My First Sauce done on the Grill

I've been watching a bunch of Bobby Flay reruns on Bar B Que. He likes to put some kind of sauce on almost everything he does. So I tried it. My girls call my result fancy ketchup. I am leaning toward calling it a tangy steak sauce. I was grilling redfish when I made it, but it works good on steak too.

I melted 1/2 a stick of butter and added 1/4 cup of onions cut into small pieces. I sauteed the onions until the turned soft. I added the juice from one lime and 6 0z. of pineapple juice and one can of rotel. I also added a small scoop of brown sugar and stirred it in. I kept on cooking everything until much of the liquid was gone.

If I had stopped there, I would have had a spicy salsa topping for the fish I was grilling. By cooking it down the spice factor shot up. My boys would have eaten it and loved it, but it was a bit too spicy for me and Donna.

We then added 6 oz of tomato juice and I liquified it with a blender. It came out looking like ketchup but with a chili sauce flavor. Just the right amount of heat. I would call it mild. Somewhat like cocktail sauce but with jalapenos instead of horseradish as the spice.
