  1. Before starting to cook the meat, heat the oven to 320°F.
  2. Heat a skillet with the olive oil and add the onions (chopped) together with the spices (salt, pepper and basil or thyme leaves). Cook this on medium-low heat for 10 minutes until the onions get soft, but don’t let them change their color to brown.
  3. After you finish with cooking, put the skillet off the stove and add the ⅓ cup of broth, the tomato sauce and the Worcestershire sauce. Mix the ingredients, gently stir few times and let it cool slightly.
  4. In a previously prepared bowl with the ground chuck, add the cooked mixture with onions and sauces, then add the bread crumbs, 2 large eggs (previously beaten) and slightly mix the ingredients with a fork or with a bigger spoon.
  5. Put the mixture on a sheet pan with baking paper and make a rectangular shape of it. Cover the top of the meatloaf with ketchup (you can add 1 tsp. of tomato sauce in it).
  6. Put the meatloaf in the oven and bake for 1 hour (maximum 1 hour and 15 minutes). Serve hot.
  1. Avoid using low-fat meat; it’ll dry easily while being cooked in the oven.
  2. Before adding the bread crumbs, soak them in milk so they can mix easier with the meat.
