1 lb. ground beef, round
1 lb. ground pork
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
½ cup finely chopped onion
½ cup finely chopped red pepper
½ cup finely chopped bell pepper
¼ cup finely chopped celery
¼ cup finely chopped carrots
2 tsp. chopped garlic
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce or A-1 steak sauce
½ cup evaporated milk (not sweeten)
½ cup ketchup
2 large eggs, beaten
1 cup dry breadcrumbs, Italian style

OPTIONAL: BBQ Topping: Mix ½ cup BBQ sauce with 1-2 tablespoons brown sugar. Spread on top of the uncooked meatloaf.

Melt butter in sauce pan over medium heat. Sauté all veggies, Worcestershire sauce and garlic for 5 mins. Mixture will look sticky, stir occasionally. Add milk and ketchup to the pan, cook for 2 mins. Mixture will look like orange goo…it’s suppose to look like this…don’t worry. Set aside this veggie mixture, cool to room temp.

Mix thoroughly the ground beef, ground pork, eggs, bread crumbs and the cooled veggie mush mixture. Form into a loaf that is 1 ½ inches high, 6 inches wide, and 10-12 inches long. Bake on a broiling pan where the grease can drain away from the meat.

Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 25 mins. then turn up the heat to 400 degrees for another 30 mins. Take out of oven, cover loosely with foil and let set for about 10 mins.
