“My dearly loved mother, whose nickname is Bou, made this often when we were kids. We all still love it! The sauce goes well over mashed potatoes or rice as a side dish.”

Very easy and delicious - I boiled the sauce the night before, then added all to a crock pot and cooked all day....good stuff!!



I have to admit I thought this was not going to be something I would like. I thought it would be way too sweet for me but my kids would eat it. It was GREAT! Simple, quick and cheap. When it was done the meat was falling off the bone and the falvor was excellent. My wife and I put just a hint of tobasco on our portions to "mature" the flavor just a little and I returned to the computer to add it to my recipe box. Thanks.



Just made this dish the other was wonderful. However, I used the sauce as a marinade and basting for chicken on the grill. It was wonderful...the chicken had flavor and was really moist. Try this alternative!!!
