Chilli Beef Hot Dogs by Chef Bjoern Wassmuth, Executive Chef, The German Gymnasium

Combine some simple ingredients to make a topping for your hot dog that will knock your socks off!

Preparation – Fennel & Cabbage Slaw

Place the fennel and white cabbage into a large bowl and add the Puszta Salat, with some of the brandy vinegar, mix well.  Add the olive oil, season with salt and pepper and mix in the spring onions and fresh coriander.  Leave to marinate until ready to use.  

Preparation - Chef Bjoern’s Giant Chilli Beef Hot Dog Sauce

Put all the ingredients into a bowl and whisk together until combined. 

Preparation – Giant Chilli Beef Frankfurters

You can either heat the giant chilli beef frankfurters in the oven or in a bain-marie with hot, not boiling water, until hot through.  Place on a char-grill for a couple of minutes, turning once, until both sides are nicely charred.

Preparation – Sides and Plate Up

Cook the Lamb Weston Stealth Fries according to pack instructions until crispy and browned.  Toss in a mixing bowl with a sprinkle of German chip seasoning and plate up.  Split the brioche bun, pack with fennel & cabbage slaw, add the chilli beef frankfurter, top off with Chef Bjoern’s hot dog sauce and a sprinkle of crispy fried onions, spring onions and slices of chilli or Jalapeño peppers for extra kick!
