For those who have purchased my cookbook, you may recognize part of this base sauce. It is the base for my version of Sloppy Joes.  I made some changes that kick up the flavor.

Base Sauce
½         cup water
¼         cup minced onion
1          tablespoon olive oil or butter
1 ½      cups catsup
½         cup brown sugar
2          tablespoons yellow mustard
2          tablespoons vinegar – I recommend balsamic
1          tsp Worcester sauce
2          tablespoons Jack Daniels Whiskey – optional but worth it! The alcohol will burn off
1          teaspoon liquid Smoke - optional

Put the onion and the water in a blender and puree.  Heat the olive oil in a sauce pan and then add the onion.  Cook until the onion is tender.
Whisk all the rest of ingredients until smooth and place in the sauce pan with the onions.  Cook over low heat 30 minutes to develop the flavors. This does not make a lot of sauce but it will keep in the refrigerator.
Try it and let me know what you think!
