You’ll Need:

  • 1/4 cup of Vidalia onion – chopped or sliced
  • 2 T butter
  • 1/4 cup of white vinegar
  • 3/4 cup of ketchup
  • 1/4 cup of pancake syrup

  • In a skillet, over med/high heat, melt the butter and add the chopped onion
  • Saute the onion for about 5 minutes, or until it starts to become transparent and tender
  • Add the vinegar, ketchup
  • syrup, mustard, salt
  • and soy sauce! Stir and reduce heat to simmer
  • Let simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring frequently
  • Transfer to your food processor, and grind the sauce so the onion bits disappear into the sauce
