Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Mix egg, bread crumbs, salt, and black pepper together in a large bowl. Break ground beef into small pieces and add to the bowl; mix well with your hands until beef is evenly moistened. Shape the beef mixture into four patties.

  • Heat a skillet over medium heat. Cook patties in hot skillet until completely browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side; remove to a platter and drain grease from skillet.

  • Return skillet to medium heat. Stir tomato sauce, green onions, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, and yellow mustard together in the skillet. Gently lie the patties into the sauce; bring liquid to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until the patties are very firm, hot, and grey in the center, about 10 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

Cook's Note:

I have also baked these in the oven at 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) instead of frying and they came out just fine.

Nothing fancy here just meatloaf good old comfort food perfect for a weekday dinner. I cut back a little on the brown sugar (our personal taste preference) but the ground beef patties with the sauce really do taste like oven-baked meatloaf. Moving forward I will add some additional seasonings to the patties. Since we can grill all year in Florida I'll grill the patties and then put them in the sauce to simmer on the stovetop (eliminating the splatter from the stovetop). Simple to make and quick to get on the dinner table a winner in this house. Only one thing that I'lll miss...my leftovers for meatloaf sandwiches.:-) Thanks for sharing courteneynjones. Read More

This recipe is a good simple dinner. I served them over noodles. The mustard was a bit strong for our liking. Will adjust next time. Read More

I was looking for a easy recipe calling for ground beef with a little added touch and this hit the spot. The only change I made was to leave out the green onions, which I did not have on hand and can be a digestive issue for my husband and me, and the amounts to make two patties instead of four. The tomato sauce was tasty. I will make it again. Read More
