Texas Hot Dog Sauce
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 pound ground pork
1/2 pound ground beef
2 hot dogs -- finely diced
1 onion -- chopped

1 1/2 teaspoons browning sauce
1 tablespoon ground black pepper

1 6 oz can tomato paste
8 cups water
1 tablespoon paprika

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook
until soft. Stir in beef and pork and cook, stirring frequently until brown.
Reduce the heat to medium-low and stir in hot dogs. Saute for 3 to 4 minutes.
Drain off any excess fat.
Stir in the browning sauce, pepper, salt, tomato paste and
water. Bring mixture to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for 1 hour, uncovered.
Stir occasionally. Stir in paprika, chili powder, cinnamon and parsley.
Taste and adjust seasoning, if it is necessary. Simmer for
ten minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
Using a hand-held mixer, blend the bread crumbs into the
sauce. Serve over grilled hot dogs.
