PREPARATION: 45 minutes – makes servings for 16 to 20 hot dogs

EQUIPMENT: Large skillet with a lid, measuring cups, and spoons.


  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 onion chopped.
  • 4 cloves garlic minced.
  • 4 tablespoons tomato paste (¼ cup)
  • 1 pound ground beef to 1½ pounds if not using ground pork.
  • ½ pound ground pork (optional)
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • ¼ cup tomato sauce (4 tablespoons)
  • ¼ cup ketchup (4 tablespoons)
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 2 teaspoonschili powder
  • 1dash Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste


In the large skillet sauté onions and garlic in unsalted butter over medium heat 275ᵒF until slightly brown. About 5 to 7 minutes. Stir occasionally.

Add the tomato paste and combine with onions and garlic. Continue to cook until the tomato paste turns Indian red in color. Cook for about 5 to 7 minutes. Stir occasionally to prevent the fond that forms on the bottom of the pan from burning.

Add ground beef and pork and break it up with a wooden spoon. Cover with the vent closed. This will cook and steam the meat creating the beginning of the sauce. About 5 to 7 minutes. Remove the cover three or four times to stir and combine.

Add the beef broth, tomato sauce, ketchup, cumin, chili powder, and Worcestershire sauce. Stir to combine. Reduce to medium-low heat 175ᵒF to 200ᵒF. Simmer with the lid on and vent closed, for about 30 minutes.
