ingredients

1 pound ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
12 ounces Coca-Cola
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
1 tablespoon black pepper (or to taste)
soft hamburger buns
yellow mustard
pickles

directions

Brown ground beef and onions making sure to crumble the meat to a fine texture(a potato masher works good for this). As the ground beef and onions are browning be sure to drain all the grease off as it's cooking.

When the ground beef and onions are cooked add worchestershire sauce, stir and then add the coke. Cook this till all the juice is absorbed into the meat mixture...about 20 minutes. You can also put this mixture in a crockpot and cook on low 4 to 6 hours.

Serve on buns with mustard and pickles.

COMMENT:
Is one tablespoon pepper correct? I'm thinking 1 tsp?

Made this in the crock for a work party. Everyone thought it was incredible! I did cut down the pepper (which should probably be 1 teaspoon, not one tablespoon?).

Being from the midwest (Iowa), I have loved these sandwiches all my life. I didn't want relocating to NC to get in the way of my Maid-Rites. So since there are 0 places to get this sandwich, I make them myself, something I never did in IA. Great recipe. Kids and NC native-husband loves these!! Thanks!

We have made these twice. I think they come very close to the real thing. This recipe is now one of my wife's favorites.

I worked at an original Maid Rite back in the 70's.This is the original recipe,EXCEPT-you do not add onions to the beef.An original is MEAT ONLY!You add the onions and other condiments on the bun!!

COMMENT:
I have grown up eating at the original maid rite for 34 years in muscatine iowa. The original maid rite calls for root beer in the meat.

COMMENT:
Anyone who has had an original Maid-Rite KNOWS you don't put ketchup on a Maid-Rite! That is almost sinful! Mustard and Chopped onions only!

COMMENT:
Actually, I used to work in a real Maid-Rite. You use soy granuals(found at a health food store) and kitchen bouquet mixed w/water. Just brown the ground beef, drain, then add about 1/4 C. granuals and kitchen bouquet mixture to moisten. Don't forget the pepper!

REVIEW: recipe rating
It is refreshing to see a "real" clone of the famous Maid-Rite Sandwich. Having been born and raised in Marshalltown, Iowa, home of the second franchise, I know what a Maid-Rite really is! And some of the abominable recipes that people have come up with raise my shackles! Congratulations on keeping it pure and simple!

REVIEW: recipe rating
The original Maid-Rite Sandwich never contained anything but 100% ground beef (the whole beef), salt, and optional ingredients were mustard, pickle, onion. I know because I grew up in Marshalltown, Iowa, the home of the second franchise ever.

REVIEW: recipe rating
These were very good. I will definitely make them again, but it says that it takes 30 minutes to make. With browning the meat slowly and then cooking off the broth it was almost an hour. But worth it.

REVIEW: recipe rating
These were ok, but not even close to the real "Maid-Rites."
