Re: american dishes

Mumza, Kosher food production is supervised by a Rabbi in accordance with Jewish dietary laws.  The hot dogs are always beef because most Jewish people don't eat pork.

Dimitri, the trend all over the states is to pile a variety of different toppings on hot dogs.  Start with a good quality dog and bun.  I think hot dogs taste better grilled and sometimes I do them in the oven when I don't want to bother with the bbq.  I put them in a roasting pan in a moderately hot oven and keep turning them until they are brown and crispy on the outside.  Here are some ideas for toppings:

Tex Mex Dog:  Chili con carne, cheddar cheese, chopped red onion and diced jalapenos.  Some people add mustard to this one. 

Chicago Dog:  Dill pickle pear, tomato wedges, Yellow Mustard, sport peppers, celery salt.  The defining item is the bright "Neon" Green Relish  that may only be available in the States.

I've done everything from kimchi and pickled veg, to saag paneer.  Have fun!

Sauerkraut/Choucroute is fermentated cabbage. Its pickled and has a sour favour. This thread seems to be the most helpful..

Re: american dishes

I would suggest enjoying  a Perfect Manhattan while you are researching wink




2 ounces straight rye whiskey or bourbon (Candian club is pretty traditional but any good rye or bourbon would do)
1/2 ounce sweet vermouth
1/2 ounce dry vermouth
2 dashes Angostura bitters
maraschino cherry

Stir with ice then strain into a chilled glass.    add the cherry

Of course, I had forgotten about things like beef sausages  oops
Now I feel daft !
Whenever I think about sausages I always think they are made mainly of pork and forget they are also made from different meats .
Sausages are not something that I buy very much.

Re: american dishes

Mumza I don't buy them that often either but when I do I buy the Kosher ones because they taste so good!  yummy  We mostly buy Hebrew National because all the stores stock them.  On the healthy side, I've tried a few of the chicken sausages that are available but find them to be too dry for my taste. 

Ashen, what a great idea!   thumbsup

Re: american dishes

I like Kosher quality because it's free of hormones and additives, it's all natural and the way the food is raised all the way through the butchering process has to follow Kosher laws.  It's especially important to some because hot dogs can be full of additives, etc.  I often buy Kosher chicken, but any product that has the symbol means to me, that it's a pretty pure product and it's clean.

Re: american dishes

I prefer the Boarshead brand made of beef and pork myself, I've never gotten used to the taste of kosher dogs. 

I've always been a fan of grilling hot dogs on a skillet.  However over the past few years I've been lowering my salt consumption and I find that by boiling the hot dogs first I can get rid of some of the saltiness and then finish them on the grill.

I've never liked sauerkraut but I do love coleslaw on a dog.  Mustard, chili, raw onion, and cole slaw, yum.
