Servings: 6

 

Ingredients

 

1 pound 90% lean/10% fat raw ground beef

1 cup onion(s), chopped

1/4 cup ketchup

2 Tbsp uncooked oat bran

1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce

1 Tbsp mustard

1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

How does this do in a slow cooker?

 

I'm planning on making for a part this Saturday (June 4th, 2005) so hopefully someone can tell me! Thanks in advance.

I never tried it with oat bran? When the recipe cqalls for oat bran is it asking for the cereal?

Another tip: After you have browned the hamburger, toss it in a strainer and rinse it off in the sink. Sounds really strange, but, a lot of fat goes down the drain. After rinsing, toss it back in the pot and resume cooking.

 

We do that whenever we use hamburger in a recipe.

I second the rinsing thing.....makes things much healthier for you.

 

I"m sure in a crockpot it would be fairly similar. You might need to decrease the tomato sauce a bit, but I'd make it this way first and see how it turns out. It would be very yummy!

 

Thanks for posting this! :)
