Pork Glaze Recipe

This is a quick, easy and rather unhealthy sauce that I love to throw together when cooking pork. Now those of you who know my cooking skills are probably thinking, What? Naomi actually cooks her own pork sauce, instead of opening a can of something and dumping it in?

Well, normally I do open a can and dump, but for three ingredients, I figure even cooking-challenged me has the ability to make my own "from scratch" sauce. Are you ready for it?

1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup red wine vinegar

Combine over low heat, stirring until butter melts and sugar dissolves.

When I originally found this sauce, the recipe called for adding slices of thick, fully cooked ham and heating for about five minutes. But, I have since used this recipe as a glaze when I''m cooking ribs in the oven, and you might even try it on pork chops in the oven. It gives a really great tangy-sweet flavor to the pork.


  1. How would it do on meatloaf? I'm in search of a mouthwatering meatloaf recipe (easy on the salt).

    Do you think this would be as good on beef?

  2. I've never tried it on meatloaf, but if you're looking for sweet and tangy, I'd give it a try. I'd lessen the amount of butter though, as there will be enough fat from the meat as it's cooking.

    Let me know how it turns out!
