Recipe: A&W Coney Dog

This dish is my family's favourite. We always go to A&W Restaurant just to eat this along with rootbeer. But we can't go there often because this dish is quite pricey. So, I decide to find the recipe and make it at home. I change the original recipe a little bit so it suit my taste. You can see the original one here.

  • 8 hotdog buns
  • 8 chicken frankfurters (I use Ayamas)
  • 1 large onion, finely diced
  • Cheddar cheese, finely grated (I use Anchor Cheddar cheese slice) *optional
Meat Sauce
  • 400 g beef mince (I use Ramly)
  • Olive oil
  • 6 tablespoon tomato puree (I use Kimball)
  • 2 tablespoon Worchestershire sauce (I use Lea & Perrins)
  • 2 tablespoon cumin powder
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon white pepper
  • 1 cup water
  1. Heat the olive oil in a pot until smoking then add the mince and sear until slightly brown.
  2. Add in tomato puree, Worchestershire sauce, cumin powder, chili powder, white pepper, water and let simmer until the meat is soft.
  3. Add salt to taste and let cool.
  4. Just before serving, heat up frankfurters (steam or poach in boiling water for 10 minutes), microwave hotdog buns.
  5. Place frankfurter in the warm bun, ladle the meat sauce over the frankfurter and topped with diced onions, cheese and served immediately.
  1. Only microwave the hotdog buns for no more than 15 seconds, so they are very soft and warm.
  2. The Coney Dog  "flavor" come from the cumin, so use this ingredient to balance the falvor of the meat sauce.
  3. Make sure the meat is properly minced so it don't take a lot of time until it's very soft.
  4. The measurement in the recipe is just as a guide. You can add or reduce it if you want.
  5. The original recipe add sugar while I'm not.
  6. You doesn't need to use the same brand like I use. Feel free to use the others.
  7. People don't usually use Worchestershire sauce in their dish so they may not know what is it. You can click here for more detail.  
  8. If you follow this recipe, the meat sauce may be enough for more than 8 servings, you just need to add more bun and frankfurter.
