Bar-B-Q Sauce Villegas

If you travel to Fiesta Texas, San Antonio’s theme park that showcases the many cultures of the Lone Star State, you’ll have the chance to dine on barbecue by Oliver Villegas, 1991 Chef of the Year. Even if you don’t make it to the popular them park, though, you can try your hand at his sauce.

2 cups minced onion
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup white vinegar
1 teaspoon dry mustard
5 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons Chinese chili oil
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon Tabasco sauce
2 bay leaves
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar

In a heavy saucepan, sauté onion in butter until translucent. Add garlic and sauté for 2 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and simmer over low heat for 1 hour, stirring often.

Makes 3 cups
