Coney Island Hot Dogs

Rated as 4.6 out of 5 Stars
56k

"The story of how the Coney Island hog dog got to the Midwest is pretty straightforward, but no one really knows exactly how the wiener first came to be topped with what is basically a hot meat relish. I have no idea how authentic this is, and have never been to Detroit, or even Flint. I have had Nathan's® version, which I enjoyed, but the word on the street is that it's not nearly as good as the relatives it spawned."

Directions

  1. Combine ground beef, water, 1/2 cup diced onion, ketchup, butter, garlic, chili powder, salt, black pepper, cumin, celery salt, and cayenne pepper together in a pot. Mix with a potato masher or spatula over medium-high heat until mixture has a finely ground consistency and begins to bubble, about 10 minutes.
  2. Bring beef mixture to a simmer, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook, stirring occasionally, until sauce thickens and reduces, about 1 hour. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook hot dogs in boiling water until heated through, 5 to 7 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Arrange hot dog buns on a baking sheet.
  5. Cook buns in the preheated oven until soft and warm, 2 to 3 minutes.
  6. Place 1 bun on a plate. Place a hot dog in the bun and top with meat sauce. Drizzle yellow mustard and diced onion over the meat sauce. Repeat with remaining hot dogs.

It sort of had the flavor but not the texture. It seemed to be all meat crumbles and none of the superb chili gravy. The chili gravy dripping over the sides is a distinct memory. I couldn't eat ...

Michigan conies are made with Kogels, it's kind of an unwritten law. I doubled the meat, cut the salt to 1 tsp, added 1 tbsp lard, 1 tsp turmeric, 1 tsp ground mustard, upped the cayenne pepper...

Really easy to make that's what I like. Sometimes I just don't have the time. Tastes great and doesn't make the bun soggy and fall apart. I drizzled some liquid cheese on top

My Son loved this version of coney dog !! He walloped everything clean and that was the best form of compliment ever. He even requested for one more round the following weekend but I will make a...

This is great and easy. So much better than canned chili as well. I don't think I'll use anything but this again for my hotdogs. Good with cheese, mustard and onions on top. I followed the d...

Pretty good and tangy. I preferred to add Mustard into the mix to give it that extra tang and time to settle into it, rather than just adding it after the fact.
