  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat, and cook and stir until the beef is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink. Drain and discard any excess grease. Stir in the chicken broth, Worcestershire sauce, brown mustard, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, and simmer uncovered until the liquid has evaporated, about 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat an oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  3. Spread the desired amount of yellow mustard on the top half of each bun. Place 2 pickle slices on the bottom half, then spoon 2 to 3 tablespoons of the ground beef mixture over, and top with the other half of the bun to make a sandwich. Repeat until all the sandwiches are complete.
  4. Wrap each sandwich individually with aluminum foil and place on a baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven until the bread is warmed through, about 10 minutes.

  • Depending upon the size of your hamburger buns, this recipe may yield more servings. Feel free to freeze the leftover meat for future meals or lunches.

This was pretty good overall. The pickle made it a bit salty though and I cut them a little too thick too. Maybe dill relish would work as well and be easier? The beef had a nice flavor but you ...

I made as is. Some of my family members don't like pickles so I had some with and without. Since I tasted both, I have to admit that the pickles give it a nice kick. While doing AS IS, I thou...

We really liked these. I added onion and garlic to the beef as I cooked it and left out the salt (I think the chicken broth was salty enough). I also didnt put on bread and put it in the oven....

Yum, we liked these a lot! If you're from Wichita, KS, you will recognize these as Nu Way burgers. These are pretty much exactly like the restaurants sandwiches, which is exactly what I was hopi...

What a great lunch! Scored ground sirloin for $2.50lb and wanted something other than tacos, hamburgers or pasta w/meat sauce and THESE hit the mark. My husband does not like dill pickles so pu...

LOVED these! I live in the midwest and near my hometown we have a Maidrite sandwich shop. These are sooooo close to the taste of their maidrites. I omitted the 1/4 of yellow mustard and they ...

Best loose meat recipe that I can find online. Made the recipe for four instead of twelve. DH is eating gluten free so we had mashed potatoes instead of buns. Had mixed veggies on the side. You...

This is super tasty! I made enough for two people so I used 1 lb ground beef, half a can of beef broth, and lots of onion powder, worcester, and spicy mustard to simmer the meat in. I also added...
