Sweet-Hot Pecan Sauce

This will be your new go-to sauce for everything.  This recipe is from a Southern Living cookbook, and it was originally served with fish fillets; however, when I made it over the weekend, it was fantastic over the green beans with goat cheese and bacon.  It was also delicious with the grilled doves we had that night.  You just can't go wrong serving this sauce.  Plus, you can make it ahead of time, and store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.  A new favorite!

Sweet-Hot Pecan Sauce

1/4 cup butter
1/4 chopped red onion
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 cup pecan pieces, chopped
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
2 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp hot sauce

Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat.  Add onion, and saute 3 minutes or until tender.  Add garlic, and cook 1 minute.  Stir in pecans and next 4 ingredients.  Cook, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved.
