"Big Daddy," one of our readers, generously shared this recipe with us. And it doesn't disappoint. Make bigger batches and keep in the fridge for up to 10 days. As this sauce isn't pasteurized nor canned to preserve, use what you need and keep refrigerated. Never apply used utensils to spoon the sauce, and if a piece of uncooked meat or chicken falls into the sauce, discard the sauce immediately.
