Meatloaf with Sweet and Sour Sauce

1 ½ pounds ground beef chuck

1 cup soft bread crumbs

½ cup finely chopped red onion

¼ cup chopped parsley

¼ cup chopped dill

1 egg

1 teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon pepper

1 15-0z. can tomato sauce

½ cup sugar

2 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar

2 tablespoons vinegar

2 tablespoons prepared mustard

Heat oven to 350. Place ground beef, bead crumbs, onion, salt, pepper, egg, parsley, dill and half the tomato sauce in a mixing bowl.  Mix together with your hands. (The original recipe said to toss lightly with a fork… yeah, right!)  Place in a shallow baking dish and shape into a loaf.  Bake 50 minutes.

While meat is baking, make sauce. Combine remaining tomato sauce, sugar, brown sugar vinegar and prepared mustard in a saucepan. Cook over moderately low heat, stirring occasionally until mixture comes to a boil.  Pour over meat loaf and bake an additional 10 minutes.  Serves 6.
