BBQ Sauce #3 - Bourbon Orange

Another sauce many have commented favorably on. I usually substitute powders vs cooking the onions & garlic since the sauce can be saved longer that way.  The coriander really adds a good layer to this sauce. Enjoy!

 

BBQ Sauce #3 - Bourbon Orange 

 

Recipe By: Matt

Yield: 3 cups

 

Ingredients:

3 tablespoons olive oil - skip if using powders
- - -
1 1/2 tsp onion powder, or 1 med onion diced
1/2 tsp garlic powder, or 4 cloves diced fine
- - -
1/2 cup Maker's Mark Bourbon
1/4 cup Triple sec
1/4 cup orange juice
1 cup ketchup
1/4 cup molasses
1/4 cup cider vinegar
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 tsp ground coriander, < don't leave out
1/2-1 tsp coarse ground black pepper, to taste for heat
1/2 tsp salt

Directions:

1. If using fresh onions: Sauté onions in olive oil over medium heat for 3-5 minutes until translucent & slightly brown.  Then add the garlic and cook for 1 more minute. Reset heat to low, add bourbon and deglaze the browned bits from pan bottom.

2. Add all the ingredients and bring to a simmer cooking for 30 to 45 minutes. Let sit to cool.

3. Sauce can be put in an airtight container and stored in the refrigerator.  If fresh onion and garlic used, should only keep it for a week. 

Notes:

1 small onion = 1/3 cup chopped = 1 tsp powder
1 clove garlic = 1/8 tsp powder = 1 tsp minced

Also UPDATED to latest version.  The balance of flavors needed tweaking, so to the rescue I introduced a small amount of Triple sec.  See the recipe at the top of the thread.
