Transcript:How to Make Classic Crock Pot Meatloaf

Hi. I'm Aubrey with About.com. Today I'm going to show you how to make a classic crock pot meatloaf using a recipe from southernfood.about.com

Classic Crock Pot Meatloaf Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 3 pounds extra-lean ground beef
  • 1 1/2 cups bread crumbs
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 additional tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon beef base (or 1 bouillon cube dissolved in hot water)
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried sage
  • 2 tablespoons instant minced onion
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 3/4 cup milk

Prepare the Crock Pot for Meatloaf

To make things easier for you, you can start my taking a 20" - 30" piece of foil and folding it to create "handles." You will use these handles later to remove the cooked meatloaf from the crock pot. Arrange the foil in the bottom of the pot with the two ends hanging out of the slow cooker.

If you like, you can also place a wadded piece of foil at the bottom of the slow cooker to raise the meatloaf above any drippings.

Mix Meat with Ingredients

Add the ground beef to a large mixing bowl. Add the bread crumbs. Pour in the 1/3 cup of ketchup. Pour in the Worcestershire sauce. Add the beef base. Sprinkle in the dried sage. Add the onion. Pour in the milk. Add the beaten eggs. Stir very well, until thoroughly combined.

Cook the Meatloaf on Low and Slow

Form the mixture into a loaf shape. Carefully place it in the slow cooker. Now add the remaining ketchup to a small mixing bowl. Pour in the corn syrup. Stir well. Pour this mixture over the meatloaf. Place the lid on the slow cooker. Turn to high, and cook for 1 hour.

Now turn the temperature to the low setting and cook for an additional for 5 to 6 hours. Allow the meatloaf to sit for 15 minutes before serving.
