2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup onion, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 pound ground beef
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon prepared mustard
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon Tabasco
1/4 cup ketchup
1/2 cup tomato juice (1/2 to 1 cup)
In a large heavy skillet cook garlic and onion in oil over moderate heat, stirring, until onion is softened.
Add beef and cook, stirring and breaking up any lumps with a fork, until cooked through. Drain off any excess fat if desired.
Add remaining ingredients, adding just enough juice to create a spoonably loose but not soupy mixture. Simmer sauce, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes.
Makes enough sauce to top 6 hot dogs.
