RECIPE BY: Tx2Step (on RecipeZaar)
Growing up in Upstate New York, I practically lived on this stuff. It was allegedly developed by a Greek immigrant, which is evident in the spice combination.
TEXAS HOT SAUCE
In a large saucepan brown beef and onions, breaking up large chunks. Drain. Add remaining ingredients and simmer, uncovered, 2 hours. Tastes better when reheated the next day.
I grew up near Elmira, NY, and yes M&M's is awesome. I tried an online Coney Dog sauce recipe one time, and it called for pickle seeds. They totally ruined the sauce.
