If you’ve ever been to Quebec City, chances are you’ve indulged in the deliciousness of Chez Ashton. Renowned for their poutine, this restaurant chain has another well-kept secret: hot dog sauce. These meat buns (not to be confused with meatloaf!) are a flavorful blend of seasoned ground pork and beef. They evoke the Tex-Mex taco or sloppy joe concept, making them a tantalizing treat.
Served in a hot dog bun with a touch of ketchup and thin slices of onion, meat buns can also be a delightful addition to poutine!
Lean ground beef
Medium ground pork
Salt and pepper
Hot dog buns
Onions, thinly sliced
In a large bowl, mix the ground meat with cinnamon, brown sugar, and Worcestershire sauce.
*For a finer ground meat, pass the meat through a food processor and pulse for a few seconds.
In a non-stick skillet over medium heat, soften the onions for about 5 minutes or until translucent.
Add the meat. Continue cooking, breaking it into small pieces with a heat-resistant rigid spatula. Drain if needed*.
*If a large amount of liquid starts to accumulate in the pan, gently tilt it to remove the excess fat.
Add the poultry seasoning and beef broth. Simmer over low heat for about 50 minutes or until the broth is completely absorbed.
Add Italian breadcrumbs and anise. Season to taste.
When serving, place the ground beef mixture in a lightly toasted hot dog bun and add ketchup (or homemade ketchup) and thin slices of onion.
Using oil for cooking ground meat is optional as most ground meats already contain enough fat to be cooked without adding additional oil. However, coating the bottom of the pan with vegetable oil can help prevent the meat from burning or sticking, which can be particularly useful when using a stainless steel pan.
If you’re not using oil, you’ll need to keep a closer eye on the meat during the first few minutes of cooking and stir it more frequently to prevent burning.
