Crock pot meatloaf
I have never tried to cook one in my crock pot, but it would be nice to do this and have it ready when I come home instead of waiting an hour to bake it. What kind of results do you get?
What happens to all the grease? Cooking for 8 hours, does it reabsorb into the meat? Any way to avoid this? I usually use a lean hamburger 93%.
It has been awhile since I've done it (need a new crockpot!) , but always had good results. I've cooked the loaf on a rack and not (make an "x" out of 2 folded pieces of foil to help you lift the meatloaf out afterwards). Since you are using the lean hamburger you may not have much of a problem with the grease, therefore may not need the rack.
Let us know how it turns out!
I've done it with lean ground beef and it turns out fine. I layer the top w/ a ketchup sauce and it stays moist.
