How to Make It:
Growing up, I always thought making chili and slaw for Southern Style Chili Slaw Dogs was hard but in reality, it’s a fairly easy dish to whip up that’s totally impressive an screams summer! To start, I added my kosher ground beef and 1/2 of my diced onions to a pan and cooked them until there was no pink left in my meat and my onions were transparent.
Once my meat mixture was cooked, I added in my tomato sauce, Hunt’s ketchup, seasonings and Worcestershire Sauce.
After mixing all the ingredients together, I turned my burner down to low and allowed my chili to simmer for about twenty minutes, until it had thickened up to the consistency I wanted. With my chili cooking to perfection and not needing any more attention besides an occasional stir, I moved on to my slaw. Now, here in the South, we like our slaw tangy and for me, getting it just right only requires only requires a few simple ingredients. To start, I added my cabbage and 1/4 cup of my diced onions to a bowl. Next, I added in my cilantro, mayonnaise, vinegar and Gluden’s Mustard.
Now, I know that adding mustard to slaw is not exactly traditional but the spiciness of the mustard is the perfect compliment to the sweetness of the chili in creating these Southern Style Chili Slaw Dogs! After mixing all my ingredients together, my slaw was complete and all that was left to do was grill up my Hebrew National Hot Dogs and put my dish together!
I quickly had the hubs fire up the grill and toss the Hebrew National Hot Dogs on, cooking them until they had beautiful grill marks on them and were ready to eat.
As soon as I took the Hebrew National Hot Dogs off the grill, I was ready to start assembling my Southern Style Chili Slaw Dogs! To start, I quickly sliced open my hot dog buns and placed my cooked hot dogs inside.
With the quality taste of kosher Hebrew National Hot Dogs, I had the perfect base on which to build my totally unforgettable Southern Style Chili Slaw Dogs! All I had to do was start layering on toppings in a generous manner. I started with my delicious chili that’s just a touch sweet and totally delicious.
After adding a generous amount of chili, I topped it with my freshly prepared slaw that has just the right amount of tanginess thanks to the vinegar and Gluden’s Mustard.
Finally, I topped off my Southern Style Chili Slaw dogs with a generous drizzle of Gluden’s mustard and the remainder of my diced onions for a summer dish that looks awesome and tastes even better!
As I called all my guests to grab my messily perfect summer dish, I was proud of the fact that I had carried on a summer tradition that started with my mom and created uh-mazing Southern Style Chili Slaw Dogs that literally left my guest licking their fingers!
