Iowa Maid Rite Recipe (serves 8)

  • 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
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 pounds UNCOOKED lean ground beef
  • 8 hamburger buns
  • Optional toppings:  cheese, ketchup, pickles, onions, mustard

Set slow cooker to high.  Add all ingredients (except beef).  Stir to combine. Add beef and stir until all combined and beef is completely coated.

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.
