Melt-in-Your-Mouth Meat Loaf
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Cook: 5-1/4 hours + standing
This was the best meatloaf recipe I never made. I loved the topping , never used anything like it before. I used the 2 eggs, tomato sauce and Liption onion soup. Used loaf pan that drains fat. Glad I looked on your site for a recipe using vension.????????????
Can anyone tell me if this recipe was written for the old style crock pots (the round ones) that had lower temperatures, or for the newer, oblong crockpots that run at higher temps (and no one uses the high, because the temperature is TOO high!)? I have both, and it makes a difference how long you cook something using the low setting between the two styles of pots. I talked with Rivel, the maker of the old-style crock pots, and they admitted that they'd upped the temperature on the new pots.
Texture was good, but it lacked flavor. Only took 4 hours to reach over 160 degrees in crockpot. Will probably make in oven next time and add more spices.
I enjoyed the mild flavor and liked that I could make meatloaf in the summer without turning on the oven. I can't believe I didn't know meatloaf could be prepared this way.
This was the best meatloaf recipe I have ever done. Thank you! Hubby asked for seconds and ate the leftovers without even being prompted! #win-win #awesome
Very good. One thing, I noticed people complained the meatloaf set in grease too long. Here's my solution. I roll up some foil balls about an inch diameter. Place them under the foil sling and poke some holes in the foil. Works like a charm.
It's a keeper
My family loves meatloaf and I'm always looking for new recipe to try. This one is a winner. Since I was short on time, I baked it in the oven instead of using my slow cooker. The only change I made was to use fresh minced onion instead of dried, and since I used 2 lbs of ground beef, I did increase the glaze for the top. I'll definitely try this in my slow cooker next time. Delicious!
Delicious! I did make a few tweaks. I used 1 lb of a meatloaf mix, and 1/2 lb ground turkey (so it was a 4-meat meatloaf!). I used real onion instead of dry, and just eyeballed it (didn't measure). I doubled the sauce, then used 2 tbsp of it in the meat mixture. I put most of the sauce on top before cooking, which gave it a nice glaze. The last little bit of sauce we saved for leftovers (so they wouldn't get too dry in the microwave). I put aluminum foil over a rack inside a baking pan, poking holes in it to allow the grease to seep through. I cooked the meatloaf in the oven, 350deg for about 75 minutes or so (until the thermometer read just a bit over 160). Make sure to let your meatloaf sit so it doesn't fall apart too terribly when you cut into it. This was probably the best meatloaf I've ever made.
Everyone loved it! I used pounds of meat so I added a little more of spices. Also put the bbq sauce in with the meat. I also made it in the oven, 350 for about 1-1/2 hours. Added a little grated carrot for color. Can’t wait to make again!
