This is a sauce that should really be cooked with cured meats like little smokies or sausages but I remember my mother would make it with steak strips or tips to get my fussy brother and I to eat it our red meat.
Saute the sausage, (Now I made this so many times in my life, but when people really started commenting on it was when I decided to cook the sausage until all the skins and flesh got really browned and crisp) takes like 10 minutes.
after you have crisped your meat add syrup, honey and hot sauce.
Now cook over medium high heat and stir and cook and stir and coat for about 20 minutes. sauce should be dark amber syrupy and thick
If you can keep the meat warm in electric pot or slow cooker... It's best if the syrup mix stays warm.
