Balsamic BBQ Sauce

We had guests in the Berkshires this weekend — our friends Jason, Maria and their son Peter and Jared, Molly and their pooch Griffey.

Everyone was on target to arrive around 9pm on Friday.  We had been hoping to arrive around 7pm but our drive took over an hour longer than normal due to torrential rain and terrible traffic.  I didn’t have much time to put dinner together but I figured grilled veggies and flank steak would be quick.  To jazz up the flank steak, I decided to make this barbecue sauce to brush on the steak before grilling.

The sauce was terrific on the steak and would be wonderful on chicken as well.
