Sweet-and-Sour Meat Loaf
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 1 hour
This is the best meatloaf I have ever made!!! This is the best meatloaf I have ever made! I made it exactly as described, and it was so flavorful and moist! My husband was very hesitant to try this new recipe, but once he took his first bite, he was amazed! This is a keeper!!!
It was ok. I may make it again. I mixed the sauce and added half of it to the meatloaf instead of just the tomato sauce as others suggested. It was nice
This is one of the easiest meat loaf recipes. I've used it quite often and it is pretty good. The dried onions add flavor but not texture. If you are looking to step it up a notch, try Paula Deen's home style meatloaf with onions and celery and a topping made with tomato paste, brown sugar and lemon.
Really good meatloaf! I used panko crumbs and chopped fresh onion instead of dried, and used ketchup instead of tomato sauce. Since I used ketchup, I eliminated the 1/2 cup sugar and just used the brown sugar, along with the other ingredients. I just mixed the sauce ingredients together and poured it over the meatloaf. Baked the loaf on a roasting rack and it came out perfect. Served it with mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli. Will definitely make this again!
Good recipe. Nice that it did not require milk. I used another topping instead of the sauce recipe. This was a good meatloaf that stayed together well. I will make this again. Thanks for the recipe.
Though I use a slightly different meatloaf mixture, I make the sauce (using regular white vinegar), pour just enough to cover the top of the meatloaf the last 5 minutes of baking, and pass the rest to serve. My husband was initially hesitant to try it, but, since finding this recipe some years ago, he won't eat meatloaf any other way and I never make "plain" meatloaf anymore! We especially like it with garlic smashed potatoes, buttered green beans, and homemade biscuits. Comfort food at its best!
We enjoyed this twist on the classic meatloaf. Especially liked the sweet and sour sauce!
My family likes this recipe. You can make the sauce more sweet and sour if that is the taste your family prefers. I found the recipe to be good just the way it is for my families taste.
Great Recipe. I made as written and it was delicious but I prefer using crackers instead of bread crumbs in my meat loaf (guess it's what you get used to), so the next time I doubled the recipe and made it with a sleeve and a half saltine crackers and added a packet of onion soup mix for more robust flavor. It was absolutely delicious. I froze one of the loafs uncooked along with a baggie of the prepared sauce for an easy fix meal later. Next time I might also try making all the tomato sauce into the topping sauce and adding half to the mixture instead of straight tomato sauce. I am also going to use this sauce for my meatball appetizers in my slow cooker.
Great recipe. My only adjustment was to prepare the topping sauce and add that to the meat mixture rather than straight tomato sauce. Delicious. I definitely will make again.
