Hot Dog Sauce

About 15 years ago or more, my sister Judy sent me a recipe box filled with recipes that our family had been using since she was a kid (and she's 11 years older than I am) and a few that were a little more "recent." This is the hot dog sauce that made it to every party ever held by anyone in my family as well as many of our friends.


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 quart water
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Onion powder
  • Garlic powder
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Chili powder


  1. Brown ground beef, but DO NOT DRAIN.
  2. Add water, then season to taste with remaining ingredients.
  3. Cook 30 minutes and adjust seasonings as needed.

* Cumin would be a zippy little addition to this recipe.
