Instructions Checklist

  • Cut 3/4 each of onion, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, and yellow bell pepper into thin slices. Dice remaining 1/4 of onion and peppers.

  • Mix ground beef, diced onion and peppers, tomato sauce, crushed crackers, brown sugar, egg, Worcestershire sauce, chicken stock, olive oil, steak seasoning, garlic, and pepper together in a bowl until well-combined.

  • Spread 1/2 of the beef mixture into the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Top meat with sliced onion and peppers, leaving a 1-inch border. Spread remaining beef mixture over vegetables, tucking in sides to seal vegetables in the center of the meatloaf. Pour ketchup over the top of the meatloaf.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, about 1 hour. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

I liked the idea of the pepper and onion stuffed meatloaf but we weren't crazy about this recipe. The meat mixture was very loose and seemed to have too much liquid in it. I had to add some additional crackers to help bind the mixture. Once cooked although the meat wasn't bad all I could taste was tomato and peppers. There wasn't much other flavor and seemed very one note and bland. I don't plan on making this again. Read More

This turned out beautifully! I actually made a mistake and combined all the veggies with the meat mixture, but it still turned out fine. The meat mixture was a little loose, but the flavor was terrific! Great recipe! Read More

The meat recipe was rather loose which confused me. But the flavor and texture once cooked was fantastic!! Have made it again and cannot wait until it is out of the oven. My husband and I ate all of the leftovers. Will make sure that I make it when the grandkids are over! They will love it!! Read More
