BBQ Sauce

Speaking again about the American cuisine, how not to mention the BBQ sauce? Not only for barbecues with friends or family but also as a suggestion, to the vegetarian like me who is always looking for sauces that can match tofu or seitan. The flavor is authentic and genuine, the barbecue sauce is sweetish, structured and strong but definitely not spicy. The recipe is not mine, I was given to me by Chef Angelo, from Minneapolis, and I am happy to post it for all the friends skeptical of American cuisine.
These are the ingredients:

1 Red Onion
1 Clove of garlic
The juice of 1/2 Orange
Cane Sugar
Ginger powder
Mustard powder
Worcestershire sauce
Tomato sauce

Cut into small/medium pieces the red onion and crushed a clove of garlic.
Squeeze half orange and set aside the juice.
On a pan, fry the garlic and onion and when well browned, add the orange juice and a teaspoon of cane sugar.
Stir over medium heat.
At this point, add a couple of teaspoons of honey and half teaspoon of ginger and mustard.
Stir and taste, the flavor should be intense and strong.
To finish, add a teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce, a few tablespoons of ketchup and 3 tablespoons of tomato sauce.
Bring the sauce to a boil and cook over low heat for another 15 minutes.
This is a tribute to American cuisine, and why not, to all vegetarians.
