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 


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 cheese.

1) The traditional Tastee sandwich is always served on soft, plain hamburger buns. 
2) Diana 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.
