For the Meatloaf

  • lbs lean ground-beef
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire-Sauce
  • 8 oz part skim shredded mozzarella-cheese
  • ½ tsp fresh ground-pepper
  • 1 tsp Italian-Seasoning
  • 1 small yellow-onion, shredded
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp ground-mustard
  • 1 egg, lightly-beaten
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ cup milk

For the Glaze

  • 2 tbsp sugar free ketchup
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire-sauce
  • cup barbecue-sauce
  • chopped fresh parsley, for garnish
  • 1 tsp Sriracha-sauce
  • 2 tbsp honey


  • Line a 6-quart slow-cooker or a larger slow-cooker using a huge sheet of aluminum-foil. Grease with cooking spray and put aside.
  • In a large mixing-bowl combine ground-beef, breadcrumbs, garlic, onions, Italian-Seasoning, salt, pepper, ground-mustard, egg, milk & Worcestershire-sauce. Mix together with your hands until blended, but don't overmix.
  • Split meat in half.
  • Press one half the meat to the base of the toaster.
  • Spread shredded mozzarella down the middle, leaving approximately ½ inch space around the sides.
  • Top with remaining meat & form it into a loaf, and press around to seal the borders. Put aside.
  • In a small mixing bowl whisk together the barbecue-sauce, honey, ketchup, Worcestershire-sauce, along with Sriracha-sauce.
  • Brush half the glaze over the meatloaf. Reserve the remaining half to later.
  • Cover and cook on LOW for 6hours on HIGH for 3-4hours. Meatloaf is completed when temperature reaches 160˚F within an Instant Read Thermometer.
  • Lift the meatloaf by holding on the foil, move to a baking dish & top with the remainder of the glaze.
  • Pop it under the broiler for 3-4 mins, or until browned.
  • Remove from oven and let rest for 10 mins. Then garnish with parsley and serve.
