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


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.

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.
