Nuways A/K/A Maid-Rites

READY IN: 20mins




  • Pour water into a cast iron pan.
  • Add l lb. ground beef and keep stirring until meat is broken into very small pieces.
  • Bring to a boil and cook until water is reduced by half. (What happens is the beef browns, breaks up into smaller and smaller pieces, and becomes tender, while the water reduces and packs in the flavor. The fat is left in the water, not on the beef, while the beef is juicy.).
  • Ready the buns with French’s mustard, and a large dill pickle slice, Dice an onion and pull out a slice of American cheese.
  • Dip a 1/2 cup strainer into the beef mixture, push the liquid through it with a spoon to the desired "juiciness". Fry separately in a cast iron skillet for a few minutes, until the beef is lightly browned. Salt the meat; add the diced onions and cheese. Put the buns together and cut in two pieces.
  • Cover the hot sandwich (with a deep lid or bowl, or wrap in waxed paper) for a couple of minutes to steam the bun and allow the cheese to melt.
  • Serve immediately with a cold root beer, and blast your way to the past!
