New York System Wieners

Growing up in Rhode Island, this is the only "hot dog" we ever ate.  It's really nothing like a typical hot dog.  The wiener has a natural casing on it and comes in a long string like sausage.  This particular wiener is obviously not available here in the Midwest so I used a regular wiener.  The sauce is cooked for hours and the wiener must be assembled in the correct order to make it authentic "all the way".  The bun must be steamed as well.  I love recipes like this that bring me back a few years.

    What do you think of cooking it off in the crock pot instead of stovetop????

      After browning the meat and onion and draining it, that would absolutely work well!

    I think I am going to try this one, I make my own wieners with fresh meats, lambcasings and smoke them hot before they are used in the kitchen or on the grill. I will give you an update :))
