Hi, new to this website here. Stumbled upon the Maid Rite forum, I know it was posted a long time ago, but I live in Marshalltown and make maid rites often as my family LOVE them! I don't know how Taylors Maid Rite makes theirs, but my recipes is extremely simple, requires no time and is SOOOOO GOOOOD! I have family request them whenever they come over for dinner.
I use about 2 pounds beef, finely chopped. They are very loose meat sandwiches. I add 1 can of beer, about 1/2 cup finely chopped onion. Let it slow cook for at least an hour, hour and a half. Take lid off and let liquid evaporate a bit. More is better. That is it. Add nothing more. I do know some that add a bit of mustard or a few other things. I know it seems too simple, but it is awesome. You can use 1 can of chicken broth in place of the beer as well. I personally like that flavor of the beer better. I use Busch Lite, just because it is the kind my hubby drinks, so I have it on hand. Just thought I'd share! Sounds so good talking about it, I think I will make them tonight! :)
