Because it contains sugar, it burns easily and is best brushed on during the last 5 minutes or 10 minutes of cooking so that it forms a light glaze. Pass the remaining sauce at the table.
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 1⁄4 cups ketchup
- 1⁄2 cup cider vinegar
- 1⁄3 cup Worcestershire sauce
- 1⁄3 cup brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 3 drops hot red pepper sauce (I use Tabasco)
- Heat the oil in a medium saucepan, add the onion and garlic and cook gently for 10 minutes.
- Add the ketchup, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, chili powder and red pepper sauce.
- Let the mixture simmer for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until it is slightly thickened.
- Let cool, then refrigerate, tightly covered.
Great tasting sauce, although I did make a couple of changes ~ I used just 2 teaspoons of chili powder & 2 drops of the hot pepper sauce, & that provided more than enough heat for the 2 of us! I used a bit of it on grilled burgers & the rest made up a test dip for a couple of chicken fingers! Outstanding both ways, & definitely a keeper of a recipe! Thanks for posting it!
