This recipe comes to us from Dave Fisher.

1 cup of Hunts tomato sauce (GF)
1 ½ tablespoons gluten-free barbecue sauce
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 ½ lbs. ground sirloin (10% fat)
6 tablespoons all-purpose flour (rice flour or Bette Hagman flour mix)
¾ teaspoon salt (I use less)
1/3 teaspoon onion powder (McCormick)
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine the tomato sauce, barbecue sauce and sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Heat the mixture until it begins to bubble, stirring often, then remove it from the heat. In a large bowl, add all but 3 tablespoons of the tomato sauce to the meat. Use a large wooden spoon or your hands to work the sauce into the meat until it is very well combined.

Combine the remaining ingredients with the ground sirloin -- flour, salt, onion powder and ground pepper. Use the wooden spoon or your hands to work the spices and flour into the meat. Load the meat into a loaf pan. Wrap foil over the pan and place it into the oven for 30 minutes.

After 30 minutes, take the meatloaf from the oven, remove the foil and drain the fat. Using a knife, slice the meatloaf all the way through into 8 slices while it is still in the pan. This will help to cook the center of the meatloaf. Pour the remaining 3 tablespoons of sauce over the top of the meatloaf, in a stream down the center. Dont spread the sauce. Place the meatloaf back into the oven, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes or until it is done. Remove and allow it to cool for a few minutes before serving. Serves 4.
