It’s that time again! Time for Blogger CLUE Society and boy did I completely forget about it –seriously, I thought about it about 3PM on Independence Day.
I quickly grabbed my computer and began frantically searching the lovely blog Palatable Pastime for a recipe. Since we purchased the website Yum Goggle, I run around like a chicken with my head cut off half the time with the little one chasing around behind me asking me a million questions and offering to help! Rocket’s dad had to work on the 4th so we decided to grill out Sunday instead which turned out to be a really great thing. As I was perusing the PP blog, I saw her newest post from that very day for Chili Dog Sauce – I was going to break open a box of Red Star Chili to go with our Nathan’s All-Beef skinless Hot Dogs that we would cook on charcoal out on our grill but why – when I could make this recipe for chili sauce and have my post done at the same time? Sounded good to me! So, I began digging through the pantry looking for all the ingredients – I was a little worried about having molasses but I found some so I knew I was in business.
You should go over to Palatable Pastime and check out Sue Lau’s blog along with the others who are participating in Blogger CLUE. I never thought I would enjoy digging through another blog but as the year or so that I have been participating in this group, I have learned that I do indeed enjoy it and you may as well!
*****This recipe has a sweetness to it if you eat it the day it’s made, however, if you let it sit in the fridge overnight all sweetness is completely gone – so you can have it either way!****
Let’s get on with the recipe:
Crock Pot Chili Dog Sauce
1 lb. Ground Chuck
1 ½ Cups finely chopped onion
½ Cup water
2 Tablespoons chopped garlic
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
½ teaspoon ground cumin
½ teaspoon celery seed
1 ½ teaspoons chili powder
15 oz. can of tomato sauce
2 teaspoons prepared yellow mustard
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 Tablespoon Molasses
1 teaspoon brown sugar
2 Tablespoons Ketchup
Put water and onions into a food processor and pulse until very fine
Brown meat with water and onion mixture along with all the dry seasonings.
Once the meat is browned add all that’s in skillet and all other ingredients into a slow cooker and cook 8-10 hours on low or 4 hours on high………….I cooked 4 hours on high very successfully!
Serve on hot dogs and enjoy!
We enjoyed this very much and will be making it again very soon!
