Here is my recipe for a slawdog, which is a tasty but improbable construct of bun with a beanless ground beef sauce sometimes forming a bed for the frank, sometimes forming a blanket on top, yellow mustard, and finely chopped creamy sweat-sour green cabbage coleslaw crowning it all in place of the sauerkraut found in New York.

Method

  • Prep. Prepare the coleslaw (here are two good ones to try: Mayo dressed or sour cream dressed). Prepare the meat sauce.
  • Fire up. Prepare a grill for medium-high heat cooking. 
  • CookCook the franks on the grill. Steam the bun.
  • Serve. Put the dog in the bun, top with mustard, then the meat sauce, then the onions, then the slaw. The sequence varies from joint to joint, and I've even seen the meat sauce under the dog, but this is the way I like it. So there.
