I just wanted to share a really good recipe for barbecue sauce that I made the other day that I am now obsessed with. It is tangy and slightly sweet and spicy all in a good way. We put it on chicken but it would go great on ribs, pulled pork, or as a great condiment. The recipe makes quite a bit so you could save it and use it on many recipes.
Sweet and Tangy Barbecue Sauce
Adapted from Alex Guarnaschelli
3 cups ketchup
2 cups cider vinegar
1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons dry mustard
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 cup chili powder (yes I know this sounds like a lot but it tastes great, trust me)
1 4 inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and cut into three pieces
5 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
2 lemons, cut into 1/2 inch thick slices
In a medium sauce pan, combine the ketchup, cider vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, sugars, dry mustard, Dijon mustard, and chili powder. Whisk to blend and incorporate chili powder. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Add the ginger, garlic, and lemon slices and stir to combine. Simmer for about an hour or longer, until the flavors blend. Discard the ginger pieces before serving. Enjoy!!!
