These works fairly well for me, particularly the second one.For Beef
1 cup apple cider
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1 to 2 Tbsp. Maggi Seasoning (or Kikkoman Soy Sauce)
1 Tbsp. Louisiana Hot Sauce (cayenne)or
1 Tbsp. Jalapeno Hot Sauce (green)
If desired, add up to 1/2 cup of your favorite oil.For Beef or Pork
3/4 cup apple cider
3/4 cup JD or Bourbon
1/2 cup Sprite (or Coke)
1 Tbsp. Louisiana Hot Sauce (cayenne)*
1/4 tsp. Peychaud's Bitters (or Angostura)
If desired, add up to 1/2 cup of your favorite oil.
* I only use red cayenne pepper hot sauce in this one.
If using Tabasco, reduce to 1 1/2 teaspoons.
I use only Frank's, or Louisiana Brand, or Crystal, and Tabasco.
They are made from aged peppers, vinegar, water, and salt, and
only contain trace amounts of preservatives.
I find that the guar gum, xanthan gum, modified food starch and such
detract from the overall flavor of the sauce, and thus, the recipe it's
Hope this will work for you too!...
