Use it as your house BBQ sauce, serve it as a dip, or rub it on anything from ribs and chicken to tofu and veggies. It’s so delicious that it might be worth planning an entire potluck around this sauce. For best results, use tomato paste in a tube. Instead of transferring the remaining tomato paste from a can into a storage container, the tube stays fresh long-term in the fridge. Plus, you can easily squeeze out only what you need. Ingredients ¼ cup balsamic vinegar ¼ cup honey ¼ cup tomato paste 3 tablespoons olive oil 4 teaspoons kosher salt 2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper Directions Whisk together all ingredients in a bowl until smooth. Baste chicken, pork, steak, burgers, or hot dogs with mixture during the last 5 minutes of grilling. Store glaze, tightly covered, in refrigerator for up to 1 week.
