Ingredients

Meatloaf:

2 pounds 80/20 ground beef

1 pound pork sausage, meat removed from casings 

2 eggs 

1 cup panko breadcrumbs 

One 32-ounce can whole peeled tomatoes 

1/2 cup red wine vinegar 

1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce 

2 teaspoons dried oregano leaves 

2 teaspoons ground black pepper 

2 teaspoons dried thyme leaves 

1 teaspoon kosher salt 

1 teaspoon seasoning salt 

5 cloves garlic 

1 yellow onion 

1 Anaheim chile

1/2 red onion 

Tomato Gravy:

1/2 cup ketchup

1/2 cup tomato paste 

1/4 cup yellow mustard 

Kosher salt and ground black pepper

Directions

Special equipment:
a high-powered blender
  1. For the meatloaf: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place beef, sausage, eggs and panko in a large bowl. Set aside.
  2. Place tomatoes, vinegar, Worcestershire, oregano, pepper, thyme, kosher salt, seasoning salt, garlic, yellow onion, chile and red onion in a high-powered blender and puree. Reserve half of this mixture for the tomato gravy. Pour the remaining half into the mixing bowl with the meat. Mix the meat really well with your hands until the meatloaf mixture is all the same color.
  3. Pack the meatloaf mixture into a 6-by-11-inch pan (or something similar). Place pan on a baking sheet to catch any fat that spills out during cooking. Bake the meatloaf until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 155 degrees F, 1 hour 30 minutes. Let meatloaf rest for 10 minutes, then pour the fat out of the pan.
  4. For the tomato gravy: Meanwhile, whisk together ketchup, tomato paste, mustard and reserved vegetable mix in a saucepan. Place over medium heat and bring up to a simmer. Reduce heat to low, then simmer, stirring every couple of minutes, for 30 minutes. Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper. Serve the tomato gravy with your finished meatloaf! Most importantly, enjoy with friends and family!
