Recipes for browning sauce include Simply Trini Cooking's, The Hungry Wolf's and Evermine Blog's recipes for the dish. These recipes differ by the types and proportions of ingredients used, including varying amounts of sugar, water and beef soup base.
The technique to make browning sauce is the same in all recipes. Start by placing sugar in a saucepan. Evermine Blog's, Simply Trini Cooking's and The Hungry Wolf's recipes call for 2 cups, 1 1/2 cups and 1/2 cups of brown sugar, respectively. Heat the sugar while stirring constantly with a wooden spoon.
As the sugar heats, it gradually melts, darkens and becomes almost black. If the pan starts to give off too much smoke, turn down the heat. Heating sugar is dangerous because it bubbles and may spill on the skin, so it is important to be careful.
Once the sugar syrup is dark enough, make Evermine Blog's sauce by carrying the pan to the sink and adding 1 cup of water, stirring constantly for one minute. To make Simply Trini Cooking's sauce, add enough water to the dark sugar syrup until it is the consistency of a light syrup. To make The Hungry Wolf's sauce, add 3 cups of water the dark sugar syrup, whisking well until the ingredients are combined. Add 1 teaspoon of beef soup base and stir well.
