Reviews forConey Island Sauce
"This is one of the best coney sauces I've ever tried! My whole family loved this recipe! I omitted the celery. Instead I topped the coney sauce with shredded sharp cheese and ladled it over hot dogs."
"As delicious as what the root beer stands has to offer. I did make a some changes in the recipe and was surprisingly good. One change I made was due to not having any lemon juice so I substituted white vinegar instead. The other change was actually a mistake and it was when I doubled the recipe and I doubled the 15 oz can of tomato sauce instead of the doubling the recipe's amount of an 8 oz can. Fortunately, the sauce cooked down to a nice consistency and thickened after being refrigerated. Will be making this again in the future and with my serendipitous mistake."
"Very good! Made a quadruple batch for a meeting.....one batch doesn't make much at all!"
"I thought this tasted really good on my hot dog. I will keep this recipe and make it again."
"I made this for a baked potato buffet fundraiser, they licked the pot clean and asked for more! Just enough spice to keep everyone happy."
"I wondered about the celery, but this was the best hot dog chili I've eaten."
