Sheila’s Raucous BBQ Sauce

Photo by: Joseph De Leo

I find barbecue sauces irresistible and I have a fondness for that sweet Texas tang, so I’ve cooked up a batch here that should blow away some baby, back ribs. It has a similar effect on barbecued chicken. This recipe is easily doubled, but I prefer to make two separate batches for better control.

Yield: Makes 3 cups

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 2 cups ketchup
  • ½ cup cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup canola oil
  • ¼ cup Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon Juice
  • 1/3 cup (packed) dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 2 dashes Tabasco sauce

Directions

1. Combine all the ingredients in a heavy saucepan. Add 1 cup water, stir well, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer until the sauce has thickened slightly and the flavors have blended, 10 to 15 minutes.

2. Pour the sauce through a fine-mesh strainer into a bowl, discarding the onion and garlic. Taste, and adjust the seasonings as needed. Use immediately, or let the sauce cool to room temperature, transfer it to a covered container, and refrigerate it for up to 1 week.
