What You'll Need

  • 2 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 onion  (finely chopped)
  • 1 rib celery (finely chopped)
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1/2 cup scallions (green onions, finely chopped)
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 1/2 pounds of ground chuck
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 2 eggs (beaten)
  • 1 cup plain bread crumbs
  • For the Glaze:
  • 1 tablespoon dark molasses
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoon ketchup

How to Make It

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  1. In a large pan cook the onions, garlic, celery, and scallions in the butter, over medium heat, for about 5 minutes, until the onions soften. Remove from heat, mix in the salt, pepper, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, and milk, and let cool to room temperature.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the meat, vegetable mixture, eggs, and breadcrumbs. Form into a loaf shape, about 4-inches high, and put into a baking pan. Mix the molasses, brown sugar, ketchup in a small bowl and spread evenly over the meatloaf. Bake the meatloaf in the oven for 1 hour, or until the internal temperature reaches 170 degrees F.

    Let rest for 15 minutes before serving.​
