Recipe for Sauce Beautiful

Updated: Jun 8

Inspired by Princess Pamela's Soul Food Cookbook

Sauce Beautiful, named after Princess Pamela’s mother, tastes amazing on nearly everything, especially meat and fish. To balance the sweet flavors, I felt the sauce needed some chili heat; however, if you’re not tolerant to spice, feel free to leave out the smoked paprika and tabasco. I’d also recommend adding your own personal flair to this sauce — instead of peach preserves, you could try adding some savory notes with tomato jam. Either way, it’s clear that Princess Pamela was inspired by her mother on many levels, and Sauce Beautiful is the perfect homage to both women.

  • 8 tablespoons peach preserve

  • 1/4 cup water

  • Juice of 1 lemon

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika

  • 1 teaspoon tobacco

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

  • 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
