From Newsday's Parents & Children, June/2006 from Steven Raichlen's "Raichlen on Ribs" cookbook. Sounds interesting and delicious but haven't tried it yet. Guessed yield and time to make!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine tomato sauce, molasses, vinegar, Worsestershire sauce, brown sugar, mustard, Tobasco, liquid smoke, vanilla extract and 1/4 teaspoons each of salt and pepper in a non-reactive saucepan and slowly bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  2. Reduce heat to medium and let sauce simmer gently until dark, thick, richly flavored and slightly reduced, 6-10 minutes.
  3. Taste for seasoning, adding more liquid smoke, salt and pepper as needed.
  4. Let sauce cool to room temperature before serving. Keep in a well sealed container in refrigerator for up to several weeks. Makes enough for 4 lbs. ribs.
