This was the meatloaf I grew up with (my mom's). My husband told me he did not like meatloaf.....but he loves mom's. Hope you and your family love it too. ****I have finely chopped mushrooms and added them to the meat mixture..... My sister has topped the meatloaf with bar-b q sauce.
In a large bowl, with your clean hands, mix together well the hamburger meat, seasoned meat tenderizer and 2 eggs.
In a medium bowl drain the liquid from the stewed tomatoes and reserve for later use.
Then mix the stewed tomatoes into the meat mixture.
With hands shape meat mixture into a loaf. Transfer to well greased loaf pan.
Mix tomatoe sauce with the liquid from stewed tomatoes and pour 1/4 th to 1/2 over meatloaf. Cover with foil or lid ( if pan has one) and Bake at 350 degees for 1 hour. Remove foil or lid and let brown 15 - 20 min.
Take remaining sauce and heat in small pan and drizzle over meatloaf slices.
