hot dogs... specifically "special" sauce?!?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Trying to find a recipe for the special sauce that went on hot dogs at "John's Doggies".  John's had a shop in Chester, PA... might still be there but it's BEYOND dangerous to even think about going into that area any more.  Also has a place in Chichester.  IMO, ONLY way to get one of his dogs is "with the works"... lots of raw onions and his "secret" sauce.

 

It's not a chili, but has meat in it.  Not a tomato base, very fine meat, lots of onions and garlic.  Anyone have a recipe for something like this?  It's NOT a chili dog.

McD special sauce started as a russian style dressing by the guy who thru Big Mac together. They have changed it slightly (less catsup) more artificial ingredients corn syrup etc. You can analyize the sauce and figure it easy if you give it some thought. The famous onions used on NY pushcart are simply sweated onions s&p , paprika a drop of tomato puree and bit of water.

It's a classic Greek style chili/meat sauce like they use on 'coneys' in Michigan.  They use beef heart, which is what gives it its unique flavor.  You can buy the condensed sauce in commercial sized packaging, ready to reconstitute with water. 

 

Ingredients from package label:  beef hearts, beef suet, wheat flour (details), spices, salt, paprika, sugar, maltodextrin, onion powder, garlic powder, spice extractives.

 

I've never seen a copy-cat recipe that even comes close.  They use everything from ground chuck to ground up hotdogs, and almost always include tomato products.
