Another Loose Meat (Maid-Rite) Recipe

Total Time

Another midwesterner here whose family loves these little gems. This recipe came from a 'best loosemeat recipe' contest in Iowa and this is the winner. My favorite as well ! The chicken broth gives it a very nice flavor.


  1. Cook hamburger and onion together until meat is browned.
  2. Drain grease.
  3. Put meat onion mix in a good size saucepan.
  4. Add both cans of chicken broth and a few shakes of pepper to pan.
  5. Bring to a boil.
  6. Turn down to medium low, stirring every 5 minutes until liquid is gone.
  7. This usually takes 20-30 minutes.
  8. Serve on soft hamburger buns with yellow mustard and pickle slices.
  9. Note: You can also add a couple shakes of chicken bouillon powder to the pot while cooking if you like.

We really enjoyed these sandwiches! I added a little salt for extra flavor. I used homeade chicken stock, so that really added to the flavor! Thanks for posting!
