      Very good. I only used one tablespoon of oil to cook the onions and I added some red pepper flakes - because we like a little spicier, and simmered for 25 min. Also I only had Red Wine vinegar. Next time might add a bit of garlic, but overall this turned out really, really well. This sauce is the perfect consistency for me, and is wonderful just the way it is - but can well be adapted to any taste.

      Loved it made as directed, although after reading Chef Sandra B's review, substituting apple cider vinegar and simmering at least 1/2 hour sounds worth a try. What's so great about this recipe is that it's good as is -- or as a base for whatever your tastes desire! Thanks, Pattikay! Made for Aussie New Zealand Recipe Swap #16.

      Very simple, very tasty, very fast. Can use 1 c ketchup instead of 1 c tomato sauce, although this will make it a bit sweeter. Best with apple cider vinegar and simmered for at leat 1/2 hr. Can adjust spiciness with either chili powder or hot sauce, but I thought it was perfect! I like flavor, not too spicy.
