Moist, juicy, delicious meatloaf with some surprising sauce ingredients that might just make you reconsider your opinion of meatloaf in general! Ingredients Glaze: • 1.5 cups apple cider vinegar • 1.5 cups light brown sugar • 1 TBSP yellow mustard • ¼ cup ketchup Meatloaf: • 1 small onion, finely diced • 2 whole large eggs • 1 egg yolk • ¼ cup milk • ½ cup ketchup • 2 TBSP A-1 steak sauce • ½ tsp salt • ¼ tsp ground black pepper • ½ tsp dry mustard • ½ tsp onion powder • ¼ tsp garlic powder • 1 tsp dried parsley • 1 TBSP minced garlic • ¼ cup panko bread crumbs • 1 sleeve crushed saltine crackers • 2.5 lbs 80/20 ground beef
Place glaze ingredients in a saucepan and mix well. Heat to simmering, and stir frequently while you mix up the loaf ingredients.
Finely chop the onion and mix in all of the other loaf ingredients except the ground beef. Stir until well combined, and then add ground beef and mix until fully incorporated.
Press down into large oven-safe pan, and make space between the edge of the loaf and the pan.
Pour glaze over the loaf, leaving room for the glaze to mix with the fat and juices from the beef. Keep the remaining glaze warm on the stove until the loaf is done cooking.
Bake the meatloaf at 375 for approximately 1 hour, or until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees. Remove from oven, and carefully pour the glaze/sauce mixture from the baking dish into the saucepan. Whisk together well.
Slice the loaf and serve with mashed potatoes and a vegetable, spooning some of the sauce/glaze mixture over the individual slices of meatloaf and on the potatoes as well.
