    Roger Clark's Note:

    Found this recipe in a magazine quite a few years ago. It is simple, yet very good. The apricot preserves add an interesting flavor. I use the kind sweetened with concentrated grape juice.

      I am so confused as to why people are calling their recipes "sugar Free" just because there is no plain sugar added to the recipe. If you will note in the nutritional values, the "no sugar added apricot jam" is not included. Since this recipe is listed as one serving, if you add in the "no sugar added apricot jam", the sugar grams jump from 11 to 91. And if you add the calories from the apricot jam, they jump from 93 to 253! My husband and I are doing the Belly Fat Cure and we can only have 15 grams of sugar per day. This recipe does not make a whole lot of sauce, so this "Sugar Free" recipe will actually contain too much sugar for us to use. Even if we only used 1/4 cup of this per serving, we would still be getting about 12 grams of sugar each, which pretty much maxes us out for the day. I'm sure it tastes great with all that sugar, but I'm only giving it one star because it is definitely not Sugar Free. Oh - and sweetening with concentrated grape juice? There are 39 grams of Sugar in 1/4 of concentrated grape juice. Grapes are one of the highest sugar concentrated fruits, so avoid them if you are trying to lose weight.

      Just made this to pour over beef ribs to be baked in the oven. YUM! I added a few drops of Worcestershire and 1/4 tsp of liquid smoke. I am very sugar sensitive but dh loves BBQ - this is a great alternative. TRY IT!

      This is wonderful. I also added liquid smoke and a little more jam. I may try to do this recipe with fresh apples sauted with the onions. Thanks
