Coney Island Sauce



This is tried and true. My mom made this often. It was sold in her old boyfriend's sandwich shop and very popular. It is even good on salads with tortilla chips (a taco salad). He sold a lot of those also.
It's a huge batch, below is a broken down version of this same recipe.

You serve the burgers with stewed onions and this sauce and the hot dogs get raw onions, mustard and this sauce.  And of course, you steam the buns.

Coney Island Sauce
15 lbs ground beef

6 handfuls chopped onions

6 T chili powder

6 T garlic salt

3 6 oz cans tomato paste

3 8 oz cans tomato sauce

2 12 oz bottles chili sauce

5 c water

9 c water (yes, this is right)

12 T beef bullion



Cook burger, onion, chili powder and garlic salt,

brown together. Mash with potato masher.

Add tomato sauce, paste, chili sauce and 5 c water.

Boil additional 9 c water in separate container,

add bullion and dissolve.

Add to burger, simmer 1½ hours and add black pepper to taste.

I think the brand I get is Heinz. Its with the ketsup and mustard at the store. I'm sure generic is fine too if your store carries it.
