Yum! I promise this sauce will make –almost- everything better. I first tried it on fillet of pork, admittedly I went a bit overboard with the sauce on this one but once it had it’s turn in the oven it was all gooey and good.
At the time I made a double batch and froze the remainder of the sauce. Used it to baste fresh made chicken vegetable wraps… oooh sooo good!
A splash of this sauce mixed in your home made spaghetti sauce will give just that little extra and used as a base on pizza it really does the trick! So what’s keeping you?
(Can’t remember where i got this from, probably combined a couple of things but if you recognize your recipe give me a shout and I’ll give credit)
1 large onion, minced
2 garlic cloves, minced
50 ml orange juice
350 gr ketchup (yes really)
150 gr “stroop” you would use molasses I guess
1 cinnamon stick
2 star anise
1 tsp colemans mustard powder
1 tsp tabasco
10 ml worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
Sautee onion and garlic in a little oil, add juice, ketchup and stroop/molasses.
Add all spices and bring to a boil, lower the heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Stir every now and then to prevent sticking.
Take out the star anise and cinnamon stick and reserve in containers to freeze, use right away or can.
Note: I’d like to add some minced carrots to the sautee. Adding some red and green bell peppers to the mix is a nice idea as well.
