Today I’d like to talk about classic New York hot dog, where we have a special onion sauce except a roll and sausage. It is sweet and juicy and it cooks almost as onion confiture, but with some exceptions.

A hot dog:

  • 4 sausages
  • 4 rolls
  • 4 tbsp sauerkraut
  • ketchup for serving
  • mustard for serving


  • In the glass or deep bowl mix 120 ml of water, 1 tsp of corn starch, 1 tbsp of tomato paste (can be replaced with good-quality ketchup), 1 tsp of sweet mustard (or medium hot), 1 tsp of sugar, 1 tbsp of balsamic vinegar (if you don’t have one – use apple or any wine), a few drops of Tabasco and a pinch of ground cinnamon. Finely mix everything.
  • Slice 2 onions into thin half-rings.
  • Finely chop 2 cloves of garlic.
  • Warm up the large frying pan on the medium fire, add 1 tbsp of vegetable oil, and lay the onion out into one layer. Add salt on top. Fry, stirring all the time until the onion is mild and fried on the edges. Then add garlic and fry for another minute, also constantly stirring.
  • Add prepared liquid mix, finely mix everything, cover, lower the fire, and leave stewing For 1 hour. Check from time to time if there is some liquid left in the frying pan.
  • Using a grill pan or electric grill fry 4 sausages for 1-2 minutes from both sides.
  • 4 rolls cut in half lengthwise, but don’t slice till the end. Fry them on the same pan/grill.
  • Put the sausage into the roll, spread 1-2 tbsp of onion sauce evenly on top. If you want a real authentic New York hot dog, add for about 1 tbsp of sauerkraut.
  • Serve with sweet mustard and ketchup.
