Magpie's Barbeque Sauce

Rated as 4.4 out of 5 Stars

"This home-cooked barbeque sauce is especially great on pork or venison. This recipe makes plenty so you'll always have some when you need it. Use this to baste meats only during the last 15 minutes of cooking. Overcooking will give the herbs and spices a bitter taste."

Pretty good recipe! Too much vinegar though. I doubled the recipe (minus more vinegar) to thin out the vinegar, liked that better! Otherwise very nice with the ginger, soy sauce and seasonings. ...
