14Pour over meatloaf
15Cook on High for 5 hours 30 minutes
16Nice cold in sandwiches too
19No Tea Towel Needed
20Vinegar: White or Malt - I have used both and its still great
21Sugar: White or Brown - I have used both and its still great
22Tomato Sauce - is what we in NZ call it - in some countries this is Ketchup - this is not Passata or a pasta sauce - its the stuff you dip your chips (french fries) into
23Yes there is coffee in it, its only 1 teaspoon and you cant taste it as coffee - its just gives flavour to the sauce
24Its Meatloaf - you can try different minces, some people do without the sausage meat - it should all still work fine, this is just the recipe I was given.

I have a 7L slow cooker. Will it still work if I shape the meatloaf to have it sit in the middle of the slow cooker or will it fall apart?
Sauce was very wet. I think the water is a wrong measure. Floating

Very nice. Kids loved it. It’s close to my oven recipe but so easy just having it cook away. Definitely cook again 😊

I don’t see why not 🙂 Bearing it mind it may be slightly oilier 🙂
Can you use lamb mince instead of beef? I have heaps of marked down lamb mince in the freezer that I need to use up.

I have a big family and would like to double the sausage meat, would I double all other ingredients as well?

This is the same as my family used to have. I was abit unsure how it would go in the slow cooker but thought well it’s pretty much cooking the same way really and gave it ago. And it was delish 👌so much easier doing it in the slow cooker. Only thinki did different was added 1 1/2 tablespoon of lemon juice to the sauce and i didnt have curry so skipped that
My daughters favourite word tonight more 😂
This is the same recipe my mum used to make and its the best! I was searching for a good meat loaf that was like that one for the slow cooker and i found it. Thank you i am going to be cooking this tonight 😊😊

Oh my, this recipe is 100% massive hit with myself and my partner who is picky and said it’s the best his ever had. I love meatloaf and this one has topped them all. It came out mouth watering, it never came out dry at all. And the sauce was magnificent. I’ll be definitely making this again 100%.

Yes you can
If your cooker bowl is ceramic I just sit the tin in a shallow water bath of 2cm or so
I also use silicone loaf tins too
February 11, 2018
Can you use a metal loaf tin in the slow cooker..
November 23, 2017

I like to use my silicone loaf tins in my slow cooker

Absolutely love this meatloaf recipe! Actually it was my first attempt at making any type of meatloaf ever and it was a total success 🙂 It is so easy and delicious and the whole family loved it and simply served with mashed potatoes and the amazing gravy (it is sensational). I think the only problem I had with this meatloaf was convincing everyone not to go back for seconds and thirds so there was some leftover for sandwiches the next day , which are also amazing with a little leftover gravy on them. Will be a regular go to meal in this house because of the fact that the entire family really enjoy it and it is so easy to prepare.

It was first time doing a meatloaf in sc and the first after the last one failed miserably years ago. All I can say is yummy. Will definitely become a family staple. Left the onion out but used onion salt instead. Even toddler cleaned his plate

First ever Meatloaf I’ve made & was delighted. Hubby is a huge Meatloaf fan so the pressure was on & I think I nailed it! It’s now on our regular meals list.
Really easy & very tasty & tender. Definitely a winner!

Loved this meatloaf recipe. The only thing I changed was that I cooked it in a conventional oven for about an hour as my son is unable to eat slow cooker meals for a little while following a bone marrow transplant.
