Roast Sauce (Aka Government Sauce)

READY IN: 2hrs 20mins
Recipe by Julesong

I got this recipe from family friend Mrs. Fenton - I'm not sure where she got it, but they've had it in their family for a very long time and it's an old long-standing tradition in their house. They always eat it with their pork roast, but it went well on lots of different meats. Very tasty!

Excellent on pot roast or even on scrambled eggs. I grew up on this sauce, my mother was Mrs. Fenton and her mother gave her the original recipe from the depression era. I was quite surprised to see this posted but so happy it's been shared with others!
