Ingredients

Meatloaf:

1 tablespoon unsalted butter, for greasing

2 pounds lean ground chuck

1/2 cup dry breadcrumbs

1/2 cup tomato sauce

1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt

Freshly cracked black pepper

1 egg

1 yellow onion, coarsely grated

1 russet potato, grated

Awesome Sauce:

1/2 cup tomato sauce

2 tablespoons prepared mustard

2 tablespoons dark brown sugar

2 tablespoons plain white vinegar

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Grease the bottom of an 8- by 12-inch baking pan with the butter.
  2. For the meatloaf: Mix together the chuck, breadcrumbs, tomato sauce, sea salt, some pepper, egg, onions and potatoes in a large bowl. Form the beef mixture into a bread-like loaf and place in the center of the baking pan. 
  3. For the awesome sauce: Whisk together the tomato sauce, mustard, sugar and vinegar in a medium bowl. 
  4. Bake the meatloaf until browned, 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and pour two-thirds of the sauce on top. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees F. Bake for another 1 hour 15 minutes, basting the loaf with the remaining sauce every 10 minutes. Once the meatloaf is cooked, remove it from the pan, slice it up, and serve.
