This basic sauce recipe is easy to double if you are feeding a crowd or just want to have some on hand in the fridge.
1. Heat the vegetable oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat until hot; reduce the heat to low and press the garlic (about 1 teaspoon) into the oil. Sauté it for about 1 minute or until it just begins to turn golden.
2. Add the ketchup, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, Creole seasoning, and mustard. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat; reduce the heat to low and simmer the sauce, partially covered to reduce spattering, for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
3. Add salt and pepper to taste. Use as directed in a recipe or transfer to a nonreactive jar or bowl, cover, and refrigerate until you are ready to use it.
