Meatloaf as a kid growing up was in my house alot. For reasons, I guess you could get more for your money. You could take 2 lbs. of ground beef and feed the whole family. Course we never complained it was always great. My Grandmother grew up on a farm. So she really knew how to make a meal with just about nothing, but we always eat good. Heck we didn't even know that we was kinda poor. Lol
An ancient Roman cookbook featured a budding meatloaf combination, as did 17th-century French cooking and the culinary works of the 18th century Pennsylvanian Dutch. But the Industrial Revolution was key to meatloaf's longstanding place in our cuisine, along with the invention of the mechanical meat grinder.
2lb. lean ground beef
2 eggs (slighty beaten)
1 cup Chez-it crackers, crushed
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup milk
1/2 cup Heinz 57 sauce (plus a little more for top)
3/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
In large bowl combine all ingredients and mix thouroughly. Place in IP safe dish and add 1 cup of water to the pot. Manual for 25 minutes and 10 minutes NPR. Add a little Heinz 57 to top. Cool meatloaf for 10 minutes and slice.
