I know I have not been posting much on the forum. Quite frankly I feel rather intimidated reading most of the posts here. I am not one for being able to totally create a recipe from scratch. While at my wife's grandparent's house over the weekend I found this recipe in one of her cookbooks from Texas. I made some this morning and thought it was pretty good, so I am posting it to see what others think, and to see other's mods to it. My wife's grandmother is Spanish descent born and raised in Ozona Texas. The name of the cookbook is 'Diamonds in the Dessert' from the Ozona ladies. Well here it is....
1\2 cup butter
3 Tablespoons mustard. (wasn't sure if that was dry or prepared so I used prepared)
3 Tablespoons ketchup
3 Tablespoons brown sugar
3 Tablespoons vinegar (used apple cider vinegar)
3 Tablespoons worsty
salt, pepper, hot sauce, garlic, and celery salts (or even powder) to taste.
I also added a bit of chipotle chili powder. Was very careful about the chipotle. I didn't want it to be hot, just have a good flavor. I rather liked this sauce, although the mustard seemed to come through a bit in the end. I currently have it in the fridge to see how it reacts with that much butter in it. That was also a point I wish to ask about. What be a good substitute for the butter? foil juice maybe? Also while in the pan it was a little thinner than I like ,for sandwiches anyway, so what would be the best way to thicken it? let it simmer or add something like corn starch?
