It's sweet. It's red. It's already got ketchup in it. Is this perfect or what? Use to marinate beef, pork or chicken, or to baste hamburgers while cooking.
1 cup ketchup
1/2 small onion, finely chopped
2 tbsp mustard, (any kind)
2 tbsp cider vinegar
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp molasses
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
Stir together all the ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Simmer for 5 minutes, then remove from heat and let cool.
Combine with meat and let marinate for at least one hour before cooking (longer is OK, too). Reserve some marinade to use as a basting sauce while grilling, and as a dipping sauce to serve with the cooked meat. Makes enough for at least 2 lb. (1 kg) of meat, with some left over for dipping.
