Original Greek Coney Sauce

From the kitchen of Kevin Taylor, the BBQ Guru

I am a Coney dog aficionado. More than once I have opted for a Coney dog over a nice steak. I have tried dozens of Coney sauces and this one is by far my favorite. Our house always has a good supply of this in the freezer…even Kate likes this one!

1 pound ground beef
1 cup shortening
1 medium onion, diced
1/3 cup chili powder
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon black pepper, coarsely ground
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon cumin powder
1 teaspoon allspice
1 teaspoon basil, dried
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

Brown beef, onion and shortening. Add remaining ingredients. Simmer for 2 hours. You may have to add some water. This freezes well.
