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.

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 Read More

There wasn't enough liquid to simmer this for 40 minutes. I added 2 chopped garlic cloves and 1 cup of beer. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More
