MAID RITE Sandwiches (copy cat)

1 cup warm water
1 tablespoon dried minced onion
1 teaspoon low sodium beef base (or a bouillon cube)
1 teaspoon low sodium chicken base (or a bouillon cube)
2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar (white sugar can be used if brown isn't available)
2 tablespoons white or apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
3 pounds lean ground beef, uncooked
8 hamburger buns
Original toppings:  dill pickle chips, onions, mustard
(in the Maid-Rite Diner's they do not even have ketchup there, they are usually topped with only mustard and dill pickle chips)


Set slow cooker to high.  Add all ingredients (except beef).  Stir to combine. Brown the beef and drain fat, add beef and stir until all combined and beef is completely coated.

Use a potato masher to mash beef with juice every 45 mins. or so to get it to a fine texture.

Cover and cook for 1 hour.  Stir occasionally to break up ground beef.  Uncover after 1 hour of cook time.  Continue cooking on high for 2 ½ - 3 hours (with cover removed), until most of the liquid has cooked off.  Continue to stir occasionally and break up any chunks of beef.

Using a slotted spoon, serve a heaping spoonful on a warm bun and

load it up with your favorite toppings.
