The difference between Italian spaghetti and Filipino spaghetti is the addition of banana ketchup, which makes this a rather sweet dish. Oh, and I almost forgot the hot dogs!

Directions

  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the spaghetti, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the garlic and onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the beef and pork; season with salt and pepper. Cook and stir until the meat has browned. Pour in the spaghetti sauce, banana ketchup, sugar, and water. Simmer until the sauce has thickened, about 15 minutes. Stir in hot dog slices and continue to cook until hot dogs are heated through. Serve over spaghetti with Cheddar cheese sprinkled on top.

This recipe needed a little improvement. For authenticity purposes you must get the red asian style hot dogs from an international market. If unavailable, use Nathans all beef hot dogs or Hebrew national all beef hot dogs. Regular American hot dogs will ruin the flavor of this dish as they are much too salty. (The all beef american hot dogs listed above are a great substitution-not only are they much less salty but they have the red color reminicent of the asian hot dogs.)Also,don't use spaghetti sauce. Use two bottles of Jufran Banana ketchup and 8-10 ounces tomato sauce. Omit the sugar. Only add the water if sauce needs thinning out.

This sounded so odd, I thought I would give this a chance...should have stuck with my gut instincts. Found banana ketsup at the ethnic store and followed the directions, but this was so awful!

My first husband was Filipino, and this was a staple in his family. I ended up loving MOST Filipino food, but this wasn't one of my favorites. It's all right, not super great. For authenticity, buy the pink hot dogs they sell at the Asian market (same place you have to go to find banana ketchup).
