Hotdog recipe, coney island chili dog recipe

Here is a very close replica to the famous “Coney Island” chili dog from Michigan. I really enjoyed this dog, and hope you give it a try. I also hoped you have enjoyed my hot dog series, and I will be posting more hot dogs to this playlist in time, but this will be the last one for now. I have other projects I need to get started on. Enjoy 🙂

I have had a few people ask me about the onion chopper I’m using in this video. You can order it from by following this link:

Onions 1 , finely chopped
96% lean ground beef 1 Pound
Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm), chopped
Oil 1 Tablespoon
Chili powder 2 Tablespoon
Cumin powder 1 Tablespoon
Water 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Canned tomato paste 6 Ounce (1 Can)
Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
Prepared yellow mustard 1 Tablespoon
Worcestershire sauce 1 Tablespoon
Brown sugar 2 Teaspoon

Frankfurter sausages 6
Hot dog buns 6
Mustard sauce 6 Tablespoon
Chopped onion 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)

For Chili
1. Heat oil in a pan and stir in ground beef. Add half of the chopped onions, chopped garlic and let it cook.
2. When the meat changes color and starts to release water, add chili powder and cumin powder. Mix and cook for 3 more minutes.
3. Pour in water and tomato paste, blend it well. Season with salt.
4.Thereafter mix in prepared yellow mustard, worcestershire sauce and brown sugar. Let it simmer for 5 minutes or until of desired thickness. Keep the chili aside.
For buns and frankfurters
5. Steam the frankfurters for 4 minutes. In the same steamer, place the hot dog buns and steam for a couple of minutes.

6. Place a frankfurter in the middle of the bun, cover the sausage with chill. Drizzle some mustard sauce over the top and garnish with chopped onions. Repeat with the rest of the buns and enjoy.

  1. I was with a chili completion and anyone who used brown sugar their chili tasted of nothing but malt I wanted to throw it out from just tasting all the sugar. The best chili recipe I ever had was 1 can red kidney beans, 1 pound beef, 1/2 cup each of onions, peppers and mushrooms all lightly browned in a skillet, 1 tea spoon each of cumin, oregano and chili powder, 1 large can of crushed tomato's, 1 table spoon of worstishere sauce, 8 ounce (1 cup) BBQ sauce (I used hickory it wasn't bad but the recipe wasn't specific) cook the beef then add your mushrooms, peppers, onions, crushed tomato's, worseishire sauce and BBQ sauce mix and simmer for half an hour then add your other spices oregano, cumin, chili powder and the red kidney beans mix Then simmer for a full hour stirring every 10 mins or so. After that you put your hot dogs in the chili and just let it simmer for another 15 mins then throw it on a bun toasted or not (recipe said toasted) the shred some old cheddar on there if you want and serve. I wasn't sure about it because half way through I tasted it and it was bad but you have to let it finish and get all the water out its great. The cooked tomato gives off a sweet taste as do the onions, the BBQ sauce adds smokey flavor, the worstishire sauce adds a tiny bit of vinager, peppers add your spicy, you don't even detect the mushrooms I hate mushrooms anyway. And of course you know what hot dogs and cheese fast like. Its a good one you should try it the original recipe didn't give much instruction but my friend gave it to me he said its from An old comic book for kids sonic the hedgehog chilidogs. I've seen some other YouTube's making it so check it out.

  2. Looks like a great recipe. But please be a little more accurate with your measurements. When you put the salt in you said about a half teaspoon but you put WAY more than that in. Same thing with the brown sugar. You said a couple teaspoons but put WAY more than that in. Result looks great though and I may give it a try soon. LOVE a good hot dog and around here, it is not a hot dog unless it has chili!! 🙂

  3. What are really good hot dog saucages available in the Netherlands ? Just because I can't find anything in the super market that looks, feels, and tastes like a hotdog I ate in Canada once.

  4. I know this one is old, but don't you make your own chili powder? Mexene is so awful.

    I always like your videos, but the sugar and stuff in the chili reminds me too much of living in the northeast. (shudder) Grinders and real gyros are awesome, but I could do without being so damned crowded up there.
