Easy Weeknight Meatloaf


Servings: Serves about four (can easily be doubled as well).

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour


The Loaf

  • 3 oz instant stuffing mix (That's 1 1/4 cup, or half a box.)
  • 1 egg
  • 4 fluid oz buttermilk (That's a half cup.)
  • 1 lb ground beef (85% lean is best.)
  • The Sauce

  • 4 fluid oz tomato sauce
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper ground
  • 1/4 tsp thyme ground
  • 1/4 tsp coriander ground
  • 1/8 tsp liquid smoke Pick your fav.

  • Instructions: Preheat an oven to 325F (or, set up a grill for indirect heat at the same temperature). Lightly oil a 10 inch cast iron skillet.
    For the loaf, pulverize the instant stuffing in a blender or food processor until you've got breadcrumbs. Whisk the egg with the buttermilk and stir in what was once stuffing. Let the mix stand for about 10 minutes to let it all hydrate. In the meantime, whisk together all the sauce ingredients in a separate bowl until integrated.

    Back to the loaf - Gently work the beef into the binder with your hands (mix it together, but don't be squeezing your beef any more than you have to). Shape into a loaf in the skillet while leaving a well in the middle to hold the majority of the sauce. Pour the sauce over the loaf, baste any bare spot swith sauce, and cook for 1 hour or until the internal temperature is at least 160F. Let rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
