Reviews for Pot Roast Meat Loaf
"This was good, but I had to revise the recipe somewhat. I thought it strange that there was no liquid for the vegetables and even with covering it tightly before baking, when I checked it about halfway through, the vegetables were very dry. So, I whipped up a meatloaf topping of ketchup, brown sugar, worchestershire sauce and yellow mustard and generously topped the meatloaf with it and drizzled some over the vegetables. I recovered the whole pan tightly and baked it for another 45 minutes and then uncovered it, stirred the veggies around and baked for another 15 minutes. The vegetables definitely needed the moisture from the topping and while we enjoyed the dish, I'll probably stick to my favorite meatloaf recipe rather than use this one again."
"This was so easy and delicious. I tossed the vegetables with a tiny bit of olive oil before baking. My husband kept saying how delicious dinner was!"
"Made this for dinner tonight and family raved about it! I made 1-1/2 times the recipe, added an egg, a Tbs of garlic powder & used bread crumbs instead of crackers. I also added 1/2 cup of minced red & green peppers with purple onion to the meat mixture. I added extra carrots & thinly sliced potatoes around the meatloaf, but no green pepper. It was fantastic. Thank you, Magdalene, for sharing your recipe!"
"Oh, this sounds so good! Can't wait to make it for my family. Does it really require that much Worcestershire sauce? Sounds like a lot, but may be necessary for taste. Please advise."
"Liked the idea, however, veggies were not done! I even gave them extra time, meatloaf was very good. If I do it again, I would partially cook the veggies first, or when finished baking, remove from pan and microwave them to finish them off."
