Heavenly Hot Dog Sauce

"This is my family's favorite hotdog sauce. It originates from West Virginia. We like it with a bite, but you can adjust it to your taste. We top the hotdogs with ketchup, mustard, the hotdog sauce, and finally some chopped onions...YUM! This recipe makes enough for freezing and using later."


2 1/2 pounds lean ground beef

1 cup water

1/2 cup tomato sauce

1/3 cup ketchup

1/2 tablespoon salt

1/2 tablespoon pepper

1 tablespoon white sugar

1 tablespoon chili powder

crushed red pepper flakes to taste



Crumble ground beef into a Dutch oven over medium heat. Stir in water, and mash ground beef thoroughly with a potato masher. Stir in tomato sauce, ketchup, salt, pepper, sugar, and chili powder; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer, 60 to 90 minutes, until the sauce reaches a medium consistency that is not too soupy.
