For the meatloaf:
2 pounds lean ground beef
1 teaspoon salt
3 eggs, slightly beaten
3/4 cup panko crumbs
Mix the ground beef, salt, eggs, panko crumbs, and about half of the meatloaf sauce until well blended. Usually I would want to use my hands, but the sauce is hot, so be really careful. Mold on a quarter or half sheet pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour for two smaller loaves or 1 1/2 hours for 1 large loaf. Allow to stand for about 5 minutes before slicing and serve with the remaining sauce.
For the meat loaf sauce:
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 can tomato soup
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
fresh ground pepper, just grind some in
1/4 cup water
Cook the onion in the oil, or you can use shortening, until tender. Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer for a few minutes to blend the flavors.
