amber, they are close to a sloppy joe, but no gravy, just a sort of natural jus from the steaming. i've had them in the quad cities on the mighty miss.. they're fantastic.

while des moines is the corp hq for maidrites, www.maidrite.com, i've heard of few places lay claim to their invention, including davenport.

i'm not sure what we're having tonight. i went to a farmer's market yesterday and loaded up (4lbs of stringbeans for a buck, 5 artichokes for a buck, a huge head of 'scarole for a buck, a giant jar of annato seed for $1.50, etc.). also, i hit a halal meat market (lol, hey babe, nice burqa) and got some ground beef and lamb steaks, so i may make something with them.

Bucky, natural jus from steaming it sounds to me, but then again I have never tried it. Wouldnt that mostly be water and fat from the beef?

yup, but that's why you're supposed to use the best quality ground meat.

there's a slew of recipes out there that have slight additions for that special flavor, but no one seems to be able to nail down an original recipe, except high quality steamed beef and s&p.

DH won't be here for dinner and I've eaten lentil soup for lunch the last 2 days til it is gone. I may have to cook something. I was thinking about going up to the seafood place and get a plate, but don't really want to leave the house again til I get some of the mess I've made cleaned up. I'm cleaning the pantry and some closets and it looks worse before it gets better. I may have bacon and eggs.

your right, James is a very nice person. Him and Barbara are both very sweet!! I'm glad that you see the joke now. I didn't realize you weren't familiar with them or I wouldn't have teased you like that.

Sure, 86% sounds great. I would definately not use the oatmeal. From those recipes listed, here's the one I'd use:

Maid Rites

2 T. oil
1-1/2 to 2 lbs ground beef
1 small onion, diced
1 (14-oz.) can clear chicken broth

In large skillet brown ground beef in oil using a back of a fork to crumble. Brown until no longer pink in color. Add onion and broth. Simmer on very low heat until most of the broth has been absorbed. Ladle on buns, then top with yellow mustard and dill pickle chips.

Amber, it may sound like a sloppy Joe, but it's not really not supposed to be. A Maidrite is basically just steamed ground beef without all the added goodies. It sounds plain, and you're tempted to doctor it up, but it has a good beefy flavor just as it is.

HB picked a bag of Maidrites on the way home from work not long ago, and we had them for supper. I ate 2 and he ate 4.
