2/3 c oats or bread crumbs 1/3 cup catsup, plus 2 tbsp. set aside 1 package onion soup mix 1 large egg 1 tbsp worestershire sauce 1 tsp salt 1/4 tsp pepper 2 lbs lean ground beef(85%or better).
combine everything except beef, mix well. Add beef and mix. shape into loaf. Place on a rack, (so it doesn’t sit in fat as it cooks), and pat down alittle.
cover and cook on low for 6-7 hrs. After almost done, cover with 2 tbsp. of catsup.
Turn crockpot on high and cook for an additional 15 min. The catsup helps to keep it moist. A rack is a must, and it also helps to drain off any fat as it cooks, if using beef that is under 90%fat free.
