Re: The Dinner Thread
Maid-Rites. This is a takeoff on a recipe from the Maid-Rite chains located in Iowa and other Midwest locations.
Curious if anyone has ever heard about it, or had one from a Maid-Rite restaurant. They are not sloppy-joes by any means; it's ground beef cooked with a certain liquid and spice combination over a long time, making it very tender and flavorful, and served on a bun. Yummm.... I almost have the original Maid-Rite recipe down. Some say the original was made with Pepsi. Haven't tried that yet.
I also recently made Runzas. Probably very few people here have ever eaten at a Runza. They are a pastry (savory not sweet) wrapped around a filling of beef, onion, and cabbage, and sometimes cheese (tastes amazing and much better than it sounds). Sort of like an empanada in a way. The Runza chains are mainly in Nebraska though, with a couple in western Iowa, a couple in Kansas, and a couple in Colorado.
