As a member of a fantasy football league, I made this the night before our draft to have while "studying." It's delicious in a sandwich or in a lettuce wrap with some ranch or bleu cheese dressing on the side. It works as either an appetizer or a main dish. Enjoy!
- 1 lb ground beef, thawed
- 1 -2 tablespoon olive oil, to coat saucepan
- 1⁄4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1⁄4 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 pinch garlic powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon steak seasoning, Texas-style (optional)
- 1⁄4 cup unsalted butter
- 1⁄2 cup hot sauce, preferrably Frank's Red Hot
- Heat and coat saucepan with olive oil, approx 1-2 tablespoons.
- Add beef to pan and brown, breaking up it but into small bits. Then, stir in spices.
- Make a well in the center of the beef and add butter. As butter starts to melt, start mixing with beef.
- Slowly stir in the hot sauce, before covering the pan with a lid. Next, lower the flame to allow the beef to simmer for about 5-10 minutes. Be sure to keep an eye on it. You don't want to see the sauce burn off.
- Serve when ready.
This was fantastic! I made exactly as directed, using Cholula for the hot sauce. (Its just the brand of hot sauce we prefer -- it seems to have more of a nice flavor along with the heat than most other brands). We used the meat as a buffalo sloppy joe. I toasted the bread. It made for a delicious (and HOT!) sandwich. I can see so many uses for the meat though -- on nachos, in taco salads, on a pizza, etc. Thanks so much for posting. It's not too often that even my husband rates something 5 stars!! Made for Pick-A-Chef Fall 2009. :)
