Try this on baby back ribs or grilled chicken. The beer in it gives a great flavor- reminds me of my dad's cooking. His favorite thing to Q was always pork steaks, but I think that was a St. Louis tradition. He always preferred shoulder blade steaks over sliced pork butt, but my mom differed with him on that opinion. I liked it either way.
- 2⁄3 cup finely chopped onion
- 2 -3 cloves garlic, minced

- 1 1⁄2 cups Heinz chili sauce

- 2 tablespoons prepared yellow mustard
- 1⁄2-1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (only if you like it spicy hot) (optional)
- To make the sauce, cook onion and garlic in oil in a small saucepan until the onions become tender.
- Add the chili sauce, beer, honey, Worcestershire sauce and mustard to the pan, stirring to mix well.
- Bring sauce to a boil, then lower heat and simmer for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until it is as thick as you like it.

- This recipe should baste about 3-4 pounds of meat.
I needed a sauce to work with another chicken wing recipe that I wanted for Super Bowl. This one sounded just right. I will admit that I didn't follow it exact, but I feel the end results would have been the same. I used dried onions instead of fresh, left out the oil and mixed everything at once. Cooked it to a boil and simmered 30 minutes. I baked it with the chicken wings, covered, for an hour & a half (my preference) and then put them under the broiler for about 7 minutes, of course uncovered. They were fabulous! Very tender and tasty. My BH loved them as well. They went perfect with the other wing recipe that I found (Cuervo Gold Chicken Wings by Chef#432792). Two completely different recipes that worked great together. Thanks Sue L!!
Yum-O! I whipped this up about 15 minutes before DH put the chicken on the grill. I made a few additions and I scaled it down to 1 cup yield. I added about 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1 tbs crushed red pepper flakes...this took away from the vinegar taste and left the slightest bit of heat at the end. I can see myself using this for chicken, ribs, steaks and as a condiment all summer long. Thanks Sue for your great recipe!
Sue, this was amazing sauce! I used it on my BBQ chicken tonight. everyone just raved over it. DH was licking his plate clean, and gave it 2 thumbs up with a big smile. I love cooking recipes with beer. I will be making my ribs with this sauce this weekend, can't wait. This is another winner Sue, thanks so much for posting, everyone should try this, it is delicious!....Kitten :)
