BBQ-STYLE MEAT LOAF
4 to 6 servings
In a medium bowl, combine the first 6 ingredients plus ½ cup tomato sauce, mixing well. Shape mixture into a loaf, about 9 x 5 x 3-inches; place meatloaf in an ungreased 9 x 5 x 3-inch loaf pan or in the center of a large sheet of heavy-duty aluminum foil (preferably double-thickness). (If using aluminum foil, bring foil up around sides of loaf, leaving top of meatloaf uncovered. Bake, uncovered, in a preheated moderate oven (350 degrees F.) for 15 minutes.
In a medium heavy saucepan, combine the remaining tomato sauce and remaining ingredients, blending well. Bring to a boil over moderate heat; reduce heat slightly and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 12 to 15 minutes.
Pour off any liquid that has collected in loaf pan or foil. Evenly pour hot barbecue sauce over meatloaf. Continue baking meatloaf, uncovered, for 45 minutes. Allow meatloaf to stand several minutes before slicing. To serve, cut meatloaf into slices. Arrange two meatloaf slices on each dinner plate; top each serving with a spoonful of sauce and garnish as desired. May pass any remaining sauce in a sauceboat.
