  • Cooking Directions

    Make the chili: Sweat the bacon and brisket for a few moments until the bacon releases its fat and the brisket begins to brown. Add the onion, garlic and spices and cook for a few more minutes on low heat. Add the stock or water, ketchup, mustard and molasses and cook on a slow simmer until the brisket is almost tender.

    Add the ground beef and cook until the brisket is melting and the sauce is reduced and thick. Finish with the fresh herbs (optional) and a squeeze of fresh lime juice.

    Make the haute dogs: Make the pickled onions by tossing together the chopped onions, mild curry powder and seasoned rice wine vinegar. Grill hot dog links until cooked though to desired doneness.

    Brush New England-style hot dog buns with olive oil or butter and lightly toast on the grill.

    Assemble the dogs: Place one link in bun. Top with chili, pepper jack cheese, pickled onions and cilantro. Enjoy!
