Maid-Rites are also known as “loose meat sandwiches” because that is essentially what they are.  They are made by simmering ground beef with beef broth, a few basic condiments, a little brown sugar, and some spices.  Classic Maid-Rites also must be served with pickles and yellow mustard.  It just isn’t a Maid-Rite without those two things (though topping them with ketchup is done quite frequently, too).  They are simple, yet delicious.  So delicious, in fact, that there is even a restaurant chain based off of this classic sandwich.
