Loose Meat Sandwiches

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Mika G.

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.

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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook onions until brown and carmelized. Add ground beef and cook until brown.
  2. 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.
  3. Serve meat on buns topped with dill pickle slices and mustard.
  4. *We steam the buns on top of the meat (with lid on skillet) for a minute or two to get them nice and soft.
