First of all, I have been sick the last couple of weeks with one Hell of a cold and just have not had the ambition or the inkling to cook or post anything……
I am feeling much better, but still not 100 %
Here is what I made for dinner last night, if you have never had these you don’t know what you’re missing.
NOT CHILI DOGS!!!!! Coney Island Dogs!!!!
It has taken me a very long time to get this recipe to the point of perfection but I believe it is there, and so does the rest of my family.
The first things you will need:
1 tablespoon of butter
1 tablespoon of margarine
1 ½ pounds of ground round
In a saucepan cook the beef, butter and margarine…breaking it up with a fork so it’s in nice and small pieces (or if you have a meat grinder that works perfect, that’s what I use) cook until it is no longer pink. I then drain the excess grease but it is not necessary.
Next you will need to add all these Ingredients to your cooked beef:
2 tablespoons – minced onions
3 tablespoons – chili powder
3 tablespoons – prepared mustard
1 teaspoon – garlic powder
½ teaspoon – salt
½ teaspoon – pepper
1 – 6 oz can of tomato paste
1 – 6 oz can of water
Note: I always make a double batch because it just goes way to fast at my house!
Stir, Stir, Stir! Let simmer until thick.
While your pot is simmering, you need:
6 – KOEGEL’S VIENNA HOT DOGS (no other brand is quite the same here so please do not skimp buy the best! KOEGEL’S! Although I do use the skinless frankfurters for this part because they grind up easier being skinless, they are still Koegel brand and still the best in my opinion. I do use the Vienna hot dogs for the final product.) Grind them up and then add them to your beef mixture in the pot and stir it all up together. Let simmer for another 20 to 30 minutes please…..
To get the true experience prepare your hot dogs as follows: Bun, dog, coney sauce, mustard on top of coney sauce and then sprinkle a few onions on top. Enjoy!!! Note : I always buy Koegel’s brand hot dogs!
