Another quick fix!
Have you ever had a loose-meat sandwich? This is my version of a Greenville, Ohio classic. If you’ve not heard of maid-rites google it and read about their gum wall. It’s a Greenville staple. (Most of my family is from Greenville and I, Rachael, used to live there for a while when I was very young.) This traditional sandwich is very easy to make. This will feed a family of four and leave you with leftovers! Did I mention that you will only need four ingredients? That makes this meal easy and cheap! the beer makes it semi-unhealthy but the alcohol cooks off. For a quick side, I added some fresh veggies and some pre-made hummus. Violet loved eating all of this! I used a paleo bread that we are obsessed with from BaseCulture. If you are looking for paleo options check them out. All of their products are fantastic! Also, we are obsessed with cast-iron skillets. I’m waiting to get a nice pair of ceramic pots so we can get rid of all the Teflon toxins in our home.
- 1lb of FunGuy Farms Grass-fed & Pasture-Raised Ground Beef
- 1/4 cup mustard (I prefer organic if you can find it, I use two types of mustard-we like spicy mustard too)
- 1-16oz. Beer (I use whatever has been in the fridge the longest)
- 1 Medium yellow onion, finely diced
- Optional: Pickles & cheese (condiment toppers-I just sliced some dill pickles)
- On medium heat brown ground beef in skillet.
- While browning finely chop meat with your spatula.
- Finely dice the yellow onion and add to browning meat.
- When meat is fully browned add 1/4 cup of mustard mix and incorporate the beer.
- Let simmer on low heat until all of the beer has cooked off.
- Turn off heat & serve.
We drizzle our sandwiches with more mustard and add some sliced pickles. This is a family favorite! The beer adds a little tang and some sweetness to make your mouth water. Enjoy!
