Yes, meatloaf can make a healthy, delicious dinner, as long as you stick to lean ground chuck! “This sweet and tangy meatloaf recipe is hearty enough to feed the whole family and so tasty that there won’t be any leftovers this time round,” Nadia G says.
2 lb. lean ground chuck
1 yellow onion, coarsely grated
1 russet potato, finely grated
1 c. Hunt’s tomato sauce
1/2 c. dry breadcrumbs
1 1/2 tsp. sea salt
Freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
1 tbsp. unsalted butter
2 tbsp. prepared mustard
2 tbsp. dark brown sugar
2 tbsp. plain white vinegar
1 c. water
For the meatloaf:
In a large bowl, combine the ground chuck, egg, onion, potato, 1/2 c. Hunt’s tomato sauce, breadcrumbs, sea salt, and freshly cracked pepper. Grease the baking pan with the butter. Form the beef mixture into a bread-like loaf and place in the center of the pan.
For the awesomesauce:
In a medium-sized bowl, combine 1/2 c. Hunt’s tomato sauce, mustard, brown sugar, vinegar, and water. Whisk and set aside. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake the meatloaf for 15 minutes, until browned. Once it is browned, remove it from the oven, and pour 2/3 c. sauce over the meatloaf. Bake for another 1 1/4 hours, basting the loaf with the remaining sauce every 10 minutes. Once the meatloaf is cooked, remove it from the pan, slice it up, and serve.
Makes 6 servings.
