Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons ketchup, divided
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 12 saltines, crushed
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 pounds lean ground beef (90% lean)

Directions

Cut three 20-in. x 3-in. strips of heavy-duty foil; crisscross so they resemble spokes of a wheel. Place strips on the bottom and up the sides of a 3-qt. slow cooker. Coat strips with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, combine 2 tablespoons ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, saltines, onion, garlic, paprika, salt, pepper and cayenne. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well.
Shape into a round loaf. Place in the center of the strips. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours or until no pink remains and a thermometer reads 160°.
Using foil strips as handles, remove the meat loaf to a platter.
Spread remaining ketchup over top. Yield: 8 servings.
