There was a place in Saginaw Michigan located in the Baranger Building that sold "loose" or "scrambled" hambergers . Looking for something similiar. Help Please.
I've never really heard of these..at first all I could think of was sloppy joes...here's a recipe I found on cooks.com: I just googled it. there are actually more recipes if you wan to check them out.
They sound good..Maybe I'll try them.
RE: 'Loose Meat' Sandwiches, anyone ever have one?Posted by: 22busy Posted on: 12/3/2005 8:19:20 AM#R6805722In our neck of the woods we call them taverns--some call them maid rites, sloppy joes and various other names.The recipes are as varied as the names this sandwich goes by, LOL.I start with a a simple recipe. Brown ground beef and chopped oinons, add salt and pepper to taste.Most recipes I have seen use ketchup, a little mustard ( as in 1 tsp. only) and chili powder. Some add just little Worcestershire. One of my friends likes hers sweeter and so she adds brown sugar to her ketchup.
1 pound twice-ground beef I used the regular grind
1 tablespoon dried onion flakes
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoons prepared yellow mustard
1 (12-ounce) can or bottle of beer (do not use light beer)
In a medium frying pan, brown the beef over medium-high heat, then drain it in a colander. Return beef to the pan and stir in the onion flakes, pepper, salt, sugar, mustard, and beer. Simmer, partially covered, over medium heat until liquid is evaporated, about 30 minutes.
4 hamburger buns I used whole-wheat buns
fresh onion, chopped
prepared yellow mustard
Spoon beef into buns and serve immediately with condiments. Be sure to give everyone a spoon so they can scoop up any stray beef that escapes.
Yield: 4 sandwiches

Ground Beef1 tsp. ground pepper1 tsp. sugar2 tsp. prepared mustard6 oz. beer, water or beef brothsalt (to taste)Combine ground beef, pepper, sugar, mustard, salt in the top of a double-boiler and add beer or other liquid. Cover top and heat for one-half hour, stirring occasionally. The longer it cooks, the more the flavors blend together. Toward the end, uncover to allow some of the liquid to boil off.Use a slotted serving spoon to serve on hamburger buns with mustard, dill pickles and chopped onion. Serves 6.Notes: Use prepared yellow salad mustard, such as that for hamburgers or hot dogs. Do not use dry powdered mustard, or a Dijoni or Poupon style mustard. Use a good quality, low fat ground beef. A genuine Maid Rite is steam cooked and is very finely ground beef.My note: I don't use a double boiler; just a regular saucepan and let the liquid cook out. I like to use beef broth.=============================

Get out a cast iron skillet-they are the best for loosemeats-or other kind if you have no iron skillet.2. Meltfat over medium heat and lightly salt bottom of skillet.3. Break ground beef up in skillet and start crumbling it with the back of a wooden spoon-this is very important-the meat must end up being cooked up into small crumbles.4. Add chopped onion while browning meat.5. Keep working with the back of spoon to break up meat.6. When meat is browned, drain off any fat and return meat to skillet.7. Add mustard, vinegar, sugar, and just enough water to barely cover meat in the pan.8. Cook, at a simmer, till water is all cooked out-between 15-20 minutes.9. Adjust salt and pepper to taste.10. Heat your hamburger buns-they're traditionally steamed for loosemeats-I like mine toasted lightly-do it the way you like it.11. When buns are warm, put yellow mustard on them and add some dill pickle slices-I put on lots!12. *Ifyou start changing this recipe and using things like olive oil for the fat and dijon or honey mustard for the yellow mustard, you will not get the traditional yummy taste of a loosemeat sandwich.13. Likewise, don't add any liquid smoke or worcestershire sauce.14. Make them just like this the first time so you can sample the simplicity of this famous Midwestern treat.15. If you want to start making changes after that by all means do so but I'd like you to taste the original recipe at least once.16. Serve with homemade potato salad and chips.

Loose Meat Hamburgers...It reminds me of the show "Roseanne" she and her sister Jackie opened a restaurant and their speciality was loose meat sandwiches. they opened a restaurant called the, Lunchbox....I think the shows setting was Michigan..right in your neck of the woods. I remember when they were trying to perfect the recipe of a competitor...I have to admit...they did look good when they were eating them....

Add oil and meat to the pan and brown the meat, breaking it up with the back of a wooden spoon as it cooks. Add chicken stock to the meat. Season the meat with paprika, Worcestershire, salt and pepper. When the liquid comes to a bubble, reduce heat to simmer. Cook meat 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.Pile meat into buns or rolls and top with raw finely chopped onions.
