2 teaspoons vegetable oil

1 green onion, minced

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 tablespoons minced green bell pepper

2 tablespoons grated carrot
2 eggs, beaten

1 cup milk

2 teaspoons salt

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1−1/2 pounds ground chuck

3/4 pound ground pork

1 cup bread crumbs (such as Progresso)

1/2 cup all−purpose flour
1/4 cup ketchup plus an additional 1/4 cup ketchup (for top)
Preheat oven to 350F.

Saute green onion, garlic, green pepper, and carrot in vegetable oil over medium heat for a couple minutes.

Combine beaten eggs with milk, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder in a medium bowl.

Mix bread crumbs and flour into ground chuck and ground pork with your hands.

Add egg and milk mixture, sauteed veggies, 1/4 cup ketchup and mix it up using your hands.

Press the mixture into a meat loaf pan (the kind of pan with drainage holes in the bottom) or a large loaf pan.

Bake for 30 minutes, then spread 1/4 cup of ketchup over the top of the meatloaf and bake for another hour.

Remove from oven and allow it to sit for awhile before slicing and serving.
