Crockpot Tavern Beef

I don't remember where I got this recipe, but the poster was RecipeLu. It is like a loose meat sandwich. Reminds me of Leon's in Milwaukee. This doesn't have the 'tang' of a sloppy joe. We like it!

Crockpot Tavern Beef

2 1/2 pounds lean ground beef(we used just 2 pounds)
1 large onion -- peeled and diced
1 cup ketchup
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups beef broth or water
8 hamburger buns -- toasted

In a skillet, brown and crumble ground beef; drain well. Place beef and
remaining ingredients except hamburger rolls in a crockpot. Cover and
cook on LOW for 6 to 12 hours. Taste for seasoning before serving and
correct if necessary. Spoon over toasted hamburger buns.


  1. I've never heard of a "loose meat" sandwich.

    And surely you didn't mean moose meat! LOL

  2. Loose meat sandwiches are prevalent in the MIdwest. We call them canteens, maid rites and etc. Love them so much. Some loosemeats are just steamed with nothing but salt and pepper, fantastic.
