Memphis Magic Bbq Sauce
  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
                        R: Smoke and Spice by Cheryl and Bill
                        -- Jamison

3 Tablespoons butter 1/4 Cup minced onion 1 Cup white vinegar 1 Cup tomato sauce 1/4 Cup worcestershire sauce 2 Teaspoons sugar 1 Teaspoon salt 1/2 Teaspoon fresh ground black pepper 1/8 Teaspoon cayenne Dash tabasco sauce

In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the onions and saute for 6 to 8 minutes, or until the onions begin to turn golden. Stir in the remaining ingredients, reduce the heat to low, and cook until the mixture thickens, approximately 20 minutes. Stir frequently.

Use the sauce warm. It keeps, refrigerated, for a couple of weeks.

The center of mid-South barbecue, Memphis offers a range of sauces that take the high middle ground between Eastern and Western styles. Like this version, they are often medium-bodied mixtures, moderate in sweet, heat, and everything else except taste.
