Andy Griffith’s Ground Steak Sandwich
2 pounds beef chuck, ground (80/20 is crucial to the success)
1 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons mayonnaise
Coleslaw (prepared, 1 cup)
(2 tomatoes, sliced)
Start by browning the beef in the pan, chopping up so the meat takes on a “sloppy joe” appearance. Drain ground meat. Pepper meat liberally! This is supposed to be redolent in the taste of ground black pepper.
Whisk together flour, water, and salt. Add to skillet, and allow to come to a boil. Lower heat and simmer until mixture has thickened.
Serve on buns with mayo, your favorite coleslaw, and a slice of tomato.
