Ingredients
  • 2 cups ketchup
  • 1 cup plain dry breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef (80/20)
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground pork
  • 1 medium onion, grated and lightly squeezed of excess liquid
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 3/4 teaspoon chipotle chile powder
Directions
  • Position a rack in the upper third of the oven and preheat to 375 degrees F. Mix 1/2 cup of the ketchup, the breadcrumbs, milk, eggs, parsley, and 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce together in a large bowl and set aside until the breadcrumbs have absorbed the liquid, about 3 minutes.

  • Add the ground beef and pork, onion, garlic, 1 tablespoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper to the bowl and mix until well combined (do not overmix).

  • Transfer the meat mixture to an 18-by-13-inch sheet pan and press it into an even layer covering the entire surface. Whisk the remaining 1 1/2 cups ketchup, 1 tablespoon Worcestershire, brown sugar, cider vinegar, and chipotle powder in a small bowl. Brush the meatloaf with the sauce.

  • Bake until the meat is cooked through, about 20 minutes, then turn on the broiler setting and broil until the top becomes caramelized and dark in spots, 3 to 4 minutes more, turning the pan periodically for even broiling. Let rest 5 minutes before serving.

  • Special equipment: an 18-by-13-inch sheet pan
