I love this hot dog sauce! This recipe was on my website a few years ago and it was so popular I decided to put the recipe in my second cookbook. These are delicious!
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped fine
1/2 cup white granulated sugar
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup chili powder
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons black pepper
1 1/2 cups water
Start by browning the ground beef together with the prepared onion. Drain.
Stir in the white granulated sugar, ketchup, chili powder, light brown sugar, salt and black pepper.
Carefully add in the water. Stir.
Bring this mixture to a boil.
As soon as the mixture comes to a boil, reduce the heat to medium low and cook for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
Taste for additional seasonings and serve hot.
