This was tasty, but sort of a pain. It took an hour an a half to cook, and even then it was still kind of a mushy mess. It was also pretty greasy. Not really sure what I did wrong. Maybe it's because I used a "meatloaf mix" of ground meat? I also didn't feel like it tasted like "sweet n' sour", but it was still tasty. I'm not sure I'd try it again though, there are other meat loaf recipes I prefer over this one.

This is a quick and easy recipe. My husband doesn't like meatloaf with "sweet" tops. He said this was really good. It is a keeper and I will definitely make this again.
