Janette's Story

I don't make your traditional dry, flavorless meatloaf, blah. I like food with wonderful aroma and delicious melt in your mouth flavor. My whole family loves this recipe. I usually make homemade mashed potatoes, a creamy mac and cheese, and garlic green beans to go with it, oh and some dinner rolls. Enjoy!!!


3 lb
ground beef
1 pkg
townhouse crackers crushed
1/2 c
teriyaki sauce
2 Tbsp
mustard, spicy brown
3/4 Tbsp
seasonal salt (i use mccormicks due to it is not completely salt)
onion, chopped
1 c
1/2 c
worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 Tbsp
garlic powder
1 1/4 tsp
ground black pepper
1/4 c
brown sugar, lightly packed
2 c
1 Tbsp
mustard, spicy brown
1/4 c
worcestershire sauce
2 Tbsp
teriyaki sauce

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 300 degree's.
Use non-stick cooking spray and coat a deep dish baking pan.
Mix all meatloaf ingredients thoroughly by hand (make sure hands are clean, or you can wear gloves if you had prefer to). If it is too dry or too stiff add a little more ketchup, teriyaki, spicy brown mustard, and Worcestershire. (I usually just add a little at a time so as to not over do it).
Place meatloaf in baking pan, I usually shape it to form something similuar to a football but not completely, and about 2-3 inches thick throughout, place in preheated oven and let cook about 1 1/2 hours, checking it periodically in between due to some ovens tend to cook faster or slower than others.
While meatloaf is cooking you can mix up and set aside the homemade barbeque sauce for it.
Combine all sauce ingredients, whisking well to help break up the brown sugar. Taste test the sauce, if it taste to sugary, add more ketchup and the other ingredients until it is perfect for your taste. Set aside till meatloaf is almost done.
Also get ready any side dishes you plan to have with it. Early prep of some items makes it easier to get it all done at the same time.
About 1/2 hour before meatloaf is done, remove from the oven and drain off any grease or fat that has cooked out of the meat, spread the barbeque sauce across the top of the meatloaf. Place back in the oven for the remaining 30 minutes.
Prepare the sides that you like to have or use the ones I described. Hope you and your family enjoy it.

    Janette, I tried your meat loaf last night. I have a large family to cook for on Sunday. I had 5 1/2 pounds of lean ground beef. I doubled the recipe, and you may not believe it, but it was wipe out. It was really amazing. Thank you so much for sharing the recipe.

    Wow! Thank you very much for sharing. I am glad your family loved it. My family usually will beat down the front door and run each other over to get to the table when I make it, so I understand completely. Hope you have many more days of Happy Cooking!
