"This is a style of coney sauce that is found in the Greek restaurants and Coney Islands around the Detroit, Michigan area. It is very unique and different from New York coney sauce. Serve over steamed hot dogs in steamed buns with mustard and chopped raw onion if you wish.

1 1/2 teaspoons
ground black pepper
prepared yellow mustard
water, or more as needed
buttery crackers (such as Keebler Club® Crackers)
Instead of adding water and thickening with crackers, make more gravy using the same liquid and dry ingredients in the recipe (sans meat, of course), bring to a boil, thicken with a flour and water mix and add back to the cooked meat. This will look and taste like the product at places like National Coney Island, or Ted's in Port Huron. PS, leave out the Cayenne. These restaurants do not use this. If you like hot, go ahead, but this isn't used in the restaurants, at least not at this strength.
Not sure what's goin on in Port Huron, but this is definitely not what I was expecting for a Coney sauce. It was OK for what it was but I won't be making it again. Gonna keep searching for the real Detroit Coney sauce.
Thank you. Since we moved to Iowa, we have to wait for the big road trip to get a decent coney. Thanks for bringing Detroit back home to us. Go WINGS.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. My husband was born and raised in Port Huron and he always raves about the PH Coney sauce. I've never tried to make it myself so on Father's Day I decided to search and make some. Wow, for this recipe to pop up. I followed it to the T and it was PERFECT. A big hit at my party and my husband loved it. A keeper! Thanks so much. OH, and the potato masher tip. Never thought of it before. YOU ROCK!
I was out of ground mustard. Instead of a potato masher, I used a whisk to break up the meat in the water and spices. I doubled the recipe and let it cook for several hours. Everyone loved it, they not only used it on the dogs, they used it on the fries too. The recipe sounds weird, not browning the meat first, but it was so tender. This coney sauce was the best I've tasted.
Pretty good. I am here in TX and not quite accustomed to chili sauce like this one. I added a little salt and didnt do the beef base. Turned out really delicious. And GO WINGS!
I do not eat red meat, but I made this for my daughter's first birhday party (the theme was Coney's and Cake). The sauce didn't turn out as "saucy" as I see it in restaurants, but everyone liked it. In fact, the pot was scraped clean!
We really liked this...Coney sauces are all different anyways so this one isn't my ultimate favorite but it's pretty addicting. Tastes kinda like Skyline chili. I didn't have beef base so I added beef stock instead of the water. I also was out of onion powder so I added minced onion-I actually spilled it in there & was going to fish it out but decided it would just rehydrate & be fine & it was. I also added a bit of celery seed. Yum. Would give this 4.5 stars if I could
