-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 cup ketchup
1 cup water
1 medium onion -- finely chopped
1/4 cup brown sugar -- packed
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons vinegar
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper -- to 1/2

In a medium saucepan, stir together all ingredients. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat and boil gently, uncovered, for about 20 minutes or till slightly thickened and reduced to about 2 cups.

Notes : Every time Virginia M. Christie of Bloomington, Minnesota, simmers a batch of this tangy sweet sauce, she remembers her Uncle Mal. He drove the hook and ladder truck for Firehouse No. 37 in Chicago and was known for this sauce. Virginia slathers it on ribs and chicken, and uses it in sloppy Joes and as a sauce for meatballs.
