At Cowtown Dogs, we take pride in blending traditional Texas cooking with modern culinary trends. Our journey is a story of flavors, innovation, and a deep-rooted love for the Lone Star State’s culinary heritage. Our claim to fame? The Original Texas Style Hot Dog – a creation that won us the title of “Best Of Dallas 2022”. Let’s dive into how we fuse Texas traditions into our hot dogs.
Euro Classic® Brioche Bun
We begin with the Euro Classic® brioche bun. This isn’t just any bread; it’s a game-changer. Its soft, rich texture sets the stage for what’s to come. This key ingredient is a nod to our belief that great dishes start with great foundations, much like the sturdy barns and homes built by Texas settlers.
Next, we bring the heat with olive oil-marinated jalapeño peppers, grilled to perfection. This step encapsulates the Texas spirit – bold and unapologetic. Jalapeños are a staple in Texan cooking, representing the state’s love for spice and flavors that pack a punch.
All-Beef Hickory Smoked Hotdog
At the heart of our hot dog is the premium, all-beef, hickory-smoked hot dog. Smoking meats is a time-honored Texas tradition, harking back to the days of cattle ranching and outdoor cooking. This method imparts a depth of flavor that’s quintessentially Texan.
Raye’s® Stone Ground Yellow Mustard
Then comes Raye’s® Stone Ground Yellow Mustard, a condiment steeped in history. Made in the last mill in the U.S. that still grinds mustard seeds the traditional way, this mustard connects us to the past. It’s a tribute to the artisans and craftsmen who have shaped Texas’s culinary landscape.
Sloppy Eddie Chili
Our Sloppy Eddie chili is where tradition meets innovation. It’s a cross between a sloppy joe and chili, named after the entrepreneur Eddie Salazar. This signature chili is our way of adding a modern twist to Texas chili – a staple in Texan cuisine known for its robust flavors and hearty nature.
Texas Style Toppings
Finally, the crowning glory: our Texas-style toppings. Choose between Dublin Sweet Onions, offering a tangy sweetness, or the Hot ‘n Spicy Onion Pepper Mix for those who love a spicy kick. These toppings are a homage to Texas’s agricultural bounty, showcasing local produce and flavors.
Blending Traditions with Trends
At Cowtown Dogs, our philosophy is simple: honor Texas traditions while embracing modern culinary trends. We believe that the best flavors come from a deep understanding of the past, combined with a willingness to innovate. Our hot dogs are more than just a meal; they’re an experience that takes you on a journey through Texas’s culinary history.
