Chopped Beef Au Casserole

  • 1 1/2 pounds clod of beef, ground
  • Tabasco sauce
  • 1/2 cup tomato relish
  • 1 can beets

Mix chopped beef with tomato relish. Add 1/4 teaspoon tabasco sauce (more if desired). Season well with salt. Put in glass casserole (or oven safe container) and bake two hours, basting frequently with a high quality of table sauce. A few strips of bacon across the top of any meat loaf adds to its richness, and improves flavor. Serve garnished with 1 can beets, quartered. Serves five people.
