Not sure what to bring to that summer picnic? This recipe is tasty, easy and a sure-fire “hit.”
- 1/4 cup chopped onions
- 1 TBSP oil
- 1 cup ketchup
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup chopped celery
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 3 TBSP Worcestershire sauce
- 2 TBSP brown sugar
- 2 TBSP vinegar
- 1 1/2 tsp mustard
- 1/4 tsp salt
- pepper and dried red pepper to taste
- LARGE, QUALITY DINNER BEEF FRANKS
Heat oven to 350*
In medium wrought iron (or oven safe) pan with sides, sauté onion and celery in oil until translucent.
Add all other ingredients except for franks.
Bring mixture to a boil, then simmer on low for about 30 minutes.
Slice each frank diagonally about 1/3 way through in a few places.
Snuggle franks into sauce and bake in oven for about 30 mins.
Serve right in pan with spoon for ladling extra sauce on top.. OR place franks on a bed of sautéed onions and peppers! YUM!
(Don’t forget the buns!)
