1 tsp. sugar
1/2 cup water
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 bay leaf
2/3 tsp. thyme
2 tablespoons peanut oil
1 cup onion, minced
1/2 tsp. salt
1-1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
1 tsp. black pepper
2-1/2 tsp. dry mustard
5 tsp. cold water

Dissolve the mustard in the cold water, then thin with some of the hot vinegar sauce. Mix the mustard into sauce. Let cool and store in the refrigerator.

Poster's Notes:
As a matter of fact, lol.... Tar Heel would be referring to North Carolina BBQ Sauce. I've had this on chicken, beef and even lamb. Trust me there is great rivalry regionally regarding BBQ sauces in the South:-) Karen in TN (where it's called TN mopping sauce. :-P )
