Rhode Island Hot Wieners
This dish is only common to Rhode Island and is known as New York System Hot Wieners - a meat sauce you put atop hot dogs. I stumbled across this recipe from my husband's old neighborhood friend who visited and shared this recipe with us. It's as close to the original wieners as you can find, especially if you are living on the west coast and can only get one of these hot wieners when you visit Rhode Island! There are many variations of this recipe - we are happy to have this one. It is difficult to locate the right type of hot dog on the west coast, however, so I use beef hot dogs.

Rhode Island Hot Wieners Preparation
On medium-high heat in a 2 quart pan, brown ground beef, do not drain any liquid after ground beef has browned. Add 1-1/2 cups of the onions; set aside the remaining onions for later. Add the remaining ingredients and stir everything together. Add enough water to cover the ground beef to the top and allow to boil. Once mixture comes to a boil, lower heat to low and allow to simmer until liquid has boiled down (this may take an hour or more). Stir constantly. When liquid is almost completely gone, mash cooked ground beef with a masher - meat mixture should be finely coarse. Grill the hot dogs (do not boil or steam), place in buns and spoon meat sauce over hot dogs. Add mustard and onions and sprinkle celery salt on top of everything!
