Which in my case roughly translates to "dump all the hot sauce in it!"
Step 1: Ingredients:
- 3/4 cup ketchup
- 1/4 cup molasses (I used slightly less)
- 3-4 tablespoons of water
- 1 tablespoon worcestershire
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 tablespoon chili powder
- 1/2 tablespoon hot sauce
- 1 teaspoon liquid smoke
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Step 2: Measure it out and mix!
You can do a quick taste test before cooking to see if it's working for you.
(Pro tip for molasses: to avoid fighting with it, spray your measuring cup with the teeniest bit of cooking spray to help it slide out.)
Step 3: Cooking the sauce
Bring the sauce up to a boil and then down to a simmer. Simmer away for 5-10 minutes or so - you just want to take it until it's thick enough for you.
After it's done, turn off the heat and let it cool slightly before pouring it into your container of choice. Store it in the fridge - it should be good for a week or so!
