Richard's simplest barbecue sauce

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 \N Medium onion, chop fine
2 tablespoons Oil
¼ cup Lemon juice
2 tablespoons Vinegar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons Brown sugar
½ cup Water
1 cup Chili sauce
1 \N Salt and pepper to taste

Brown chopped onion in oil, in a medium saucepan. Add remaining ingredients, bring to a low boil over medium-high heat, then reduce to a simmer. Simmer 20 to 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

This is a variable sauce, and works well with either molasses or maple syrup instead of brown sugar (use ¼ cup maple syrup). Also, minced chilies or green bell pepper may be sauteed along with the onion.

Sauce may be made thicker/chunkier; sauce may be made thinner. A couple of drops of liquid smoke (no more!) may be added.
