  • 3 tablespoons soft bread crumbs
  • 3 tablespoons cold water
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

Baste often with beef broth.
4. Remove meat loaf from pot and hold warm in a serving dish. Transfer pan juices (including any remaining beef broth) to a small saucepan and heat over medium-high heat. Combine remaining water and cornstarch and stir into pan juices. Bring to a simmer and stir until thickened. Remove from heat and stir in sour cream; taste for seasoning.
