Rinse an 8x4 inch loaf pan with cold water. Shake out excess water but do not dry. Pack meat mixture into rinsed pan. Invert and unmold meatloaf onto a lightly oiled baking sheet.
Bake about 1 hour or until a meat thermometer inserted into center of loaf reads 160°F. Let stand 5 minutes. Drain off excess fat into a small bowl. Measure out 2 Tbs. fat and discard the remainder. Cover meatloaf with foil to keep warm. Heat reserved fat in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Sprinkle in flour and cook about 2 minutes, whisking constantly, until flour is lightly browned. Whisk in beef stock and bring to a boil, whisking until thick and smooth. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer 5 minutes, stirring often. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Slice meatloaf and pass a sauceboat of gravy on the side.
