Home Beef Coney Dogs

Coney Dogs

by Laura

Today’s recipe is a change from the regular old hot dogs.  It’s kind of like a hot dog and a sloppy joe rolled into one yummy combo.  I found this recipe in my recent issue of Simple and Delicious.  The original recipe said to cook it in a slow cooker for 4-5 hours and I think that was way too long.  The hot dogs got over cooked.  I have changed the recipe to 2-3 hours or you could always just cook it on the stove top.  You just want everything to get heated and allow the meat mixture to cook down slightly.  You could also omit the hot dogs and use the mixture for sloppy joes too.

Coney Dogs

  • 1 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon dried minced onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • Dash cayenne pepper
  • 8 hot dogs
  • 8 hot dog buns, split
  • Shredded cheddar cheese, relish and chopped onion, optional toppings
  1. In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the tomato sauce, water, Worcestershire sauce, onion and spices.
  2. Place hot dogs in a 3-qt. slow cooker; top with beef mixture. Cover and cook on low for 2-3 hours or until heated through. Serve on buns with cheese, relish and onion if desired. Yield: 8 servings.

You’re recipe has caused me to cook using raw meat for the first time in my 32 years. I never cook so this is going to be a huge surprise for my husband. They are currently in my slow cooker and smell soo good. Thank you.

I’ve been craving chili cheese dogs. I love the addition of Worcestershire sauce.

I love these things but have never made them at home. They’re the only reason I ever go to Sonic any more. Thanks for the recipe–sounds easy!
