Step 1: Defrost ground beef if frozen.
Step 3: preheat your oven to 350 degrees f or 176 degrees c. Don’t get them confused though. Bad.
Step 5: place thawed meat in bowl and add the egg. Add garlic powder, salt and pepper, and chili powder to taste. (i usually like 2 tsp of garlic powder, 2 tsp of salt, 1/2 tsp pepper, and 1/2 tsp chili powder; you may like more/less flavor).
Step 7: chop the portion of the onion very *very* small pieces. Unless you like to bit into onion. Go ahead. I won’t judge.
Step 9: you may also add a crushed dry beef bouillon cube for even more flavor. No pressure though. It’s your meatloaf.
Step 11: grease a meatloaf pan and put the meat mixture right in. Bake in your preheated oven for 30-45 minutes. More if you have a stubborn oven like me, less if you have a reasonable oven.
Step 12: cook your meatloaf until there isn’t any pink in the middle. You can check with a fork or knife in the middle.
Step 14: it might draw in the from the sides or shrink a little.
