on the side hit the spot! Rob did a great job - and thank you for the recipe.

hey what would be the crockpot directions---from the cooking impaired!

If you have a pan that would fit inside your crockpot, I might try that, or I would just shape it into a loaf and place it into the bottom and set it on high. (please note: I havent ever actually tried this)
