This recipe is from an ex boyfriend who actually won a state cooking contest with it. I use it on ribs, chicken and sausage. I have also used it in the crockpot with Lil' Smokies.
- 2⁄3 cup onion, finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons vinegar
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 cup ketchup
- 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon celery seed
- 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
- 1⁄2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 cup water
- 5 drops louisiana hot sauce
- Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and whisk well.
- Simmer on low heat for about an hour to allow flavors to meld.
- Brush the sauce on your meats as you are grilling.
Dear Sherrybeth, I made your sauce exactly as you gave it!! Yes, we liked it, really and truly. It was just a bit too overpoweringly-tomatoey-spicy. Quite pleasant -- I can imagine this sauce with a game stew. The taste was great, but it would tend to dominate most meats except maybe salted and smoked meats. I used it on Boerewors -- translated, it means Farmers' Sausage. I thought it was okay with that, as the spicy flavours of Boerewords are quite strong. Well worth trying -- anyone who reads this, remember I am in South Africa and my judgement of such a sauce may be skew!!!! Thanks, Sherrybeth!
