This is a style of coney sauce that is found in the Greek restaurants and Coney Islands around the Detroit, Michigan area. It is very unique and different from New York coney sauce. Serve over steamed hot dogs in steamed buns with mustard and chopped raw onion if you wish.

Directions

  1. Combine the ground chuck, chili powder, cinnamon, paprika, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, cumin, cayenne pepper, allspice, mustard, beef base, and 1 cup water in a large saucepan over medium-high heat; use a potato masher to break up the beef and mix the rest of the ingredients through the beef; bring to a simmer; reduce heat to medium-low and continue to simmer 2 to 3 hours, adding water occasionally to keep the mixture moist. Once the mixture is softened, stir in the crushed crackers to thicken.

Instead of adding water and thickening with crackers, make more gravy using the same liquid and dry ingredients in the recipe (sans meat, of course), bring to a boil, thicken with a flour and water mix and add back to the cooked meat. This will look and taste like the product at places like National Coney Island, or Ted's in Port Huron. PS, leave out the Cayenne. These restaurants do not use this. If you like hot, go ahead, but this isn't used in the restaurants, at least not at this strength.

Thank you. Since we moved to Iowa, we have to wait for the big road trip to get a decent coney. Thanks for bringing Detroit back home to us. Go WINGS.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. My husband was born and raised in Port Huron and he always raves about the PH Coney sauce. I've never tried to make it myself so on Father's Day I decided to search and make some. Wow, for this recipe to pop up. I followed it to the T and it was PERFECT. A big hit at my party and my husband loved it. A keeper! Thanks so much. OH, and the potato masher tip. Never thought of it before. YOU ROCK!
