Traditional Coney Dog Sauce

A traditional beef coney dog sauce made in the crockpot or on the stove.


  • 1 pound hamburger I use a leaner hamburger for this, less fat to skim off as it cooks
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1 Tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 1/4-1/2 cup dried onions
  • 1 cup water
  • 6-8 dashes Red Hot or Tabasco optional
  • 1-2 Tablespoons chili powder


  • Place the pound of ground beef (yes raw) into the bottom of your crock pot and kind of smash and separate into chunks.
  • Combine the rest of the ingredients in a mixing bowl and whisk to combine then pour over the raw hamburger in the crockpot.
  • Turn the crockpot onto low, cover and allow to cook for 4-5 hours.
  • Stir the meat mixture every now and then, skimming off any fat that may be settled on top.
  • When done and ready to serve you can add your hotdogs to the picture to cook them or serve them cooked on the side!
  • This recipe is really super good the next day and re-warmed so it's a great recipe to make ahead.


You can make this on the stove top as well. You will just want to cook it on low heat and stir more often. 
Same steps as above - you will want to add the liquid mixture to the pan with raw hamburger.
