Melt the butter on low heat, preferably in a double boiler, or, paying close attention, stirring regularly in a pot. Stir in the flour, incorporating it into the butter thoroughly until smooth. Slowly add the milk, stirring constantly. Cook on low-medium heat, stirring regularly, until it reaches a silky, creamy consistency. Whisk in the salt, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, cayenne, nutmeg and cloves. Cook for 5 minutes. Whisk in the vinegar, adding slowly. Cook for another 5 minutes, whisking often.
This recipe is not difficult, the key is to maintain low heat and pay close attention. Use the sauce to top chicken breast, fish, steak, omelets, vegetables, etc.!
