Introduction

Tangy and delicious. The sauce is taken from a family recipe for meatloaf, which people rave over. So much better than using ketchup. Tangy and delicious. The sauce is taken from a family recipe for meatloaf, which people rave over. So much better than using ketchup.

    I had to tweak this recipe a little, as I didn't have all the ingredients. Subbed in 1 tsp cumin & 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper for the chili powders, and added 1 green pepper. Left out the succanat as well. Still INSANELY good! Will use this again & again! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe with us!! - 7/3/10
