Here's a very easy local style Hawaiian dish to make. All you need are these basic ingredients:
  • Hot Dogs (all beef! come on!)
  • Shoyu (soy sauce)
  • Sugar
  • Water
Additional items to make it a little better but not necessary:
  • mirin (rice wine) or sake
  • one onion
First, cut up the hot dogs (about 6) and sear them real quick in a frying pan and set them aside.

Then put roughly a 1/4 cup or more of shoyu, 1/4 cup mirin or sake, 1/8 water and a 1/4 cup of sugar into a pan or pot. If you don't have mirin or sake, just mix the shoyu with water and sugar. With this many hot dogs, you could use a whole onion. Slice up the onions and simmer with the liquids/sugar. Simmer it on medium-low until the sauce reduces a little.

After it reduces, add in the hot dogs. Let simmer on low for 30min or more and don't forget to stir it. Hot dogs get more tasty as they simmer longer. Watch until the hot dogs get a slight glaze on them and that's when you're good to go.

Serve in a small bowl with a lot of sauce and a few hot dogs. You will love the sweet shoyu sauce. Goes good on rice, too. Excellent for eating with a spoon while watching the fights!

Note: if anything besides all beef or mixed pork hot dogs are used (like soy, chicken, turkey or vegan, etc.) your kitchen will burst into flames from the fury of the Hawaiian Goddess Pele or the Night Marchers may also take residence in your home that night.
