Brushing the meatloaf with a mix of hoisin sauce and ketchup keeps it from drying out in the oven while also adding an extra layer of savory umami flavor. To prevent the slaw from becoming soggy, toss the veggies with the dressing just before serving. To get this dish on the table quickly on a weeknight, you can shape the meatloaf the night before; cover with plastic wrap, then brush with the glaze and bake the next day.
