I've been using this site for quite a while, but nothing ever made me want to jump out of my seat and write a review like this one did!! It's complex, sweet, savory, rich, but not overpowering. AMAZING. When I tasted it alone, I was a little taken aback. It didn't taste like I thought it would, and I was wondering if I had forgotten an ingredient. But once I tried it with the steak....MAGIC! I'm in love. I recently ran out of my raspberry jam so I used boysenberry, which happens to be a family favorite, and it was RIDICULOUSLY GOOD. Also, I didn't have any tomato sauce on hand, so I used 2 TBSP of ketchup instead. Also used plain white vinegar as well. I didn't change the recipe because it was lacking in any area, I just substituted for what I had on hand. I'm curious to know what it tastes like with strawberry jam as well. I'd also like to do something like this over salmon...perhaps apricot? Will have to look into it. :) As for some people's complaints of it being too runny, the longer you SIMMER the sauce, not boil, over low heat, the thicker it will get. Also depends on your stove. On my range, I had to set it to 3, which is about med-low to keep a nice steady simmer. If you boil it won't thicken the way it needs to, and if you keep it TOO low, it won't either. Also, when you take it off of the heat it will thicken more as it cools. Just keep that in mind. :) Thank you so much for such a great recipe!
