A Sabrett push cart hot dog isn't complete until it's slathered with the tangy orange/red onion sauce. For a buck or two you can grab a hot dog with the works on the fly from these popular umbrella-covered food carts in many major cities and at special events. You see hundreds of 'em in New York City, especially around Central Park. In fact, that's where the sample for this re-creation was obtained. While most of the Sabrett toppings are standard hot dog fare—ketchup, mustard, sauerkraut—the onion sauce makes these hot dogs special.

This is spot on, I have been out of NY for over 40 years and have missed this. Now that I have this recipe I use it often.

This recipe is dead on! I used to live in New Jersey, and among the things I missed when I moved was hot dogs from a hot dog truck. These onions are exactly like I'm back home in Newark buying a dog on the corner THANKS!
