    The sauce is incredible- the combination of black pepper, black cardamom, and cloves went so well together. I used the amount of cloves specified and loved it, but I have the Burlap and Barrel cloves that I find to be more subtle and smooth than other cloves. I cooked my onions 45 minutes rather than 15 to get them caramelized. Served with cauliflower rice.

    Yummy. I also reduced the cloves and upped the pepper. I had extra sauce which I may use on chicken or meatloaf.

    This has a really rich flavor. The browned onions mix amazingly with the buttermilk and broth roux-based sauce for a craveable brown sauce. I halved the number of cloves because I'm not a big clove fan. This is one of those recipes from which you learn things. I think it's the buttermilk and browned onions that really bring it up a notch. Sour cream would also work nicely I think. I tried it the next night with dijon mustard instead of the spices and chicken instead of the pork chops. I'm kind of obsessed with what I can do with this sauce.

    Very good, spicy but not hot. I halved the recipe. Used Chinese black cardamom, no buttermilk, so used a one to one mix of sour cream and 2% milk. I'll cut the salt down a little in the spice blend next time just because I'm watching my salt intake.
