Recipe by True Texas
From a little cookbook put out by the FFA/HERO. I love this cookbook it's full of great recipes. Recipe originally called for 3 cups of water, but I tried that and it is too thin, so I've revised the measurements to 2 cups.

- 1⁄2 cup catsup
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice

- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
