Clever cooks are discovering that many
wonderful dishes can be made in the crock- pot, even gourmet dishes. If you try
and convert your favorite recipe, you may have to reduce the cooking liquid.
Slow cooking is essentially a process where the food is steamed.
Try and use the best quality ingredients that you can find for the best results.
Crock Pot Barbecue Meatloaf
2 - 2 1/2 lbs. ground beef
3/4 C. barbecue sauce
1 C. crushed soda crackers
2 t. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 C. diced onion
1/2 t. salt
1/4 C. water
2 t. prepared mustard
2 T. brown sugar
1 T. vinegar
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Form into a meatloaf shape that will fit
into your crockpot. Cut a strip of foil to go under the meatloaf in the
crockpot, leaving it long enough so that you can use it to lift the meatloaf out
when it is finished cooking.
After placing the meatloaf in crockpot, top the meatloaf with an additional 1/3
C. barbecue sauce. Cook for 8 - 10 hours on Low.
Serves 6 - 8.
