This is a recipe that my mother made and I now make for my family, a 3 generation family favorite. I added the brown sugar and hot sauce. The whole recipe is estimated as I do not measure when I make this dish and depending on how much time I have I may turn up the oven for the first 20 minutes of baking. I add the water last so I can adjust the sauce to the desired consistency. I also usually double the recipe. My family likes to dip garlic bread in the sauce.
