Better and Cheaper Than Steak: The 6 Best Meatloaf Recipes on the Web
Posted Date: 2013-10-11

When it comes to comfort food, nothing beats a hearty meatloaf. Meatloaf is an American classic that remains a dinner-table favorite today. Packed with bold flavors and loaded with ground meat, it's a satisfying and easy weeknight meal that the whole family will enjoy.

A traditional meatloaf is made of ground beef bound together with breadcrumbs and often an egg and then mixed with spices and herbs. Ground beef is significantly less expensive than steak and other cuts of beef, making meatloaf a bargain meat dish. Some might even prefer the taste to steak because of the added spices and herbs.

Check out some of these easy meatloaf recipes and make sure to put one (or two) into your weekly menu. To save extra time, try preparing the meatloaf in the morning, store it in the refrigerator during the day, and then when you get home, all you have to do is throw it in the oven.

Easy Meatloaf Recipe

Serve with those crisp-roasted potatoes and some roasted broccoli. Comfort food at its finest!


1 pound ground beef
1/3 cup breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large yellow onion, chopped fine
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup Italian parsley, finely chopped
One 8-ounce can pureed tomatoes
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
3 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon brown sugar


Combine the ground beef and breadcrumbs in a medium bowl. Set aside. In a large sauté pan, heat the olive oil and add the onions. Sauté until translucent over high heat, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and add to beef. Season with salt and parsley. Mix well.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In the same sauté pan, combine the tomatoes, vinegar, mustard, and sugar. Bring to a boil and cook until thickened, about 10 minutes.

Press meat mixture into a loaf pan. Top with cup sauce. Place in oven and bake 10 minutes.

After 10 minutes, baste with the juices and add cup more sauce. Continue cooking for another 10 minutes and baste again. Cook for about 10 minutes longer. Remove from the oven and let cool 10 minutes. Cut into slices and serve with an additional spoonful of sauce.
