  1. For The Slaw & Sauces:
  2. For the peanut sauce, combine all ingredients in a mason jar and ensure lid is tightly sealed. Shake until all ingredients are thoroughly combined.

  4. For the Sriracha Ketchup, combine ketchup and Sriracha sauce.
  5. To Grill And Assemble:

  7. Heat up grill to medium heat (400 degrees).
  8. Score each hot dog 3-4 times on one side.
  9. Grill dogs for 8 minutes, rotating every 2 minutes (this will allow hot dogs to heat thoroughly without over-cooking or drying out).
  10. Toast the hot dog buns, cut side down on the grill for 30-45 seconds, watching them closely.
  11. Place 1 ounce of slaw on the bun. Add the grilled hotdog and fries. Then drizzle with Sriracha ketchup and Pad Thai Sauce, garnish and enjoy!
