I would NOT add the salt next time. I modified this recipe a little - 2 lbs of ground beef, 3/4 C beef bouillon, and 1/4 C bacon grease. They were good, but WAY too salty. With the bouillon and they bacon grease, I don't think the extra tablespoon of salt is necessary.
Didn't give more stars as I didnt make the exact recipe. I normally use half beef and half lamb , a lot of garlic and no beef bouillon, one cup seems like an awful lot.
it would have been great, but i think the bouillon granulates made it waaay tooo spicy :-(
