Chicago Style Hot Dogs (Vienna Beef)

Total Time
Prep 30 mins

I grew up in Chicago on these hot dogs, we had a little storefront on our corner that served these great (Red Hots) dogs. Now in California I had to have them so I finally found out where to purchase these Beef Dogs online at, along with the other ingredients I needed, and ordered all the stuff for that authentic taste of the windy city.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat vienna beef hot dog in water, steam, grill or microwave to 170 degrees Fahreneheit (better tasting steamed).
  2. Place the Hot Dog in a steamed poppyseed bun.
  3. Then pile on the toppings in the order listed in the ingredients; mustard, green relish, onion, tomatoes, pickle, bell peppers, celery salt.

So good. I used fresh jalapenos, cause that's all I had pepper-wise. I don't think I can have a plain hot dog ever again. Thank you!

I had given up eating hot dogs until I had one of these babies. The sweet and savory is irresistible.
