This sauce goes great with ribs, chicken, or pulled pork. For more heat, add more cayenne pepper. For more thickness, add more cornstarch. For more tang, add more vinegar.

This recipe lives up to it's title. It is spicy sweet and tangy. It is easy to make and very good. I halved the recipe as I only had a small amount of cooked chicken breast to use up and mixed this sauce in with to make chicken barbecue for dinner. I think the recipe needs some Worcestershire but that is entirely my personal preference. I will be making this again. Thanks! Read More

Delicious! Made it to put on chicken and ended up putting it on everything on our plates. Can't comment on the cayenne pepper - we only used a sprinkle and it was enough to give some heat. Read More

I used this in pulled pork and loved the tanginess of the sauce. I didn't add any of the white sugar and only half of the cayenne. Read More
