Boston Market Meatloaf

  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons kraft barbecue sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 1/2 lbs lean ground sirloin
  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 dash garlic powder

How to Make It

  • 1 Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • 2 Combine the tomato sauce, barbecue sauce and sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat.
  • 3 Heat the mixture until it begins to bubble, stirring often, and then remove it from the heat.
  • 4 In a large bowl, add all but 2 tablespoons of the tomato sauce to the meat.
  • 5 Use a large wooden spoon or your hands to work the sauce into the meat until it is very well combined.
  • 6 Combine the remaining ingredients with the ground sirloin-- flour, salt, onion powder and ground pepper.
  • 7 Use the wooden spoon or your hands to work the spices and flour into the meat.
  • 8 Load the meat into a loaf pan (preferably a meatloaf pan with two sections which allows the fat to drain, but if you don't have one of those a regular loaf pan will work).
  • 9 Wrap foil over the pan and place it into the oven for 30 minutes.
  • 10 After 30 minutes, take the meatloaf from the oven, remove the foil and, if you aren't using a meatloaf pan, drain the fat.
  • 11 Using a knife, slice the meatloaf all the way through into 8 slices while it is still in the pan.
  • 12 This will help to cook the center of the meatloaf.
  • 13 Pour the remaining 2 tablespoons of sauce over the top of the meatloaf, in a stream down the center.
  • 14 Don't spread the sauce.
  • 15 Place the meatloaf back into the oven, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes or until it is done.
  • 16 Remove and allow it to cool for a few minutes before serving.
