Chef Notes:
Make-Ahead: You can make this up to 3 days ahead of time. The longer it sits the more flavors that will come out.
How to Reheat: Add the desired amount to a small size saucepot and cook over low heat until warm.
How to Store: Cover and keep in the refrigerator for up to 10 days. This will not freeze well.
You can absolutely sub out the onion and garlic powder/granules with fresh and if you chose to do so there will need to sauté them in oil at the beginning of the recipe. Blend the recipe until smooth, but do not over blend.
Substitute the onion and garlic granules with powder.
This would go excellent with pork and chicken.
