Coney Island Hot Dog Sauce

9 posts in this topic

I dug this out cuz we are making a batch this weekend, and thought I would post it here . Not quite as good as the stuff at some small Coney Dog Stands, but the best home recipe I have come across so far.

2 # Hamburger

2 Cups Tomato Juice

3 Teas Salt

1 Med Onion diced

1 Teas Minced Garlic

2 Whole Cloves put in a cheese cloth bag and remove after cooking.

1 Heaping Tablespoon Cumin

3 Heaping Tablespoons Chili Powder

Brown Hamburger and then mix in the rest of the ingredients and simmer for at least 2 hours.

Nice! Very similar to mine plus I add a diced up red and green pepper. Plus crushed red pepper till I get some heat...

I'm with dark cloud, gotta throw in some pepper.

Coney Island dogs are not the same as coney dogs. Coney dogs are an Ohio/Michigan phenomenon - basically beanless chili on hotdogs. Coney Island dogs are either red hots or a spicey white hot dogs not topped with chili.

About an hour south of where I live, in Scranton PA they call em weiners. Lots of places around there sell them along with weiner sauce and special short buns to match the short dog or weiner. Basically a bean-less chili type sauce. Go great with some chopped onions and shredded cheese. grin

Gotta remember this is from up here in Minnesota. I am sure there are some real differences even tho the name is the same.

We do pour on the diced raw onions to top it off, cheese is not so usual. And it is similar to chili without beans, but different none the less.

I can see adding the red pepper to give it some heat if that is what you are used to, we are probably used to it being a bit more tame.

I may have to single out some of the batch and through some crushed red pepper in to kick it up a bit and see how it turns out.

Similar but diff, I like that...

They are usually our friday evening snack at camp. A big fish fry with beans and homrfrys followed a few hours later with spicy dogs. Washed down with a few beverages. And tums for desert!

Can't forget a squirt of mustard across the onions.

    • Was doing some work in the woods today and found these. Of course I stopped and spent two hours looking for more, but this was it. Oh well, will probably be the earliest I've ever gotten to eat them.  
    •   I would definitely get the one with the Pheasant plowing attachment! Beats walking the fields!
    • Never getting rid of my Suburban. Just looking for a new toy for hunting etc. that I can drive down narrow dirt roads up north. Another reason why I would rather buy a slightly used one so I can use it without worrying about putting a few scratches on it. Those side by sides look like fun but you have to haul them around and cant drive them everywhere. And they just aren't built to take what a Jeep can. Always kind of liked the looks of Jeeps and being able to remove the top in the summer is nice to. Would definitely want a hard top to as the soft tops aren't to good for MN winters. I'm sure the newer ones have better heaters than the older ones as I remember back in the day guys were dressed like they were snowmobiling while driving their Jeep. And scraping frost off of the window to see.
    • I went through the same thing. I had ATV's at first then bought an RZR. It was fun but honestly the quality for the price is pretty bad. You can go up to a Can Am but then the price is even worse. So a few years after I sold the RZR I got the itch again but then started looking at the Wranglers and ended up doing that. I bought a 2006 with the 4.0 and after that and buying a used 6.6' plow I was into it for less than 13.5k and can drive it everywhere.   I have the hardtop on mine. I just take it off in the summer and drive it when it's nice. IMHO it's the way to go but you need to watch out for ones that are rusted out. I take the doors off, the top off and drive around sniping gophers, head to the lake or just cruise around. I like the 32" BFG KO tires.     
    •   What's a big guy like you going to do with a little SUV?  Your still keeping the truck to pull that new trailer right?
    • Good luck, have fun and stay topside this time of year.
    • Did you have to sand in between coats of lacquer? I was going to use a pre catalyzed lacquer for a little more durability, but it seems like it would take forever to get in all of the grooves. 
    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
