Coney Island Hot Dogs
Enjoy the famous Coney Island hot dogs at home with Chef John's recipe for the Detroit favorite.
Ground beef is simmered in a tangy sauce with onion. My Grandfather owned a drive-in restaurant back in the 1950's. This is his exact recipe for Coney Dogs from back in the day. I make this on special occasions and it is always hit with friends and family. Enjoy.
Coney Island hot dog chili sauce is quick and easy to prepare and hearty topper for hot dogs.
A quick and easy sauce for hamburgers or hot dogs made from ground beef and onion spiced with paprika and chile powder.
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 this. I grew up in Detroit and the chili at the Coney Island was smoother and gravy-like. I even used an immersion blender to do something to it. I really wanted this to be a winner but it's not fair to compare it to a Detroit Coney dog.
This is just what I've been looking for! It's delicious with just the right balance of flavors. And as an added bonus, not only have I used it on Coney Island Dogs, but I've had it by itself on a hamburger bun as a nice alternative to a Sloppy Joe, and on a salad with corn, cheese, beans, and whatever else my imagination comes up with. This is a wonderful and versatile recipe. I'll be making it a lot. Thanks Chef John! It makes one of the best hot dogs I've ever tasted.
So easy, perfect texture. I used only 1tbs of chili powder and it was great! Tastes like the chili my mom made from my childhood.
Love this recipe! I made it for a church cook-off and won first place!
