Meat Cuts Reference
The Original "Tastee"
From the kitchen of Tastee Inn & Out Sioux City, Iowa

5 lbs. lean ground beef

3 medium onions, chopped fine
1 Tbsp salt
1 Tbsp creamy horseradish
1 Tbsp dry mustard 
1/4 tsp black pepper 
1/2 cup ketchup
1 cup water 
1 heaping Tbsp Accent
Dill Pickles
Cheddar Cheese

Put meat and onions in a kettle.

Put salt, creamy horseradish, dry mustard, black pepper and ketchup in a 16 oz. measuring cup. Mix and pour directly over meat. Stir with a wooden spoon.
Add 1 cup water to the same cup and stir around to get all the ingredients off the sides. Pour over meat.
Stir in Accent.
Stir side of pan a lot and stir the raw meat often until meat begins to boil. (This is to assure that the chunks are small - you don't want large chunks.)
Cover kettle and boil 25 minutes. Serve on hamburger buns with a slice of cheddar cheese and sliced dill pickles.

1) The traditional Tastee sandwich is always served on soft, plain hamburger buns. 
2) The creator of the recipe boiled the meat mixture 15 minutes then would put it in a slow cooker to serve. The loose meat will last about 4-5 hours in a slow-cooker.
