Here is a Meatloaf recipe I came across. Just to let you know, there are many Crock Pot cook books out there that have some great ideas for you. You might want to check them out.

Shabbos Meatloaf? Hey! Why not!

4 to 6 servings




  1. Make two long strips of aluminum foil, long enough to sit in the crock pot and overhang at sides. Place them in the crock pot so that they form a cross on the bottom of the pot. When the meatloaf is cooked you will use this to remove it from the crock – so make sure the ends are long enough to gather on top of the loaf.
  2. Place all meatloaf ingredients in a very large mixing bowl.
  3. Mix with hands (yes – will need to get those hands dirty for this one) until well combined.
  4. Shape with hands into a large round meatloaf about ½ an inch smaller than your crock pot.
  5. Place loaf into crock pot, on top of the aluminum foil strips.
  6. Mix all sauce ingredients together.
  7. Pour over top of meatloaf.
  8. Cover and cook for 8 to 9 hours on Low OR 4 to 6 hours on High.
  9. Remove from crock pot using aluminum strips as handles. Cut into slices and enjoy with roast vegetables or steamed vegetables and mashed potato.

Absolutely delicious
