Take your regular off the shelf hot dog and make them something truly awesome by infusing them with a subtle zesty kick from simmering them in beer, onions, and chiles and topping with beer-infused sauerkraut. I have to admit, I’m not normally a big sauerkraut fan, but this recipe really changed my mind Give it a try! My buds at the firehouse really love it.
8 hot dogs
8 ounce(s) beer
1 onion, thinly sliced
4 jalapeños (optional), very thinly sliced
3 cups sauerkraut
3 tablespoon(s) mustard
8 hot dog buns
1/4 cup diced green onions
- In a medium pot, bring hot dogs, beer, onions, and jalapeños (if using) to a simmer. Let simmer uncovered for about 5 minutes.
- Add sauerkraut and cover. Cook another 4 to 4 minutes. Mix in mustard just prior to removing from heat.
- While hot dogs are simmering in beer and sauerkraut, lightly toast the buns for a few minutes in the oven or toaster.
- Put hot dogs in buns and top with sauerkraut.Top with diced green onions.
- Serve immediately.
