Sabretts' Onions In Sauce (For Hot Dogs)
Vicki Butts (lazyme)
Here's a cool clone for the tangy orange-red onion sauce slathered over hot dogs ordered from Sabretts push carts. For a buck or two you can grab a hot dog with the works on the fly from these popular umbrella-covered food carts in many major cities. You find hundreds of 'em in New York City, especially around Central Park (that's where the sample for this recreation was obtained).

How to Make Sabretts' Onions In Sauce (For Hot Dogs)
- Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Saute sliced onion in the oil for 5 minutes, until onions are soft, but not brown.
- Add water, tomato paste, corn syrup, cornstarch, salt and red pepper flakes, and stir. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 45 minutes.
- Add vinegar. Continue to simmer for an additional 30 to 45 minutes or until most of the liquid has reduced and the sauce is thick.
