"This sauce goes great with ribs, chicken, or pulled pork. For more heat, add more cayenne pepper. For more thickness, add more cornstarch. For more tang, add more vinegar."

Tasty. I added molasses and a bit of paprika. Delish!


Very good! Followed the recipe as directed and stored the leftovers in a mason jar. It's a nice balance of sweet with a kick.

It's A New Day

This recipe lives up to it's title. It is spicy, sweet and tangy. It is easy to make and very good. I halved the recipe as I only had a small amount of cooked chicken breast to use up and mixed this sauce in with to make chicken barbecue for dinner. I think the recipe needs some Worcestershire but that is entirely my personal preference. I will be making this again. Thanks!
