Soooooo good! My 4 yr old ate 1 1/2 of these. Hubby wasn't so thrilled with the idea of it, but then ate 2 himself! I had no spicy brown mustard so I added what I had....honey mustard! Turned out great! My Son said, "This recipe is a keeper Mom"! I agree. We added our veggies into our sandwiches to make it more like a loose meat burger. This is a stand alone or 'beef' it up kind of recipe. Thank you for it.
This was pretty good overall. The pickle made it a bit salty though and I cut them a little too thick too. Maybe dill relish would work as well and be easier? The beef had a nice flavor but you do have to like mustard as it is dominant. I think adding some garlic and onion to the beef would give additional flavor and some depth to this dish. I used garlic salt instead of plain. Mine took 15 min in the oven to heat through. I'd give this one 3.5 stars. Thanks Verno1, I enjoyed trying this and might make it again.
We really liked these. I added onion and garlic to the beef as I cooked it and left out the salt (I think the chicken broth was salty enough). I also didnt put on bread and put it in the oven. Instead I served with artisan bread fresh out of the oven and we each put our own mustard and pickles on. When my husband got seconds, he forgot the mustard and pickles. He thought it just wasn't the same without them so he got up to get them. Thanks for a great recipe.
Yum, we liked these a lot! If you're from Wichita, KS, you will recognize these as Nu Way burgers. These are pretty much exactly like the restaurants sandwiches, which is exactly what I was hoping for. I think next time I will add onions to the ground beef mixture, but other than that, it was perfect. The only thing that I changed when I made it this time was cutting the recipe in half because there were only two adults and one small child eating. Thank you for the recipe!
This is super tasty! I made enough for two people so I used 1 lb ground beef, half a can of beef broth, and lots of onion powder, worcester, and spicy mustard to simmer the meat in. I also added onion. It was great! I will make it again!
Even better than Tastee Inn burgers, and I never thought I would say that! Thanks for sharing this recipe!
Our family of 9 liked this recipe. We did half of the sandwiches with pickles and half without per kid request. We also left off the mustard on the bun and let everyone put on their own condiments when it came out of the oven.
Best loose meat recipe that I can find online. Made the recipe for four instead of twelve. DH is eating gluten free so we had mashed potatoes instead of buns. Had mixed veggies on the side. You could say we had deconstructed cottage pie.
