4 steps
  1. Prepare the Slaw

    Mix the cabbage together with the diced onions, peppers and carrots, and then make the dressing. Stir together mayo, vinegar, sugar, olive oil, dijon mustard, celery seed, and season with salt to taste. Mix the dressing into the cabbage mixture, and allow to sit in the refrigerator for at least one hour, or preferably overnight. Mix again thoroughly before serving and season to taste if needed.

  2. Build your Carolina Dogs

    Add an Impossible Beef Hot Dog to each toasted bun, and dress with yellow mustard, then chili, and lastly slaw on top. Enjoy!

  3. Make the Impossible Chili

    Heat the vegetable oil in a heavy pot over medium-high heat. Crumble Impossible Beef into the pot and sear until golden brown and cooked through, about 5 minutes. Stir in the dry ingredients: onion powder, garlic powder, chili powder, paprika, cumin, coriander, cayenne, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Add the tomatoes and stock. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer until thickened, about 30 minutes.

  4. Grill the Impossible Beef Hot Dogs

    Heat grill to 400°F. Grill Impossible Beef Hot Dogs, turning frequently until desired doneness, or about 5 minutes. Remove from grill. Toast buns on the grill while cooking your dogs.
