Place carrots, celery and onion in the container of a food processor or blender; process with on/off action until finely chopped (or shred by hand). Combine vegetables and ½ cup broth in a frypan. Stir-cook over medium heat seven minutes until vegetables are tender-crisp. Combine in a mixing bowl the remaining broth with bread crumbs, parsley, egg, salt and papper, add braised vegetables and ground beef; mix thoroughly. Form into a firm loaf (2 inches thick). Place in a shallow baking dish large enough for juices to drain away from meat loaf. Bake in 350 degree oven 50 minutes until meat is no longer pink. Remove from oven and immediately place on a warm serving platter so fat will not be absorbed.
