"This is great on grilled hot dogs. The original recipe hails from Coney Island, NY where hot dogs by the beach are served with a similar sauce topping." — Kim

hot pepper sauce
The taste is great. I have found that a food processor is a quick way to get the texture that you want. Otherwise, use your fingers to finely crumble the browned meat. Jeanie Bean
There wasn't enough liquid to simmer this for 40 minutes. I added 2 chopped garlic cloves and 1 cup of beer.
This is almost what I was looking for...but the one I remember had chopped sweet pickles in it also.
Adjust liquids as follows to improve as others mentioned. Onions are never in the sauce. You steam them and put on top!! You can also steam or even grill the bun. My own recipe, like Johnny & Hons in Reading, PA, is same except for amounts the following: 3 Tbsp Plochman's mustard & 3 Tbsp Vinegar 1/2 cup Heinz ketchup 1 Tbsp sugar 2 Tbsp H20 1 1/2 tsp. worchestershire suace 1/2 tsp. tabasco 1/2 tsp. celetery seed.
EVERYONE WHO HAD THIS RECIPE REALLY LIKED IT, AS DID I . tHE ONLY CHANGE I MIGHT MAKE IS TO CUT BACK ON SUGAR A LITTLE, BETWEEN THE KETCHUP AND SUGAR ITS REALLY SWEET. ALSO I HIGLY RECOMMEND PUTTING THE MEAT AND ONION THROUGH FOOD PROCESSOR IF YOU WANT THE BEST TEXTURE, OTHERWISE TOO CHUNKY.
I served this at my son's birthday party so that the adults could eat a more sophisticated hot dog. It went over very well! Great taste. Next time, I think I will try to process the beef so that it is not so chunky; I think someone suggested that they spun it in the blender after browning and draining it. I made it the day before - I followed the recipe up to the point of simmering it. I then refrigerated it and put it in a small crockpot for a couple of hours the next day to do the simmering work with good results.
This was close, but not exactly how I remembered it. I will continue my quest.
Reminds me of the Dog's N Suds coney sauce. I'm used to a Texas chili on my dogs, but this stuff is great! It's very different in that it is a sweet-tangy chili. I'll definitely keep this recipe.
