2  1/2 lbs ground beef~ 80 or 85 % lean

2 TBS olive oil

2 onions, finely chopped

2 garlic clove, pressed

1 red bell pepper, finely chopped

1/4 cup beef stock

3 TBS Worcestershire sauce

1 TBS tomato paste

2/3 fresh bread crumbs

1 -2 eggs

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup catsup
2 TBS fresh parsley

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and pepper and sautee for 6-8 minutes, until onions are translucent but not browned. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute.  Remove from heat.  Add beef stock, tomato paste and Worcestershire sauce and mix. Let cool for 15 minutes.

Put all ingredients in a large bowl and gently mix. Do not smoosh it all together because it will cause your meatloaf to be tough. Gently mix together. Form into 6 individual meatloaves or make 2 larger loaf. Cover with extra catsup and if desired bacon strips.


Bake for 40-45  minutes for individual meatloaves or 1~ 1 hour 10 minutes for large loaf, until done through
