Sweet n' Spicy BBQ Sauce

I'm so excited to share this new BBQ sauce recipe. I stumbled on it today, and made it and it was a total winner! It's sweeter than the one I normally make - but I found I really liked it.

Sweet n' Spicy BBQ Sauce

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup minced onion
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2.25 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon dark molasses
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Whiskey
  • 2.5 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tablespoon ground chile powder
Preheat a medium saucepan over medium heat. Heat the vegetable oil, and add minced onion, cooking 5 minutes or until translucent. After the onion has cooked, add the tomato paste, water, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar and honey and stir until combined. Then, add in all the spices and whisk together. Turn the heat up until the mixture boils, and then turn the heat down to medium-low and let the sauce simmer for 1.5 hours - stirring randomly with the whisk to check the thickness of the sauce. When the sauce is thick enough for you - turn the burner off and move the sauce off the burner to cool.

Enjoy! :)
