At first I was disappointed at the very strong vinegar flavor, however, I added worcestershire, liquid smoke and garlic, marinated a chuck roast overnight and then cooked it in a crockpot for 10 hours. It made one heck of a shredded beef sandwich on a Brown and Serve roll. Excellent!

Sweet with a kick! I cut the chili powder and cayenne to 1/2 teaspoon because I was concerned it would be to spicy for the kids. I cut back on the sugar slightly but after tasting added the full amount. My sauce thickened up a lot sooner than 45 minutes.

This was really great! I followed the recipe exactly and served it on steak. Next time I will try chicken or something different, but it definitely compliments steak perfectly. It was a little bit spicier than I'd imagined it would be. That was good for me because I <3 spicy food, but my boyfriend not so much (acid reflux issues). He said it was so good he didn't want to stop eating it even though the spiceyness was a tad painful for him, haha. Thanks for the great recipe!
