        Skip the tomato sauce, and it won't be sloppy joe.

          Make Greek Style Coney Sauce. It's on another thread. Use the search function. This one comes from the "Killer Hot dog Chili Recipe" Thread

          If any of you have ever eaten a Greek style coney dog, you have ingested a huge amount of lard. Here is the most authentic coney dog recipe I have ever collected. It comes from a place in Detroit...sorry, but I am sworn to secrecy. The deceased owner claims any good Greek will load up his coney sauce with lard. This recipe calls for 1 cup of lard per pound of meat..that means 6 cups in Craig's recipe. So, if you have eaten a Greek coney dog in Detroit and loved it...chances are you have eaten something similar to Craig's recipe.

          BTW...NOT taking sides!! Just passing on what many folks...including me...think is the best coney sauce on the planet.


          Original Greek Coney Sauce

          1 pound Ground beef
          1 cup lard
          1 medium Onion(s), diced
          1/3 cup Chili powder
          2 teaspoons Paprika
          1 teaspoon Black pepper, coarsely ground
          1 teaspoon Garlic powder
          1 teaspoon Cumin powder
          1 teaspoon Allspice
          1 teaspoon Basil, dried
          1 teaspoon Salt
          1/2 teaspoon Oregano, dried

          To get the right consistency, cover the meat with water and soak, in the fridge, for about 30 minutes. Then take a fork and break up any remaining chunks. Drain the water and go on to browning. You will have some water while browning but it will slowly steam off.
          Brown beef, onion and shortening.
          Add remaining ingredients.
          Simmer for 2 hours. You may have to add some water.
          This freezes well.
          I made this over the weekend with a few slight modifications and it was good. The modifications were I added Celery Seeds just 'cause I like Celery seeds and I saw them in another sauce recipe. I also added Ice to the water for soaking the meat and lined a colander with 1 layer of Cheese Cloth and drained the meat thru it. Worked like a charm. It was a little dry at the end so rather than add water I used a small can of tomato sauce. This one's a keeper!

            I love ground beef and beef gravy over mashed potatoes.
            Cook up some ground beef. Season it with whatever you like, onions, peppers, spices. Add canned beef gravy but don't make it too sloppy. Keep it kinda thick. When all the flavors are incorporated, pour it into a crater of mashed taters. Good Stuff!
