Where I live in the Midwest, loose meat sandwiches are a cult classic. Speckled around Missouri you’ll find tiny little locally owned burger joints with such loyal followers that they go back generations. If you’ve never gotten to enjoy a loose meat sandwich ordered standing outside at the pickup window on a nice Spring day, then most of us around here would say you’re missing out!

Today’s recipe is a copycat version of our favorite loose meat sandwich, the beef burger,  from our favorite little burger joint, the Burger Bar & DariMaid in Carrollton, Missouri. My husband’s family calls these burgers “Juicy Burgers” and they all love them so much that his Grandma uses her connections to get the mix and make them for all 30 plus of us several times a year.

I’ve been working on this copycat recipe for quite a while and after lots of trial and error I am excited to share with you what my husband deems, the closest juicy burger copycat. Most loose meat sandwiches are in fact pretty loose, I’ve found that the meat just crumbles out of the bun and makes a mess. These loose meat burgers simmer in a sauce that helps them stick together better. A spoonful of ground beef filling for the loose meat sandwiches

I hope that you’ll enjoy these juicy loose meat burgers as much as we do. I love mine piled high with pickles and chopped onions and smothered in ketchup!
