Chili Dogs with a Chili Sauce

Serving Size: 16

I love making chili and I love chili dogs. However, when I add my normal chili recipe to a hot dog I get good results, not fantastic results. So a few days ago I went on a search for a real chili dog chili sauce recipe. I found a recipe that really intrigued me. There were no beans and the meat entirely came from finely shredded flank steak. After I saw that I knew I had to make this chili. This type of chili is referred to as a "chili sauce" and is a fantastic topping for hotdogs.

  • 1 Pound flank steak
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 0.25 tsp ground clove
  • 1.5 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 Tbsp Frank's Hot Sauce (or any similar hot sauce)
  • 2 Tbsp yellow mustard
  • 0.5 cup chili sauce (like Heinz)
  • 0.5 cup ketchup
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2.5 large celery stalks
  • 1 medium onion
