Whip Up This Sauce, And Get Grilling!
As the weather finally warms after our intense winter, we are all more than ready to get outside and get into the fresh spring air. After a day in the office, the last thing you want to do is spend your evening cooped up over the stove. That is why barbecuing is so popular- it gives you the opportunity to get outside even as you put food on the table.
Yet another reason to head to the grill is that May is National Barbecue Month! So you do not have to try a lot of lackluster recipes, we offer this delicious option for Kansas City-style barbecue sauce.
- ½ cup of unsulfured molasses
- 1 ¼ cups of red wine vinegar
- 2 cups of ketchup
- 2 cups of tomato sauce
- 1 ¼ cups of brown sugar
- 4 teaspoons of hickory liquid smoke
- 2 tablespoons of butter
- ½ teaspoon of onion powder
- ¼ teaspoon of chili powder
- ½ teaspoon of garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon of paprika
- ½ teaspoon of celery seed
- ½ teaspoon of cayenne pepper
- ¼ teaspoon of ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 1 teaspoon of pepper
Combine the molasses, wine vinegar, ketchup, tomato sauce, brown sugar, liquid smoke, and butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Once warm, season with the rest of the ingredients.
Bring to a simmer, then reduce the heat to low and let simmer for 20 minutes. If you would like your sauce thicker, you can simmer for longer. If your sauce gets too thick, it can be thinned with a little water.
To use your sauce, just brush it on your meat during the last ten minutes of cooking. Enjoy!
