This ain't your Mamma's Meatloaf! :) If you're one of those people who despises meatloaf, please try this recipe....I think you'll change your mind :)

Wonderful Meatloaf
2 pounds ground sirloin (it’s important to use sirloin because it’s lean)
1 small onion, chopped
½ green bell pepper, chopped
½ cup brown sugar
1 sleeve saltine crackers, crushed
1 egg
¼ cup A-1 Steak sauce
1 T. Ketchup
1 t. each of garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper
Topping for meatloaf: 
Mustard, brown sugar, tomato sauce and garlic powder:  This is what makes this recipe so awesome!
Combine ground sirloin and next 8 ingredients in a large bowl, mixing well.  It’s best if you take all your rings off and mix it well with your hands.  Turn meat mixture out onto a jellyroll pan lined with foil or parchment paper and spray with Pam.  Shape it into a long loaf.  It will be wide and long.
Yellow mustard
½ cup firmly packed brown sugar
16-ounce can tomato sauce
Garlic salt or powder
Squirt mustard evenly over loaf in thin lines. Now spread brown sugar evenly over the mustard and press into the meat.  Pour the tomato sauce evenly over loaf making sure to cover all the meat well.  Sprinkle with garlic powder or garlic salt as well as salt and pepper.   Bake at 375 for 1 hour.  Let cool for 10 minutes before slicing.   Serves 10.  Delicious!

  1. Years ago, whenever we visited my Paternal *birthday twin* aunt in New Orleans, she always made meatloaf. I have wanted a meatloaf like hers ever since. I do remember she said her main ingredient for special flavor was A-1 Steak Sauce. So I will be trying this recipe. I have used A-1 in mine, but never got her whole recipe. Hope this brings back memories of "Tant Shug's Meatloaf" in the 60s.
