A & W Coney Island Sauce 


2 small onions, finely chopped 
5 lbs. hamburger 
64 ounces Hunt's tomato Paste 
64 ounces Hunt's Tomato Puree 
1 1/2 c. sugar 
1/3 c. cider vinegar 
2 T. chili powder 
1 T. pepper 
1 T. celery seed 
3 T. plus 
1 t. salt 

Brown hamburger and onions in a very large skillet, drain. Add the rest of the ingredients
 and simmer for 3 1/2 hours. Stir frequently as it will tend to stick. This freezes very well. 
To get that authenic taste, use only Kogel franks and rehydrated dry minced onions in boiling water.  
Not certain how many this will serve, will depend on the serving size. 
It would yield
approx.  50  3 oz. servings but I'm not certain that amount is adequate,
 increase recipe as needed.

 

A smaller and weirder recipe:

Coney Island Hot Dog Sauce (Chili) 

2 Lbs. Ground Beef 
2 Packages Onion Soup Mix (1 Box) 
2 Cups Black Coffee 
1 - 6 oz can Tomato Paste 
1 Tablespoon Chili Powder 
1 Teaspoon Cumin Powder 
1 Teaspoon Allspice 
1/4 cup Vinegar 
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce 
3 Tablespoons Sugar 

Brown Ground Beef in a skillet and chop up real fine into individual granules. 
In a separate large saucepan - mix 2 cups of black coffee with all the other ingredients
 and cook over medium heat until boiling. Reduce to simmer and cook about 2 hours
 but you can do it just long enough to saturate the dehydrated onions in the soup mix if
 you wish. Add the Ground beef when it has finished browning.
