Bourbon BBQ Sauce
« on: December 11, 2016, 06:10:18 PM »
I swiped this from my Allrecipies account but it is a good one.

Bourbon BBQ Sauce:

1/2 Onion, minced
3/4 C Bourbon - don't use your best stuff as you won't be able to tell in the resulting sauce....just make it drinkable.  :o
1/2 Tbs Salt
1/4 C Tomato Paste
2 Tbs Liquid Smoke
1/2 C brown sugar
4 cloves garlic, minced
2C ketchup
1/3 C apple cider vinegar
1/4 C worchestershire sauce
1/3 t hot pepper sauce

In a large pan over medium heat, combine the onion, garlic, and Bourbon. Simmer for 10 minutes, or until onion is translucent. Mix in the ground black pepper, salt, ketchup, tomato paste, vinegar, liquid smoke, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, and hot pepper sauce.

Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for 20 minutes. I ran the sauce through a blender so it would be smooth.

This is a nice sauce with a great bourbon flavor that doesn't overpower.
