You know when you have the thought – ah, screw it? Should have listened a bit closer to my inner self saying that this was a bad idea. Alas I did not.
Was heading towards these amazing looking steaks & was going to make a “foodie” type of crock & then out of the corner of my eye…hot dogs. Should have known way better, but those damn dogs were calling to me. What kind of crock could be made with those lips & butthole tubes?
Then got idea that could go beyond the lowly pork & beans with cut up wieners & give this bastard a leg up.
- 2 cans vegetarian beans in tomato sauce (didn’t want that nasty/delicious pork slab)
- 1 can great northern beans (washed & drained)
- 1 can black beans (washed & drained)
- 1/3 cup bbq sauce
- 1/4 cup ketchup
- 1/2 diced onion
- 1 diced green pepper
- 4 slices pre-cooked bacon diced up
- 160z package Hebrew National Beef Dogs (cut up in 2 inch sections)
- 1 tblsp pepper
Cook that nasty up:
- Um, throw it all in the cooker & set on LOW for 6hrs
Really did kinda smell excellent. But, I’d ate a full plate of serious nachos washed down with some Fremont IPA a couple hrs before dinner – had to let the stuff simmer for a bit…did not look appealing.
End result: didn’t turn out too terrible bad, but don’t think I’ll go down the wiener with bean road again. (Think the pictures kind of tell the story – sorry for awful picts btw). This dish was also a good $20.00 less than what I had in mind – hence the saying “You get what you pay for.”
Next time I’m going to do Seattle Dog crock – package of hot dogs & package of cream cheese & call it good!
Rock out with your wiener out. Couldn’t help that one.
PS – there are 2 spellings for wiener (one is Euro & one is American) – so I’ll use it as I see fit.
