Crock-Pot Manly Meatloaf (via CrockPotLadies.com) - This recipe is my go to "man pleasing" meatloaf recipe that my husband wanted. He wanted big slices of meatloaf with plenty leftover after feeding our large family for leftovers. Get out your big crock-pot for this amazing recipe!

Crock-Pot Manly Meatloaf

This recipe is not for the faint of heart. My husband said he wanted meatloaf for dinner.

A “manly meatloaf” with enough for leftover meatloaf sandwiches for the next day.

Well we are a large family, so a regular meatloaf normally just feeds us for dinner and that’s it.

Not this recipe though…this one has plenty for dinner and leftovers. Get out your big crock-pot (6 quart or larger) for this one because it has 5 pounds of ground beef in it.

 

To create this recipe I took my grandmother’s meatloaf and my husband’s grandmother’s meatloaf recipes and sort of combined them. How can you go wrong with meatloaf recipes from your grandma?

And let me just tell you, this stuff is good too! The meatloaf comes out moist and tender (because it is is cooking away all day in a moist environment in the slow cooker) and full of flavor. There is onion, garlic, special seasonings and spices and then…this glorious meatloaf is glazed with a delicious sweet and tangy brown sugar/ketchup glaze that is perfect.

Quick note about the Liquid Smoke in this recipe
Several readers have commented about the liquid smoke listed as an ingredient in this recipe. What it is and where they can find it. Liquid smoke is found in most US grocery stores in the spice aisle. It is a liquid flavoring that adds a bit of smokiness flavor to your recipes. Totally optional if you cannot find it but our family likes the flavor it adds. A little goes a long way though.

Of course you can cut theĀ recipeĀ in half if you want to. But if you have a crew to feed or want left overs for sandwiches or just to put the extra in the freezer for another meal (or two) give this recipe a try and let me know what you think!

We have now made this recipe several times over, and let me tell you this is it folks…the best meatloaf I have ever had.

Get out the big crock-pot for this recipe! I used a 7 quart crock-pot myself. I like to do a glaze on top of my meatloaf….to make just combine 1/2 cup ketchup and 1/4 cup brown sugar and spread over the meatloaf before cooking.
