How to Make New York System Weiner Recipe
- Lightly brown half of the chopped onion in butter. Add hamburger and stir until the hamburger loosens into small pieces. Add rest of spices. Simmer on very low heat for at least 2 hours.
- Now it's time to build the weiner. The sequence is important!
1.) Put cooked weiner in bun.
2.) Put mustard on weiner.
3.) Put sauce on mustard.
4.) Put raw chopped onions on mustard.
5.) Sprinkle celery salt on top of onions.
- Hint: Throw your weiner buns in a microwave for five seconds to approximate that wonderful steam table sponginess.
- NOTE: The most authentic weiner is that made by Little Rhody Brand Frankfurts of Johnston, Rhode Island, the company that supplies weiners to all of the New York System-style restaurants in the state. If these aren't available to you, experiment with whatever you can find in your local grocery store, but steer away from jumbo-sized franks and anything smoked or filled with cheese!
