Copycat Maid-Rites

Copycat Maid-Rites
(12 regular or 24 small servings)


3 lb. Ground Chuck (85/15 fat)
1 medium Yellow Onion, finely diced
3 cups Water
2 tbsp. Cider Vinegar
2 tbsp. Brown Sugar
2 tbsp. Soy Sauce
2 tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce
2 each Beef Bouillon Cubes
2 each Chicken Bouillon Cubes
2 tsp. Garlic Powder
1½ tsp. Seasoned Salt
½ tsp. Accent (optional)
½ tsp. Black Pepper


In a large skillet, place beef, onion and water over medium-high heat.  Using a spoon, break up beef as fine as possible while bringing mixture to a boil.  Continue cooking, breaking up and stirring mixture until no longer pink.  Lower temperature to medium-low and add all remaining ingredients to mixture.  Simmer mixture until liquid is reduced and mixture thickens.  Be sure to continue stirring and breaking up as needed.  Once done, use a slotted spoon to press mixture onto bun bottoms.  If using regular hamburger buns the yield should be 12.  But try Hawaiian rolls that come 24 to a package for smaller versions.  Top with condiments of your choice but yellow mustard and pickles are traditional. 

Note:               You will want to strain some of the liquid out of mixture when it is done.  They tend to be a little too sloppy if you don’t.
