    Question on #6 you state cook on low. Then right next to that you write continue to cook to cook on high for a few more hours. Lid off. So which is it? Cook on Low or High??

      I tried this recipe and it’s very good and very close to the real thing. There is an error on the instructions. After cooking for an hour covered it say uncover and turn the slow cooker to low and then cook on high for 2-3 hours. I am sure the word high shouldn’t be there.

        What does it mean by base? Bouillon cubes or liquid stock? What have folks used?

        Hi Julia, I just use the Better than Bouillon powder. Or, you can use the cubes. I hop you love these like we do!

      Step 6 says turn to low & continue cooking on HIGH for 2 1/2 – 3 hours with the lid off. So is it LOW or HIGH??

    On High, and if you want real original maid rite you need one pound lean ground beef, 1/2 pound ground beef tongue and 1/2 pound ground beef heart, and it shouldn’t be topped with ketchup or catsup, unless your turning it into a sloppy Joe ! — Maid Rites are served with pickle, fine chopped onion, and mustard. that’s it —
    and we made 5 pounds at a time, put it in buckets, kept in a cooler and added to trough as needed. if it was a slow day we would add a pitcher of water to the trough, as it would start to dry out.

      1 hour High, then 5 hours on Low, is alternative cooking recipe in crock pot, remove lid last 2 hours, this method.
      [adding ketchup and you’re making sloppy joes.]

    Do you brown the ground beef first or put into crock uncooked?

    Not like an Iowa Maid-Rite. Good, but not the old loved commercial Maid-Rite.

    I’ll have to try your recipe… considering I grew up in Iowa in the 50’S and had Homemade maid rites at least once a week… Your recipe is nothing like them… Never fixed in a crockpot no such thing back the …lol… done in a cast-iron frypan on top of the stove or an Electric fry pan…if you were making a large batch you did it in a roasting pan!

    Why do you use chicken base in beef recipe? If my husband and I like these three recipes I will purchase the cookbook.

    The part where it says turn on low and continue cooking on high for 21/2 to 3 hours with the lid off has me confused. How can it be on low yet cook.on high for 21/2 to 3 hours with lid off
