I was having company one day and looking for just the right sauce for hot dogs. I called Grandma, who shared this wonderful recipe.—Melissa Norris, Churubusco, Indiana

Ingredients

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, bring water to a boil. Carefully crumble beef into water. Add onion. Boil until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add the tomato sauce, brown sugar, chili powder, salt and pepper. Simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes or until heated through. Serve over hot dogs in buns.
