Prep 15 mins
Cook 1 hr
This is exactly like the Coney Sauce my husband grew up eating in the Flint, MI area.
- 2 lbs hamburger
- 6 ounces tomato paste
- 6 ounces water
- 2 tablespoons mustard
- 2 tablespoons chili powder
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- Do not precook hamburger.
- Combine all ingredients in 2 quart.
- Cover and cook on medium heat for 1 hour.
- Stir occasionally, blot to remove excess fat and liquid.
- Serve over cooked hot dogs.
guys....what most of these recipes miss...and it's a big one...is that the chili recipe is of Greek immigrant origin and therefore has some Mediterranean spices in that they almost never include. Mainly we're talking about cinnamon and cloves. Small amounts (especially cloves which are very strong) but they have to be in there none-the-less. Without those it's just regular ground beef chili.
Not bad, just not that much like Detroit coney chili. The authentic stuff is now available for ordering online.
We are also from Detroit and crave the occasional "coney". But they dont have them like this ANYWHERE else!!! This recipe is awesome, my entire family loves it! This as close to the real thing as you can get. I would love to freeze leftovers for future use but there arent any leftovers. I make a crock pot full and its gone in no time. We eat this on hot dogs, on a hamburger bun with cheese(remember the chi-chi burger?) or in a bowl topped with onions and cheese. THANK YOU!!!
