READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Noo8820

If you like a sauce that is spicy but not too sweet..this is it. Great for brisket, but works well on steak,pork, chicken and burgers too.

I just made this today to use this weekend (I wanted to give it time to blend in the fridge). So far it smells and tastes great. I did only add 1/2 the chili powder (I was afraid it would be too hot). I will taste it again tomorrow and decide if it needs more heat. I did use "apple cider vinegar" (I think its sort of the same as "cider vinegar"). Either way... it tastes good. I will post an update when we use it this weekend. Thank you for posting your recipe.
