We’re aware of one actual restaurant recipe that has ever been released. In 1991 the Michigan Restaurant Association published “A Taste of Michigan”, a collection of more than 200 recipes from Michigan restaurants. David Gillie of Gillie’s Coney Island in Mt. Morris contributed a recipe to this book, “Gillie’s Flint Coney Island Hot Dog Chili Topping”. Regarding this recipe, Gillie has tld us “I made one change in that published recipe: I changed the normal extra fine raw ground ‘beef, beef heart, soy texture’ that I buy from Abbott’s Meat in 25# bags with suggesting they use lean hamburg and grind it extra fine.” Our test of Gillie’s recipe can be found here.

We do need to point out that there is no such thing as a single restaurant recipe for Flint Coney sauce. Abbott’s Meat provides a sauce base to the restaurants consisting of beef, beef heart and soy flour. This is the foundation for each restaurant’s individual recipe for the sauce, and is why there are so many minor variations in flavor.
