Mom's Spicy Hot Dog Sauce (Crock Pot)

My mother-in-law gave me this recipe. We absolutely love it! I cook it for several hours in the crock pot, and I usually double or even triple it, because my family loves having the leftovers!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all ingredients in your crock pot.
  2. Allow to cook at least 8 hours on low (in the older Crockpots -- the newer ones sometimes seem to cook too high). I usually cook mine overnight, then even allow it to cook part of the day before turning it to warm.
  3. ***It can also be cooked on the stove, if you need it to get done sooner. In this case, you may want to leave the water out.
  4. Enjoy on hot dogs (or "saucedogs" for my daughter who doesn't like hotdogs, and only eats sauce on a bun LOL) or use as a sloppy joe filling!
  5. I'm not sure about the serving amount below.

Sweet and spicy, I didn't have time to use the crock pot and just simmered this in my cast iron pan for 2 hours or so until it was supper time. I only added about 1 cup of water since I was short on cooking time. Next time when I have more cooking time to use the crock pot, I might leave out the brown sugar since the tomato juice and ketchup have alot of sugar in it already. Made this for Spring Pick A Chef 09. Thanks for help with supper!

I had a problem with it being to thin. So I doubled the ground beef and cooked it all night and all day. It had a very good taste. Clean up on the crock pot was time consuming. Thank you.
