1 Tbsp.Of Worcestershire sauce.

1 Tsp.Of dried thyme.

1/2 Tsp.Of salt.

1/2 Tsp.Of black pepper.


1/4 Cup.Of ketchup.

2 Tbsp.Of brown sugar.

1 Tbsp.Of apple cider vinegar.


1st Step

Begin by slicing the onions, bell pepper, and celery finely. Additionally, mince the garlic bulbs. Combine the milk, beaten eggs, ketchup, barbecue sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and minced garlic in a large mixing receptacle. Mix them thoroughly until every ingredient is incorporated.

2nd Step

Add the minced beef to the basin containing the liquid ingredients. Toss the breadcrumbs, sliced scallions, green bell pepper, and celery into the dish. Use dried thyme, dried oregano, salt, and black pepper to season the dish.

3rd Step

Using your hands or a wooden spoon, gently mix everything until it’s evenly combined. Be cautious not to overmix the meatloaf, as this can cause it to become stiff.

4th Step

Form two identical loaves from the meat mixture by dividing it into two equal portions. You can make them as thick or thin as you like, but for even cooking, strive for a uniform thickness.

5th Step

Coat a large skillet or sauté pan with culinary spray or a small amount of oil and heat it over medium-high heat. Transfer the meatloaves to the skillet with care and cook for approximately 5 to 7 minutes per side, or until a golden exterior forms.

6th Step

Prepare the glaze by combining ketchup, brown sugar, and apple cider vinegar in a small basin while the meatloaves are heating. Stir until the sugar is completely dissolved.

7th Step

Once both sides of the meatloaves have been seared, reduce the heat to low and generously coat each meatloaf with the glaze. The meatloaves should simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, or until they reach an internal temperature of 160 degrees Fahrenheit (71 degrees Celsius).

8th Step

Remove the skillet from the heat and allow the meatloaves to rest for dicing. Serve the stove-top meatloaf with your favorite side dishes, such as mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables, sliced into satisfying portions.
