National Hot Dog Month - in my house A.K.A. Texas Hot, Coney or Chili Dog

July is National Hot Dog Month in the USA.  At my house, we prefer our dogs to be dressed up.  Some like the relish and ketchup condiment to be their preference.  For others, it is all about the sauce, A.K.A. Texas Hot, Coney or the Chili Dog in these parts of the USA.
Texas Hot Sauce

    • 4 cups water
    • 12 oz. beef stock

    • 1 teaspoon parsley
    • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
