1/3 cup tomato paste (sub for ketchup)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup pear sweetened habanero jam (sub for crushed pineapple, drained)
1 pound ground beef (85%)
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs or cooked quinoa
1 egg, beaten
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 onion, minced
3 dashes light soy sauce seasoning (original recipe called for Worcestershire sauce)
Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Stir tomato paste, brown sugar, jam, and 1 dash sauce together in a small bowl; reserve.
Combine the ground beef, bread crumbs, egg, garlic, onion, salt and 2 dashes of sauce in a large bowl; mix well. Pat meat mixture into a 9×5 inch loaf pan.
Bake meatloaf in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Remove from oven; pour reserved mixture over loaf. Return to the oven; bake until no longer pink in the center, about an additional 30 minutes.
