About 15 years ago or more, my sister Judy sent me a recipe box filled with recipes that our family had been using since she was a kid (and she's 11 years older than I am) and a few that were a little more "recent." This is the hot dog sauce that made it to every party ever held by anyone in my family as well as many of our friends.
1 pound hamburger, browned, DO NOT DRAIN
1 quart water
Season to taste:
Cook 30 minutes and adjust seasonings as needed.
*Cumin would be a zippy little addition to this recipe.
