Recipe by Julesong

This is one of my adopted recipes. It looks like a dish my family and I would enjoy as appetizers, so I hope to make it and edit it in the future.

I made as diner for my Husband and his friend, and it was really good.. a lit bit sweet. I added slice white onions while the sauce was caramelizing. I think i'll either take out next time either the sugar or the molasses, Cause combined it's a bit much. Still good... I'm thinking may be you could add a little jalapeño or something to make it spicy at the same time.
