Slow Cooker Meatloaf

Cooking time:6 hours

Yield: 4 to 6 servings

Ingredients

For the Meatloaf:

  • 1/4 cup of water
  • 2 pounds of lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup of minced onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup of minced green bell pepper
  • 1 sleeve of saltine crackers, crushed fine
  • 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon of Cajun seasoning (like Slap Ya Mama), or to taste, optional
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup milk, only if needed
  • 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce, optional
  • 1/2 tablespoon of Kitchen Bouquet, optional

For the Glaze:

  • 1/2 cup of ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon Creole mustard
  • 2 tablespoons of light brown sugar

Directions :

Place the 1/4 cup of water in the bottom of a 6 quart slow cooker. Add the ground beef to a large bowl and top with the minced vegetables, crushed saltines, seasonings and egg. Gently mix, adding milk only as needed to moisten. Form into a loaf and place into slow cooker.

Combine the Worcestershire and Kitchen Bouquet if using and brush over the top of the meatloaf. Cover and cook on low 5 to 6 hours, or until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F in several places. Combine the glaze ingredients until well mixed; spread across the top of the meatloaf the last 15 minutes of cooking time. Use a wide spatula to carefully transfer meatloaf to a platter. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
