Drive-In Coney Dog
Time: 45 minutes
Yield: 14 servings
From the recipes of Greek immigrants to diner tables the world over, the Drive-In Coney Dog has had a long and storied history... the next chapter of which takes place in your kitchen. The hot dog is as juicy and beefy as ever, slathered in a deeply savory and meaty sauce, almost chili-like in its thickness and flavor. Drive-In Coney Dog is a quick way to shake up your barbeque or cookout, adding a delicious way to beef up (see what we did there) your dinner. Don't forget the cheese for topping!
In a saucepan, sauté the ground chuck and onions over medium heat until the meat is browned, about 6-8 minutes.
Add the chili powder, red pepper flakes, yellow mustard, cumin, tomato sauce, salt, and pepper.
Reduce the heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the sauce thickens, about 30-40 minutes.
Place the cooked hot dogs in the buns.
Carefully ladle the sauce over the hot dogs in the buns.
Sprinkle the meat sauce with the additional onions and cheese.
