This recipe is supposed to be a copycat for the sauce served on Sabrett’s hog dogs, one of the more popular street hot dogs in New York.
1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
1 medium onion, sliced thin and chopped
4 cups water
2 tablespoons tomato paste
2 teaspoons corn syrup
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 cup vinegar
- Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat.
- Sauté the onion in the oil for 5 minutes, or until the onions are soft, but not brown.
- Add the water, tomato paste, corn syrup, cornstarch, salt, and red pepper flakes, and stir together.
- Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 45 minutes.
- Add the vinegar and continue simmering for an additiona1 30-45 minutes, or until most of the liquid is reduced and the sauce is thickened.*
- Makes about 1 cup.
*I personally have had to let this simmer much, much longer than the recipe.
