Yes, it really is the best meatloaf you will ever have.
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
3 Medium Onions chopped
1 Tsp dried or fresh Tyme
2 Tsp Salt
1 Tsp Fresh Ground Pepper
3 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
1/3 Cup Canned Beef Stock or Broth
1 Tablespoon Tomato Paste
2 lbs Ground Beef 80/20%
½ Cup Bread Crumbs
2 Eggs, beaten
½ Cup Ketchup
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Heat olive oil in medium sauté pan. Add the onions, tyme, salt, and pepper and cook over med heat stirring occasionally, for 8-10 minutes until translucent, not brown. Take pan off heat, add Worcestershire sauce, beef stock, and tomato paste. Allow to slightly cool. IN a large bowl, combine beef, onion mixture, bread crumbs, and eggs and mix with your hands. Make sure not to over mix or mash. Shape mixture into a rectangle shape on a sheet pan covered with aluminum foil. Spread ketchup evenly on top. Bake for 1 – 1-1/4 hours until internal temp of 160 degrees. *Bake w/ a pan of hot water on the rack below the meatloaf for a more moist loaf and prevents cracking.
