Recipe #82: Really GOOD Meatloaf

Oh man.  Anybody who might think that meatloaf needs to have ketchup or barbecue sauce piled on it in order for it to be edible hasn't tried this!  Super moist, great flavor, and my stomach hurts because I just had to have more of it!  This is from another new cookbook from my sister:

Sandra Lee Semi-Homemade Cooking 3


2 tablespoons butter
2 ribs celery, finely chopped
1 cup frozen or fresh chopped onion
1 tablespoon minced garlic (I used more, of course)
2 teaspoons Montreal steak seasoning
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
2/3 cup cocktail sauce
1 1/4 pounds lean ground beef
1 pound ground pork
1 cup Italian bread crumbs
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 teaspoons yellow mustard
1/4 cup light brown sugar


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  In a medium skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat.  Saute celery until soft, about 5 minutes.  Add onion and garlic and cook for 2 minutes.  Stir in steak seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, and 1/3 cup cocktail sauce.  Heat through and remove from heat.

In a large bowl, mix together ground beef, ground pork, eggs, breadcrumbs, and sauteed vegetables.  Form into a loaf and fit into a large loaf pan.  Bake in preheated oven 45 minutes.

In a small bowl, combine remaining cocktail sauce, mustard, and brown sugar.  Remove meatloaf from oven and carefully drain off fat.  Cover with sauce mixture and bake for another 10 to 15 minutes.  Let rest 10 minutes before serving.
