Tomato paste, water and wine... I knew the sauce was very simple.
Thanks. I'll be making this tonight. You can't have enough uses for hot dogs, lol.

You are welcome. Just let me know what you think.

This makes abount 4 - 5 servings so you can half the recipe or freeze half for later. If you half it you can take the other dogs and split them half way through longways (not all the way), stuff with cheese and completely wrap with bacon to the seal the cheese in and grill or fry them. :pig:

Thank you Tim.

My mom and grandma made this with bologna sliced into strips and fried. I like it with hot dogs but it is basically the same flavor. You can sub bologna if you like.

I have a package of beef stew meat in the freezer that I'm going to try this with. I'll brown the meat first in the butter and then follow your recipe. I think it'll turn out well!

You will have to simmer that stew beef in broth and wine first till tender and maybe shred it before adding the tomato and use the simmering broth (instead of the water) and wine. Otherwise the meat will be tough. I have done this for a nice meat sauce (with bottom round instead ofr ground beef or stew meat) but I add fresh garlic also.

I buy bottom round when on sale and cube for stew, soup, kabobs etc. I used to use stew beef but found for the price I was getting a lot of fat, grizzle and the other tough parts of the beef.

Funny you should mention bologna.
I love ring bologna sandwiches; fried or cold, mustard or mayo... just love the stuff. And just the other day, as I was looking at those hot dogs in my fridge, I was tempted to slice one up on white bread with mayo, but I just couldn't bring myself to eat a hot dog with mayo :wacko: And really, especially since I buy Smiths for both, they are probably the exact same meat mixture.

Anyway, I just got back from picking up my burgundy :wink:

Burgundy is my red cooking wine of choice. I use it in just about everything. I buy burgundy by the gallon. :blink::ohmy::lol:
