Jane's Best Barbecue Sauce
This is my all-time favorite Barbecue sauce. It will keep almost forever and is the best on Barbecued Pork Ribs and Chicken.
Yield: approximately 1 ½ cups
2 Tablespoons bacon drippings or butter
1 medium sized onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
12-ounce bottle ketchup
6 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 Tablespoons cider vinegar
¼ cup dry white wine
1 teaspoons dark brown sugar, packed
1 to 2 Tablespoons pure ground hot red chile, or to taste
1 to 2 Tablespoons pure ground mild red chile or to taste
¼ teaspoon pequin or cayenne pepper
¾ teaspoon ground cumin
¼ teaspoon ground coriander seed
1 teaspoon liquid smoke
- Melt the bacon drippings in a two quart saucepan over medium heat, then add the onion and garlic and sauté until the onion is transparent.
- Add the remaining ingredients through the liquid smoke, reduce heat to low, and simmer, uncovered for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Set the sauce aside until you are ready to use it.
