Crock pot sweet and spicy meatloaf (recipe).
This recipe is an adaptation of a recipe given to me by my sweet friend Amanda from back home (I miss you Amanda! Please come visit again soon ❤). Cooking the meatloaf in the crock pot means you can come home to a completely finished dish, and it keeps it moist (even if it cooks a little longer than it should...).
This makes a lot - about 8 servings, but I wanted to have enough to cover the entire bottom of the crock pot. Good thing it makes delicious leftovers. You can also make this in the oven; bake covered for one hour at 350 degrees F.
2 lb lean ground beef
1 yellow onion, finely chopped
1 tbs (3 cubes) beef bouillon
1 cup bread crumbs
salt & pepper
1 cup ketchup
2 tbs brown sugar
2 tbs sweet chili sauce (Mae Ploy)
1 tsp mustard powder
1 tsp cayenne powder
1) Mix together beef, onion, eggs, bouillon, & bread crumbs. Add salt & pepper to taste.
2) Make glaze by mixing together ketchup, sugar, chili sauce, mustard, & cayenne.
3) Gently press meat mixture into an even layer in the bottom of the crock pot (don't press down too hard - it will make the meat loaf dense). Spoon the glaze over the top.
4) Cook on low for 5 hours. Remove from pot, slice, & serve.
