Big Island Dogs


Sometimes you just need meat in tube form. Here’s a recipe I came up with (and I’m pretty proud of) that incorporates some of my favorite island flavors with a classic tube-steak. The spiral slicing really takes this recipe to the next level!

Some chopped fresh pineapple and red pepper flake would be an awesome sweet/hot topping for this. Next time!

Big Island Dogs

4 Johnsonville stadium bratwurst
1/2 cup Yoshida’s Original Sauce
2 tsp toasted sesame seeds
4 hoagie rolls
1 cup Asian slaw*

Spiral cut bratwurst (see below) and marinate in Yoshida’s sauce for 2-3 hours, turning ocassionally.

Grill brats over medium heat, re-dunking in sauce with each turn, until heated through and crispy.

Toast white sesame seeds in a dry pan over medium heat until golden and aromatic.

Toast hoagies over coals until golden brown. If you like soft rolls, wrap the hoagies in foil and grill a few minutes, flip and repeat until warmed through.

Add 1/4 cup of slaw to each roll, top with a brat, brush with additional sauce, and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Serve immediately.

1 tbsp. brown sugar

1 tbsp. mirin
1 tsp sesame oil

Combine all, and chill 1 hour.
