Does anyone have a recipe or source for a great NYC Red Onion Sauce? Mon, 04/19/10 10:55 AM (permalink)
[Helpful answer received] / [List Solutions Only]
Hi all,
I've been trying out some recipes at home. I had a go at red onion sauce yesterday and it wasn't all that great. Does anyone have a recipe or is it better to buy it? I heard Sabretts had it in their range - is it economical to use it on a cart?

I'm not sure I'll even be able to get it over here, but I heard it was very popular, so I'd like to try and offer it in some form.

Cheers

      Try this one, it's basically the Frugal Gourmet version that's been altered just a bit:
       
      1 tablespoon olive oil
      2 cloves of garlic
      2 medium yellow onions, chopped
      1/4 cup marinara sauce (the commercial bottled stuff is just fine)
      1 tablespoon paprika

      1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
      salt and pepper to taste

      Heat the olive oil a large skillet. Add the onions, a bit of salt. Saute over medium heat until the onions start to get tender, then add the garlic. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are very soft and start to brown. Add the marinara, cayenne and paprika. Simmer for 15 minutes. Add salt and pepper to
      taste.

          I like this one.  I usually substitute a little sugar for the corn syurp.

                Don't get me wrong, just an observation.

                That Sabrett onion sauce must be soup for a hot Dog?
                Strikes me strange that 4 cups of water plus 1/4 cup of vinegar, to 1 medium onion would be anything but soupy.

                  You have to reduce the liquid.

                     The Sabrett onion sauce that I tried on my last trip to N.Y.C. was not watery at all. Kind of sweet, oniony, syrupy and tomatoey all in one. I loved it. Seems to work well with the mustard and the kraut.  I will also try the recipe in the afore mentioned post.

                      Read step #5 and #6 in the recipe.  DD

                        I clipped this out of the newspaper about 25-30 years ago:
                         
                        New York Pushcart Hot Dog Onion Sauce
                         
                        2 tablespoons vegetable oil
                        2 medium onions, cut in 1/4-inch slices
                        1/4 cup ketchup
                        pinch of ground cinnamon
                        1/8 teaspoon chili powder
                        Dash of hot pepper sauce
                        Dash of salt
                        1/2 cup water
                         
                        In a medium-size skillet, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat; add onion slices and saute for about 7 minutes, until golden and limp.  Mix in the ketchup, then add cinnamon, chili powder, hot pepper sauce and salt.  Pour in water; stir.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat and  simmer, uncovered, for about 10 minutes.  Serve over hot dogs.  Makes 6-8 servings.
