Crock-Pot Loose Meat Sandwiches
Loose meat sandwiches are a classic mid-western dish that is kind of hard to explain to someone who has never had one before.
They are kind of like sloppy joes, but without the tomato based sauce. There is a nice beefy flavor from the ground beef and beef bullion, and little tang from the vinegar and Worcestershire sauce and just a little sweetness from the brown sugar and cooked onion.
To start with you brown your ground beef (extra lean preferred) and onion in a skillet on the stove-top. Then add the meat and everything to your slow cooker and let it cook on LOW for just a few hours. This really allows the flavors to meld together. And, if you are serving a lot of people you can just flip the slow cooker to the WARM setting, set out buns, rolls, cheese and other toppings and let folks make their own sandwiches.
When ground beef goes on sale at the grocery store I will often make a double (or even triple batch) of loose meat and bag it up in freezer bags so that I have dinner or lunches that I can just pull out of the freezer and just heat up.
I have even been known to take a frozen bag, a package of hamburger buns and some cheese on over to a sick friend so that they don’t have to cook dinner. Always a hit.
