Ingredients
  1. 1 tablespoon good olive oil
  2. 3 cups chopped yellow onions (3 onions)
  3. 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
  4. 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  5. 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  6. 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  7. 1/3 cup chicken stock or broth
  8. 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  9. 2 1/2 pounds ground chuck
  10. 1/2 cup plain dry bread crumbs
  11. 2 extra-large eggs, beaten
  12. 1/2 cup ketchup
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a medium saute pan. Add the onions, thyme, salt, and pepper and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, for 8 to 10 minutes, until the onions are translucent but not brown. Off the heat, add the Worcestershire sauce, chicken stock, and tomato paste. Allow to cool slightly.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the ground chuck, onion mixture, bread crumbs, and eggs, and mix lightly with a fork. Don't mash or the meat loaf will be dense. Shape the mixture into a rectangular loaf on a sheet pan covered with parchment paper. Spread the ketchup evenly on top. Bake for 1 to 1 1/4 hours, until the internal temperature is 160 degrees F and the meat loaf is cooked through. Serve hot.
Notes
  1. A pan of hot water in the oven, under the meat loaf, will keep the top from cracking. Pairs well with Merlot.
