After countless searches for a good Coney Island sauce, I stumbled on this one at another cooking website. Most recipes I had tried were just too sweet, this is a good Midwest-style Coney sauce. I didn't follow the measurements to the letter - just eyeballed it; and I added a couple dashes of hot sauce to kick up the heat a bit.
- 1 lb ground chuck
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
- 1 cup water
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 tablespoon prepared yellow mustard
- 1 tablespoon dried onion flakes
- 2 teaspoons chili powder
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon celery seed
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cumin (heaping)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground black pepper

- Brown ground beef in a skillet, adding onions halfway through. Add minced garlic when meat is nearly done.
- Add remaining ingredients; stir well to combine. Simmer over low heat 15 minutes.
- Serve over hot dogs, Coney Island style! Top with shredded sharp cheddar if desired.
