Barbecue Sauce

So here is my take on a tangy Barbecue sauce

This is a great sauce for ribs, pulled pork, chicken and just about anything else you like

 This recipe makes quite a bit so you will have some left over to store

We are going to start with 1 red bell pepper, 1 green bell pepper, 1 onion, 1 apple and 1 garlic clove

I cut up the green pepper and put into a chopper.  I’m blending this to almost a puree

Same thing goes with the red pepper

Add to a sauce pan with 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil

Peel and core your apple, add to the chopper along with your onion and garlic

Stir to combine.  Place pan of medium low heat and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally

While that is cooking let’s move on

In a large bowl add one 28 ounce can of crushed tomatoes

Next you will need 2 cups of ketchup, 1 cup of water, 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar and 1/3 cup of Worcestershire Sauce

Add these into the bowl of crushed tomatoes

Next you will need 1 cup of dark brown sugar, 1/2 cup of honey and 1/4 cup of mustard

Add into the bowl with your other ingredients

Now for some spices

1 tablespoon of smoked paprika, 1 tablespoon of chili powder and 1 teaspoon each of kosher salt, ground black pepper, garlic powder and onion powder

Using a whisk, stir all ingredients until incorporated, pour into your veggies on the stove and fold together

Bring to a boil, then lower to a simmer

Cook for 30 minutes stirring occasionally

Once done, I let it cool for a bit, then I hit it with the immersion blender to grind up any little bits that may be left.  You can also do this in a blender

This recipe yields around 2 quarts (8 cups) of sauce.  For a smoky version add 1 tablespoon of liquid smoke

We serve this on, well, anything you like barbecue sauce on!
