These taste like a good old fashioned hamburger. They are so good! We usually double the recipe and use the meat in Stuffed baked potatoes on the second night.
- 2 lbs lean ground beef
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 1⁄2 cups beef broth
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 -2 onion, chopped
- 24 dill pickle slices
- 8 hamburger buns
- In a large skillet over medium heat, cook onions until brown and carmelized. Add ground beef and cook until brown.
- Add salt, pepper, garlic powder and beef broth to cover. Reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, until broth is gone, 15 to 30 minutes.
- Serve meat on buns topped with dill pickle slices and mustard.
- *We steam the buns on top of the meat (with lid on skillet) for a minute or two to get them nice and soft.
Love loose meat sandwiches!! I had to modify a little to use what I had on hand, 1 Tbl dried onions instead of fresh and beef bouillon dissolved in hot water for the broth. Per personal tastes, I decreased the amount of garlic powder, added 1 tsp sugar, and 2 tsp Kitchen Bouquet for a better color. And yes, "steamed" buns make all the difference! Dill pickle slices, yellow mustard, and finely diced onions are our toppings of choice.
This is so good. I have not had a loose meat sandwich before. I can't wait to try one the next time I'm on vacation. Hope I can fInd a place serving them. There's no place around here.
Can I just say how much I Love this sandwich!! It tastes just like a maid rite from my childhood. I used ground turkey instead of beef but with the beef broth and Monterey steak seasoning it tasted just like beef. Yum!! Thanks for the recipe and turkey was a great modification to make it a little healthier.
