Directions

Put a skillet over medium heat and drizzle in a 2-count of olive oil. When the oil gets hazy, add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring, until it is soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the ground beef, breaking it up with the back of a spoon, and cook until nicely browned, about 10 more minutes. Stir in the ketchup, chili powder, and mustard and simmer for 15 minutes until thickened. Season with salt and pepper.

While the chili is cooking, get the grill going. Place a large grill pan on 2 burners over medium-high heat or preheat an outdoor gas or charcoal barbecue and get it very hot. Take a few paper towels and fold them several times to make a thick square. Blot a small
amount of oil on the paper towel. Then carefully and quickly wipe the hot grates of the grill to make a nonstick grilling surface.
Bring a pot of water up to a simmer and parboil the dogs for about 5 minutes. Take them out of the water, pat them dry, and grill them just long enough to mark them. (That'll give them a grilled flavor too.) Brush the insides of the rolls with olive oil and lay them face down on the grill; cook until toasty. To serve, put a dog in each roll and top with the chili and some Cheddar.

    This recipe was O.K., but the next time I want a chili dog, I will just get carry out from the nearest Coney Island.

    The recipe is really good, but I made a few changes to suit my family's taste. I added significantly more chili powder (probably about 6 T. total, about 2-3 t. of cumin, and it didn't need extra salt because of the salt in the ketchup. Overall, it was really good and the best hot dog chili recipe I've found. It's very easy and simple but definitely needs an adjustment in spices.

    To save energy, fry the ground beef, then when it is about halfway done, add the onion and garlic. Use one can tomato paste and one can tomato sauce and one diced fresh tomato instead of ketchup. Also, grill the hot dogs without boiling them. They will have much more grilled flavor. Brush the hot dog buns with mustard instead of olive oil and do not toast. There is plenty of salt and pepper in the mustard, tomato paste and sauce, so any more is not necessary.
