1 lb. lean ground beef
1 medium onion chopped
2 tsp. garlic powder
1 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
2 Tbsp. chili powder
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. allspice
2 dashes Worcestershire sauce
6 oz. tomato paste
3 cups water
Brown the ground beef and drain. Run it through a food processor for a finer texture. Mince the onions in the food processor as well. In a medium heavy pot, combine all ingredients and simmer until thickened, 45 minutes to l hour.
Some don't like the taste of the cinnamon in this, so simple omit it. It's the taste that I remember.
Place hot dog on a warm toasted bun. Spread about a heaping Tablespoon of sauce. Add yellow mustard and chopped onion.
I have to admit, a hot dog every now and then truly is one of my guilty pleasures! Glad you created a sauce that takes you back:@)ReplyDelete
YUM!!! Makes me want to fire up some dogs!ReplyDelete
I am going to have to try this soon. All the ones in the store have a funny taste.ReplyDelete
Would someone be kind enough to send me the recipe for Coney Island Hot Dog Sauce fromReplyDelete
October 12, 2012 please. The recipe will not come up.
I made the recipe exactly as written; after 1 hr. of simmering, it was really soupyReplyDelete
That seems unusual to me! I've been making this for quite a while! Maybe you simmered it too low?Delete
When I read recipe, I thought 3 cups of water was a lot. I'll start with 2 and go from thereDelete
You didn't mistakenly use tomato sauce did you?Delete
