Sweet and Sour Meatloaf

31 Mar

This recipe is from my cousin, Christy. It has made meatloaf lovers out of many folks who didn’t think they could like meatloaf. I didn’t originally consider it a. “Skinny” recipe, but if i make it into a long, thinner loaf, it easily makes 10 slices of very nutritionally reasonable meatloaf.

– 2 lbs 92% lean beef
– 25 saltine crackers, crushed
– 2 eggs
– salt and pepper to taste
– 1 (15 oz) can tomato sauce, divided
– 3 tbsp mustard
– 1/2 cup sugar
– 1/2 cup ketchup
– 1/3 cup water
– 3 tbsp vinegar

1. Mix beef, crackers, eggs, salt, pepper, and half of tomato sauce thoroughly.

2. Form beef mixture into a long, narrow loaf stretching the length of a 9×13 pan.

3. In a small saucepan, mix remaining sauce with mustard, sugar, ketchup, water, and vinegar. Cook on low until sauce begins to thicken.

4. Pour a little over half of sauce over loaf. Reserve remaining sauce in pan.

5. Cover loaf with foil and bake at 350 for 1 hour and 15-30 min or until center is done. Scoop sauce from sides, and pour back over top of loaf about every 20 min.

6. Just before serving, cook reserved sauce down until thickened. Serve over slices of meatloaf.
