This is a very good recipe. Similar to "Sweet-and-Sour Meat Loaf" also found on this site that is made in the microwave. I made them both. For this one, I tried it once as is - and then made some changes to make it just right for me (using some things from the other recipe). I upped it to 2 pounds of ground beef, added 4 tbsp. ketchup, 2 tbsp. yellow mustard and 2 tbsp. onion soup mix to the mixture. I increased the minced onion to 2 tbsp. and left the tomato sauce out of the mixture altogether. I increased the cooking time to 1 hour for a crustier loaf around the edges. For the sauce, I used the whole 15 oz. can of tomato sauce, 4 tbsp. cider vinegar, 4 tbsp. brown sugar and 1/2 cup white sugar. I left the mustard out of the sauce. I drizzled just enough over the loaf to glaze and returned to the oven for an additional 15 minutes. Then, we had plenty of sauce to use as a "gravy" for our mashed potatoes (which was out of this world) and more for the meat if desired. This is a sweet and tangy recipe for sure - so you really have to have a taste for it. This recipe provided a great base for me to get to what I was after. Thanks so much!
