This tomato-based sauce has a sweet yet tangy flavor from the bourbon. This is a great barbecue sauce for just about anything but is particularly good on beef, poultry, and pork. I also recommend using this on pork ribs.
- 3/4 cup/180 mL ketchup
- 1/2 cup/120 mL maple syrup
- 1/4 cup/60 mL bourbon
- 2 tablespoons/30 mL vegetable oil
- 2 tablespoon/30 mL cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon/15 mL Dijon-style mustard
- 1-2 cloves garlic (minced)
- 1/4 teaspoon/1.25 mL salt
- 1/4 teaspoon/1.25 mL black pepper
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.
Heat oil in a saucepan. Add garlic and cook for 15 to 20 seconds until it becomes fragrant.
Add ketchup and maple syrup, cider vinegar, and bourbon. Simmer over low heat for 4 to 5 minutes, stirring often.
Add Dijon mustard, salt, and black pepper. Simmer for 3 to 4 more minutes. Remove from heat and let the sauce cool for 5 to 10 minutes before using. Use sauce as a baste while meat is on the grill or serve on the side once grilled meat is plated.
If you are making this sauce a day ahead of time, follow the above instructions, but allow the sauce to cool for 20 to 30 minutes. Place into an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week after preparation.
