Beef-Hawaiian Haystacks

beef hawaiian haystacks

I am sure you all are so use to the chicken Hawaiian haystacks, and are super excited to try these beef haystacks. Trust me they will not disappoint. Growing up my mom and everywhere I ever had haystacks, they were made with chicken and the chicken gravy. They were so good, and one of my favorite meals. Which brings up memories so I am totally going to have to make them soon as well. Okay back to my story. Well, I had never had beef haystacks until I married my husband. His mom always had made beef haystacks. Matthew told me about them and then finally I had them at his parents. They are amazing. Oh and so much easier then the chicken gravy ones. Unless you are good at making gravy those can be hard. I will admit I am not an expert at gravy. I am still learning. They are called haystacks because they are literally a stack of different toppings, rice and a meat. Then you top with with cheese and sauce. My mouth is watering telling you all about them, so I hope that yours is too, and you can’t wait to make them for your family or friends. Or just a quite night alone at home. Hope you all have a enjoyable weekend, and enjoy yourself some haystacks.

1 lb of ground hamburger

1/2 onion sliced thinly

1/2 potato, peeled and grated

6-7 T of apple cider vinegar

1 1/2 t of garlic salt


1-2 cups of cooked brown rice

Toppings: All are optional

diced tomatoes

diced bell peppers

pineapple tidbits

sliced olives

Sliced lettuce

Grated cheddar cheese

chopped green onion

1 packet of Hidden Valley Ranch mixed to make the dressing ( you can use the bottle ranch, but I prefer the packet. It just tastes better on this recipe)

Note: You will need mayonnaise and milk to make the dressing as well.

Put rice on to cook. Brown the hamburger, then add onions and potatoes. Cook on medium heat for about 10 minutes until onions are cooked and potatoes had time to cook. Then add garlic salt, pepper and 3-4 Tablespoons of vinegar. Let cook on medium low while you are preparing the toppings. Stir often. Chop all toppings, grate cheese and prepare ranch dressing. Add another 3-4 Tablespoons of vinegar to the meat. Cook for a few more minutes. To put together I take the rice and put it as your bottom layer, then meat, then put your toppings. Top it off with ranch then the cheese. There you have it a perfect, mouth watering Beef Hawaiian Haystack!
