Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 6 all-beef hot dogs
  • 6 hot dog buns
  • Spicy brown mustard, for serving
  • Quick Kraut

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Heat oil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. When oil shimmers, add onions and salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft and golden brown in places, 8-10 minutes. Add garlic and continue cooking, 1 minute more. Stir in tomato paste, red wine vinegar, hot sauce, sugar, and 1/2 cup water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until onion relish is thick and glossy.

  2. Step 2

    Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a deep-sided skillet. Add hot dogs, reduce heat, keeping water at a bare simmer, and heat through at least 10 minutes, or until ready to serve.

  3. Step 3

    Line a steamer basket with three layers of cheesecloth and place inside a pot with 1/2 inch of boiling water. Place hot dog buns on cheesecloth, cover pot, and steam buns, 2 minutes.

  4. Step 4

    Assemble: Place hot dogs inside buns, top with onion relish, spicy brown mustard, and sauerkraut and serve immediately.

    All I can say is WOW! I've never been to NY so I have nothing to compare to, but that onion relish is awesome!! I'll be making this whenever hot dogs are on the menu.
