Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Take an 8 ounce cup or jar and add the ketchup, mustard, horseradish, Worchestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. This should fill the cup. If not, add more ketchup. Stir thoroughly untill all ingredients are completely mixed. You now have the basic spices.
  2. Place the beef in a flat bottom aluminum kettle. Put the seasoning you just made into the kettle on top of the beef.
  3. Fill the same cup or jar with warm water, rinsing it around to get all the fine seasoning out and pour it into the kettle.
  4. Next, fill the jar with finely ground yellow onions and empty into the kettle.
  5. Add the heaping teaspoon of Accent.
  6. Take a wooden spoon to stir and mix all the ingredients in the kettle thoroughly.
  7. Put the kettle on your stove over a low flame and stir constantly with the wooden spoon for about 15 minutes or until the meat is broken apart finely. Increase the heat to medium and let the mixture come to a boil. Let boil for 25 minutes. Stir with the wooden spoon every few minutes to assure that it doesn't stick to the bottom of the kettle and to avoid lumps.
  8. Usee a regular metal straining spoon to portion out the meat. Serve on buns.
