Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Heat oil in saucepan and add onion, garlic, and green pepper. Cook for 2 minutes. Stir in brown sugar; when dissolved, add lemon zest and juice, ketchup, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, cayenne, and tarragon. Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes.

  4. *RAW EGG WARNING
  5. Food Network Kitchens suggest caution in consuming raw and lightly-cooked eggs due to the slight risk of Salmonella or other food-borne illness. To reduce this risk, we recommend you use only fresh, properly-refrigerated, clean, grade A or AA eggs with intact shells, and avoid contact between the yolks or whites and the shell.
