Charlie's Pool Room - Grandma Fencz's Secret Sauce
I've only been to Charlie's Pool Room twice I believe. I liked what I ate, but I really can't remember what the sauce tasted like. I found this website where they try to recreate the sauce (link below).
I might try and make it this weekend. Does anyone have any comments after reading the ingredients? I remember the sauce being pretty spicy, but I could be wrong, as I also remember they served you little sport peppers with your dog, right?
Actually, I have everything at home already except I might only have regular Hungarian Paprika, not smoked. I might not have brown sugar either.
2 tbsp. cooking oil
2 large white onions, sliced
1 garlic clove, minced
1/3 c. ketchup
2 to 4 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce, depending on taste
1/2 tsp. vinegar
1/2 tsp. brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. Hungarian smoked paprika
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
1-2 dashes of Cayenne pepper, depending on taste
1 1/2 cup water
2 tbsp. all purpose flour
In a pan or Dutch oven, saute the onions in oil over medium high heat. Add garlic; cook until tender. Meanwhile, combine ketchup, Worcestershire, vinegar, sugar, paprika and remaining seasonings and water. Stir into onions; reduce heat and simmer on low heat for 2 to 2 1/2 hours or until tender. Then add flour and remaining 2 tablespoons water. Stir into mixture and cook until thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool. Can be served on hot dogs warm or at room temperature. http://awesomehotdogs.com...hungarian-onion-sauce/
