The other day I wanted to find something to do with the pound of hamburg I had thawed out in the fridge, normally one would think of cheeseburgers or maybe making a form of chop suey (I call it goulash) out of it … but I wanted something different and I was craving a steak and cheese grinder …. that is when this recipe idea came to me and it was a HUGE hit in my house with the kiddos {well the 2 kiddos that actually TRY new foods} ….

Cheap Steak n Cheese Grinder RecipeIngredients:

  • 1 lb ground hamburg
  • Frying pan or skillet
  • Garlic Powder {teaspoon or so for flavor}
  • Shredded cheese {any kind you prefer will do}
  • Sandwich rolls or Grinder Rolls
  • Optional additions; other seasonings and/or chopped onions.

Make Your Ground Hamburg and Cheese Grinder

Ground the one pound of hamburg in a skillet or frying pan on stove over low heat. Make sure the meat is browned all of the way, no pink meat.

As the meat browns, sprinkle about a teaspoon of garlic powder {or other seasonings} to add flavor to your meat.

Drain the browned ground hamburg.  Keep brown hamburg in pan.

Sprinkle about 1/2 cup of shredded cheese on top of the browned hamburg while in the skillet or frying pan. Cover or simply let sit on hot burner of stove until cheese is melted.

Prepare the grinder or sandwich rolls, use a spatula to place meat into each roll in an even fashion. Add ketchup or mustard, whatever condiments you wish.

Serve with fries, chips, or a salad.

Servings: Approximately 6 sandwich rolls.

    This looks so good! It reminds me of a philly steak and cheese I used to get from a diner in college. I miss it and will have to try this!

    I’m with Tesa, this reminds me a lot of a Philly cheesesteak.
    I lived in NH for 2 years, I will never forget the first time someone asked me about grinders, I had no idea what they were talking about.
