Intro: Grandma's Super Easy Bourbon Barbeque Sauce
I am back with another one of my grandma's wonderful recipes! This is a Kentucky favorite! It is a very quick recipe and tastes great! Just a note: for that authentic Kentucky flavor, use a Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey like Maker's mark, Four Roses, or Wild Turkey.
Step 1: What You Will Need
What you will need:
(These measurements will make 1 cup of finished sauce. You can multiply as many times as needed. Add about 5 minutes for every time you duplicate (i.e. 2 cups=25 minutes, 3 cups=30 minutes, etc.))
1 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
2 shots of bourbon (I used Maker's)
2 large cloves garlic, finely chopped
Juice of 1/2 orange (1/8 cup)
Step 2: The "Easy" Part
As the title says, this is the easy part. After you have all your ingredients prepared, you put them all in a medium saucepan and let it simmer over medium-low heat for about 20 minutes. That's it!
Step 3: Enjoy!
Put in a pretty container (or not) and use it as you would for any other barbeque sauce! Yum!!! Couldn't get any easier right? Bask in your barbeque glory.
