A little tasting we did for a client that requested a specialty hot dog bar during the dance portion of the wedding. We did a couple different variations for her but I chose this one to share in particular because.... well its the bomb! Very simple recipe so check it out below, and yes she will be serving this to her guests!
URBN Market Azn Dog
Hebrew National Beef Frank 7"
Korean Radish 1each
Carrot 1 each
Sugar .5 Cup
Rice Wine Vinegar .5 Cup
Go Chu Jang Pepper Paste 1Tbs
Mayonnaise 1 Cup
Sesame Oil 1Tsp
Diced Spring Onion 1 Each
Black Pepper TT
Black and White Sesame Seeds
Start by cutting the Korean Radish and Carrots into a thin spiral cut. If you do not have a spiral cuter a grater will do just fine just dont use a fine grain because you want these to add texture to the dish. Place these in a cup or container with a Tbs of salt and let sit for 20 minutes to pull out all a good amount of water. Drain then soak with the sugar and rice wine vinegar for a quick pickle about 10 minutes.
Now make the spicy mayonnaise. The reason I use Go Chu Jang as opposed to sriracha is you get a roasted subtle heat. So combine the Pepper Paste, Mayonnaise, and Vinegar and put into a squeeze bottle for better plating and application.
Now cook your hot dog to your preference. I like to start them in the microwave wrapped for about a minute just to bring the middle to temp then finish on a char grill because you cant beat the texture using a broiler. You could always use a grill pan or a regular pan to crisp the outside.
I toast the inside of the bun so it can hold up to all the moisture of the fixings. Assemble all ingredients a voila! the Azn Dog. Spice it up once a while!
You get everything from hot, cold, spicy, sweet, juicy, and crispy. Whats not to love! Enjoy
