Ingredients for the chili sauce: (to top approximately 16 hotdogs)
Place the flank steak into a food processor. At this time I put the vegetable oil into a large sauce pan (about 4.5 qt size) and set it to medium-medium high heat.
Using the pulse feature of the food processor pulse the steak 35-45 times, about 2-3 seconds each until the consistency looks like the above picture. Scrape the meat into the sauce pan and stir. Put the onions, garlic, and celery into the food processor and pulse until they are just as fine as the steak. Scrape this mixture into the sauce pan as well.
Keep stirring the mixture until all of the red color disappears. You don't have to get all of the moisture out but keep it cooking until the meat becomes gray (about 15 minutes).
While you are stirring the meat you can start mixing the ingredients for the sauce. I used a measuring cup and added the ingredients right in. Add the ketchup, chili sauce, yellow mustard, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder and ground cloves into the measuring cup and stir.
Pour this mixture into the sauce pan. Stir often and let the chili simmer for about 20 minutes.
Here is an up close picture to help you see the consistency of this chili dog chili sauce.
The way I like my chili dogs is on a soft potato roll, topped with mild cheddar cheese, chili and chopped yellow onions. If I'm feeling crazy I'll top it with some yellow mustard as well. Wow, this is a winner.
What is interesting with this recipe is that it's not the typical type of chili that you would normally eat out of a bowl. After my first bite of this chili dog I thought, "Wow, this chili is perfect for chili dogs!" Be sure not to leave out the ground cloves. It really adds a unique taste.
The above picture was taken with my cell phone. I just loved the way the waffle fries went along with the chili dog.
