This recipe was given to me by a former cook in the school system. I have given this recipe many times since receiving it. My kids love it! Instead of pork, you can use leftover beef, chicken or even turkey - I have!

I used butter and cut down on the onion. Otherwise I followed the ingredients to a T at first. I made the sauce completely before adding the meat. When I tasted the completed sauce it just didn't work for me. It was overly tangy from the white vinegar. At this point I added a little more sugar and worchestershire sauce and finally some liquid smoke to give it more of a barbecue flavor. I thought the flour was a little strange. My son enjoyed this and had seconds so this gets 4 stars. Read More

If you like ketchup you will love these. I found that they had no other flavor than that. I added a whole bottle of store bough BBQ sauce and then served these. Sorry but not a hit in our home. Read More

This recipe had way too much sauce. If I make it again (which I don't plan to) I would half the sauce and double the amount of pork. Read More
