I felt Sauce was a tad too much chili powder. A famous Michigan Coney restaurant uses these proportions of condiments: 1 lb. hamburgh 80/20 fat ratio. small onion chopped 2 tsp. chilipowder(kind that has cumin in it already) 1 tsp. cumin 2 tsp. Hungarian sweet Paprika 1/4 tsp black pepper 1/2 tsp salt 1 tsp. white sugar. The mixture is prepared as Joanie suggests. In addition once the meat is browned one should "pulse" the meat in a food processor for about 2-3 seconds to break up the "strands" of meat. The white buns should be 7 in. in length and slightly steamed and the Koegel brand Vienna hotdog is just heated and then topped with the sauce and finally generously topped with chopped sweet onion bits.

Be very cautious in trying this recipe for children! My husband and I thought it was okay but I wondered if I had done something wrong with the spices! (Should the measurements be teaspoons?) It was awfully hot even after I added a small amount of sugar some ketchup and removed some of the spice. Kids ate plain hotdogs and husband did not request a repeat. I was disappointed it looked good. Read More

Fantastic sauce. I did not change a thing. It turned out wonderful. Super easy to make. My 10 year old son fell in love with it. He said "It's much better than the canned kind we usually use" And he loves the canned type. Thank you so much. Read More
