Instead of using garlic powder, I used fresh minced garlic. I sauteed the onion and garlic in a little butter before adding the remaining ingredients. This was a nice sauce but it seems to be missing something and even after simmering, it was a little thin........VERY easy to make.


This was a easy and great tasting recipe. I actually made ribs with it. I just made this sauce and applied it to the ribs, wrapped them in foil and baked 300 for 2 1/2 hours. Then took the extra sauce over to my friend's house and put them on the bbq and put on the extra sauce. They came off the grill and dinner wasn't quite ready and the ribs were gone before the rest of the meal was on the table. There were bones everywhere and everyone wanted this recipe. I hadn't brought the recipe but told them where they could find it. It was spicy but the kids ate them without any problems.


YUM!!! I was feeling lazy when I made this so I dumped it all in the crock pot (minus the tomato sauce and onions); threw in 2 frozen boneless, skinless chicken breasts and cooked on low for about 6 hours. Very good! Sauce did not penetrate chicken much but there was a lot of flavor in sauce and chicken was tender. I'll make again.
