Coney Island Hot Dog Sauce # 2

Hot dogs covered with a tangy meat sauce were originally sold by food vendors at New York's famous Coney Island Amusement Park. Here's a recipe for this tasty hot dog topping.

1/2 pound ground beef

1/4 cup chopped onion

2 tablespoons chopped celery

1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 tablespoon lemon juice

2-1/4 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

3/4 teaspoon chili powder

1/2 teaspoon prepared mustard

1/4 teaspoon salt

8 hot dogs

8 hot dog buns, split

In a large skillet, cook the beef, onion and celery over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the tomato sauce, brown sugar, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, mustard and salt.

Bring to boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes or until sauce is thickened, stirring occasionally.

Grill or cook hot dogs according to package directions. Place hot dogs in buns; top with sauce.

Yield: 8 servings with sauce.
