For a delightful taste of the US, this sauce is a mix of sweet sugar, sour vinegar and a fruity blend of tomato sauce and spices. Best served warmed at room temperature, or warmed from the microwave, but make sure it's kept in the fridge between serves.


Makes: 1 Litre

  • 4 cups (1 litre) cider vinegar
  • 1 cup (220g) brown sugar
  • 1 1/3 cups (320ml) tomato sauce
  • 60g butter
  • 2 tablespoons hot pepper sauce (e.g. Tabasco (TM))
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons crushed chilli flakes
  • 2 teaspoons mustard powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

  1. Place all ingredients into a saucepan. Bring to a simmer over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 30 minutes longer, stirring occasionally.
  2. Remove from the stove and pour into a heatproof bowl. Cover and refrigerate the sauce for 2 days.
  3. Strain the sauce through a mesh sieve to remove the chilli flakes. Store the sauce in the refrigerator. Bring to room temperature before serving.
