My Favorite Sauce Recipe

New here, so I thought I would share my favorite sauce recipe.  This goes over huge any time I make ribs or chicken.

It's got a little bite to it, but it's also got some sweetness and complexity thanks to the surprise ingredients.

Give it a try and let me know how you like it.  If your family and friends are anything like mine, this will become your stand-by BBQ sauce.

The Czar's Favorite Sauce:

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/4 cup minced onion

2 cloves garlic crushed

1 Can Dr Pepper (not sugar free!)

1 Heaping Tablespoon instant espresso powder

4 Tablespoons (packed) brown sugar

1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce

3 Tablespoons honey

1 8-ounce can tomato sauce

1 6-ounce can tomato paste

2 tablespoons vinegar

1 teaspoon dry mustard

1 teaspoon cayenne (+/- to taste)

1 teaspoon chipotle powder (+/- to taste)

fresh ground pepper to taste

Preparation:

In heavy saucepan, Cook minced onion and garlic in olive oil until onions turns opaque.

Add Dr Pepper and slowly bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until reduced by half (about 15 minutes). Add all remaining ingredients  - stirring until sugar and instant coffee is dissolved. Simmer until flavors blend and sauce thickens slightly, stirring occasionally.  Turn heat to low and allow to sauce to sit on low at least an hour.

 Makes about 1 1/2 cups of barbecue sauce.

Enjoy!

Welcome aboard.  What a great way to intro yourself by sharing a recipe.  I haven't settled on any one sauce recipe yet but this definitely looks like something I should try.

Wow,

Dr. Pepper and Espresso!  Your recipe is almost identical to my standard sauce.  Then you go and throw Dr. Pepper and Espresso in it!  I know people that will take a couple of  Dr. Peppers and cook them down real slow until it's almost a syrup then add it to your sauce.  I'll have to give this a try,

Thanks for posting and welcome to the forum
