Actually, a Maid-Rite is a franchised sandwich, A special steam table is involved, and meat is pulverized using a hand mixer while it is browning, I think. Remember the Roseanne show and the talk of "loose meat sandwiches?"
Anyway, here is kind of a home version:
1-1/2 pounds ground beef
1 medium onion chopped
1 can chicken broth
salt and pepper to taste
Brown meat; add onion, cook until onion turns clear; drain; meat should be very crumbly. Add broth and continue cooking until most of the liquid evaporates.
I guess I was using the term, maidrite, to include sloppy joes, beefburgers, etc.
My family likes what we call "Spoonburgers" -ground beef browned, add onion, chicken gumbo soup, a little mustard and soy sauce, served on hamburger buns
