Barbecue Style Meat Loaf

Barbecue Style Meatloaf
From The Prairie Table Cookbook

Hands-on time: 5 minutes
Baking time: 1 hour or so

Serves 4

1 ½ lb/ 680g grass fed ground beef (it really is much leaner and very tasty)
1 onion finely chopped
1 ½ tsp salt
1 cup fresh bread crumbs (I used Panko)
1 beaten egg
¼ tsp pepper
1 cup Marinara sauce (the recipe called for “1 can tomato sauce”, but didn’t say what size)
3 tbsp vinegar (I used red wine vinegar)
2 tbsp mustard (I used a honey Dijon)
½ cup water
3 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F/170°C.

2. Combine all the meatloaf ingredients and form a loaf. Place it in a loaf pan (or shallow baking dish).

3. Combine the sauce ingredients in a separate bowl and pour over the meatloaf. Bake for 1 hour or until a meat thermometer registers 170°F/77°C.

4. Baste with a little more sauce once or twice during the baking and serve as a “ketchup”.

Great with Roasted Root Vegetables with Maple Balsamic Dressing.
