How To Make Barbeque Sauce
This is the bbq sauce most of us grew up with, a sweet, thick red ketchup based sauce that goes great with pork, beef and chicken. In Kansas City this sauce is popular on brisket and ribs.
Brush this sauce on the last few minutes of cooking or use as a dipping sauce at the table.
Ingredients (makes 5 cups)
Combine all the ingredients in a deep nonreactive saucepan, except the ketchup, in a deep nonreactive saucepan over medium heat, stirring, until simmering. Cook uncovered, until all the ingredients are dissolved, stirring about 5 minutes.
Stir in ketchup and bring to a boil. Add salt and pepper to taste. Reduce heat and simmer the sauce uncovered, stirring often, until the sauce is thick and dark, about 30-40 minutes.
Can be used warm or chilled and can be stored up to 3 months, simply cool to room temperature, transfer to an airtight jar and refrigerate.
