Maid-Rite (Loose Meat Sandwich) Copycat
SERVES 8-12 | ACTIVE TIME 10 Min | TOTAL TIME 4 Hours 10 Minutes
Recipe adapted from Grandpa Jerry
1 cup warm water
1 tablespoon dried minced onion
1 teaspoon low sodium beef base (or a bouillon cube)
1 teaspoon low sodium chicken base (or a bouillon cube)
2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
3 pounds lean ground beef, uncooked
8 hamburger buns
Optional toppings: cheese, ketchup, pickles, onions, mustard
Set slow cooker to high. Add all ingredients (except beef). Stir to combine. Add beef and stir until all combined and beef is completely coated.
Cover and cook for 1 hour. Stir occasionally to break up ground beef. Uncover after 1 hour of cook time. Continue cooking on high for 2 ½ - 3 hours (with cover removed), until most of the liquid has cooked off. Continue to stir occasionally and break up any chunks of beef.
Using a slotted spoon, serve a heaping spoonful on a warm bun and load it up with your favorite toppings. We love cheese, ketchup and pickles!
Serve and enjoy!
