"This reminds me of the sauce from a restaurant where I grow up. It's the closest replica that I've ever found. I'm making it again right now. Love it love it love it love it love it love it love it love it"

"This tasted great, I added some green pepper because I had some fresh from my garden. I placed a heaping amount of brown sugar and added 30 ounces of sauce, that was two whole cans of Red Gold tomato sauce. I let mine simmer longer so it would be hot for our cookout. Big hit!"
