Update on Bar-B-Que Sauce Experiment
Good Sunday Morning.
In yesterday’s post I mentioned that I had beef in the crock pot along with Coca-Cola, Ketchup and Lipton Onion Soup mix.
Well here is a report on last night’s dinner:
It was delicious. I started the crock-pot at 7:08 a.m. and ate a little after 4 p.m. (had early dinner because I was attending church last night instead of Sunday.)
Here is what I used.
1 1/2 cup Coca-Cola
1 1/2 cup Hunt’s Ketchup
2 teaspoons Lipton Onion Soup
These measurements were just made up. I had 2.15 lb’s beef and had more than enough sauce. So next time I will cut back. There was not a lot of onion flavor, so next time I will use more of it. I was afraid of getting too much onion.
The sauce was very runny so next time I need to add a thickener.
When I sampled the meet at 3 p.m., I added a heaping tablespoon of “Burger and Brat Mustard” from Tastefully Simple and the rest of the bottle of ketchup. The sauce just seemed to be missing something.
This recipe is a good sauce base, but then add whatever you feel like in the way of seasonings.
I just ate this by itself for dinner, so sides. But I did wash it down with a tall glass of Coke on the rocks. (no rum)
