Instructions
Smoky Sauce
  1. In a small saucepan, combine 2 tablespoons of light brown sugar (packed) and all ingredients.
  2. Stir constantly for one minute over medium heat until edges bubble.
  3. Immediately turn off heat. Stir again. Let stand. Sauce will thicken slightly as it cools.
  4. NOTE: Taste cooled sauce. If desired, stir in remaining 2 tablespoons of light brown sugar. If too sweet, add 1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar or lemon juice. Stir and taste again.
  5. Makes about 1/3 cup. Recipe easily doubled. Store in lidded container. Keep refrigerated.
  6. NOTE: If cooked longer than 1 minute, sauce will form a thick paste after it cools. To soften, microwave for 5 seconds to make it thin enough to drizzle.
