Coney Island hot dog sauce

I found this recipe over on I can't wait to try it out

1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon margarine
1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1/2 - 1 medium onion, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
2 - 3 tablespoons chili powder
1 - tablespoon prepared mustard
1 (6 oz) can tomato paste
1 1/2 cups water
2-3 tablespoons brown sugar
dash Worcestershire
Salt and pepper to taste
hot dogs and hot dog buns

I browned my meat first in about 1 1/2 cups of water in a pan or pot. This also helps to remove the fat from the hamburger. Make sure to break up the meat as fine as possible (a potato masher works great). I mince up my onion and add it along with the hamburger as it cooks. When the meat is cooked, drain and return to the pot. Add the garlic and cook for a couple minutes. Add the remaining ingredients except the hot dogs and add the mixture to your crock pot. Turn the crock pot on low and cook for 2 hours. I always start my crock pot on high and then once it gets going I turn to low. I tweaked the sauce up a bit and added brown sugar and Worcestershire sauce. Serve the Coney sauce on top of cooked hot dogs with diced onions and mustard.

To cook the sauce on the stove, prepare the mixture the same way and just simmer on low for about 45 minutes to 1 hour
