Best Ever Meatloaf with Brown Gravy Recipe
- 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
- 3/4 cup fresh bread crumbs
- 1/2 cup chili sauce
- 1 egg
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1 cup fresh sliced mushrooms
- 2 tablespoons minced onion
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 cup beef broth
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
step 2: In a large bowl, combine ground beef, bread crumbs, chili sauce, egg, salt, and freshly ground black pepper; mix well. Shape into an 8x4 inch loaf pan.
step 3: Place loaf pan on a rack in an oven-roasting pan. Bake for 1 hour, or until done. Cook until internal temperature measures 160 degrees F (70 degrees C); the meat should be well done, with no trace of pink. Remove from oven, and allow to rest for 10 minutes before serving.
step 4: While the meatloaf is resting, prepare the gravy. In a medium saucepan, melt butter or margarine over medium heat. Add mushrooms and onions; cook and stir until tender. Add beef broth; simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Combine water and cornstarch in a small cup; stir into broth. Cook and stir for 1 minute, or until thickened.
