  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a baking dish.
  2. Mix ground beef with onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper in a bowl; form mixture into a loaf and place into prepared baking dish.
  3. Bring root beer, raisins, Worcestershire sauce, and ketchup to a boil in a saucepan; reduce heat and simmer until flavors have blended and raisins are plump, about 5 minutes. Pour raisin sauce over meat loaf.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until meat loaf is no longer pink inside and an instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the center of the loaf reads at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C), 25 to 30 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • I like to mix a few raisins into the meat loaf for added flavor. Also, baked beans are a great side dish.

it was a really good recipe, not to sweet, but the meatloaf shrunk in the oven.

Other than using a little fresh, sauteed onion and garlic, and cutting back on the raising a little, made as written and loved it.

Overall, this recipe was too sweet. I like a more savory meatloaf dish.
