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.
