The "real deal" Chicago dog uses a Vienna Beef frank, STEAMED not boiled, a steamed poppy seed bun, neon green relish, and whole sport peppers. I gave four stars because of the advice to boil the franks. The Vienna Beef franks have a natural casing that has just the right amount of "snap" to it when you bite in! The buns need to be steamed so that they are just almost mushy and soft. Plenty of mustard on TOP of the frank, not on the bun, a spear of pickle, and plenty of onions and relish make this dog incredible. Finally, slices of tomatoes are a requirement. Don't mess around with perfection - the good people of Chicago figured out the perfect dog!
