New York-Style Hot Dog Onions

9fe8cdee83b502b20163 550

This is an easy version of the traditional hot dog topping that's served by New York City street vendors.















1 tablespoon canola oil
or vegetable oil
1 large yellow onion
sliced into 1/4-inch thick rings
2 ½ tablespoons ketchup
½ teaspoon brown sugar, light
teaspoon chili powder
1 dash red hot pepper sauce
1 pinch cinnamon
½ cup water


Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions; cook and stir occasionally until the onions are slightly browned and somewhat soft, about 10 minutes. Stir in the ketchup, brown sugar, chili powder, hot sauce and cinnamon; mix well. Add the water and bring mixture to a boil; simmer, uncovered, until onions are completely tender and the liquid is mostly evaporated, an additional 10 minutes.

I miss the New York hot dog stands -- and always love the onion sauce with a little mustard.
I will try it this weekend with the grand kids. I am sure it will be great
