Iowa Maid Rites are incredibly delicious loose meat sandwiches that are full of flavor. An easy recipe that starts on the stove and finishes to perfection in the crock pot. A great dish for family dinners or pot lucks!
Heat oil in a large skillet with deep sides over medium heat.
Add onion, and saute until transluecent.
Add garlic, saute one more minute until fragrant.
Add beef, salt and pepper. Brown beef until no longer pink, drain any fat.
Add beef mix to a crock pot.
Combine together beef bouillon, beef broth, Worcestershire sauce and apple cider vinegar.
Pour over beef and stir to combine.
Cook on low for 3-4 hours, stirring occasionally.
Serve on sturdy buns.
If the maid rites will be in the crock pot on warm or low for longer than 4 hours or the beef seems to be getting too dry, add about ½ cup more of beef broth.
To make ahead and freeze, add all the ingredients to the pan after you cook and drain fat from the beef. Stir it up, remove from heat and let cool completely. Once cooled add the maid rites to a freezer safe container or zip top bag and freeze.
When ready to cook, thaw it overnight, add to crock pot and follow with the cooking instructions.
