steak, unglazed


  1. Puree prunes
  2. Mix
  3. Reduce until it feels like barbecue sauce.

This recipe isn’t the result of several trials and error, just a trial. I used half a cup of sugar, but 1/4 would probably be enough. There were about 3 whole cloves, maybe a teaspoon of each other spice.

I salted and marinated steak in this sauce overnight, then grilled it and re-glazed.

We had 1 rare, 1 medium. Medium was better, though it might have been a better piece of meat to begin with. Here’s the rare:

Nothing was wasted:

The sauce is pretty potent, not quite for dipping. I’d like to try it on ribs or pork. Dad said no more store-bought BBQ sauce.
