Beer Braised Hot Dogs | Well Seasoned Gourmet Food Store

There is just something about a hot dog in the summertime! We love this twist on a classic dog...braise it in beer on the grill. You can thank us later!

A Well Seasoned Recipe - Visit us in store on 64th Avenue, in Langley, BC

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 8 of your favorite BBQ style hot dogs
  • 2 yellow onion, sliced into 1/4-inch-thick rings
  • ½tablespoon brown sugar
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 1 ½ cups your favorite local ale
  • 8 hot dog buns, toasted
  • Grainy mustard & fresh basil to garnish



Preheat your BBQ to medium high, about 375 degrees F.

In a frying pan or disposable tinfoil pan, melt the butter and add the onions and brown sugar, season with salt & pepper – cook, stirring occasionally until the onions start to soften and caramelize.

Add the hot dogs to the pan, nestling in among the onions. Pour in the beer and braise the dogs, turning once or twice, until they are completely cooked through & nice and hot, about 30 minutes.

The liquid will reduce but check it occasionally to make sure it hasn’t dried up completely.

Place a hot dog in each bun and serve topped with the braised onions, a generous slather of your favorite mustard and some fresh basil leaves to add some zip!
