Lip Smackin' BBQ Sauce

About: I run a little company that rebuilds old homes. When we aren't up to our elbows in demolition dust, I'm obsessed with recycling, crafting and cooking.

This recipe combines the sweetness of brown sugar, the zing of chipotle and a little inspiration from the garden for an 'awesome sauce' that truly rave-worthy!  This is fantastic on Pulled pork BBQ Sandwiches. We also slather it on chicken, ribs and sometimes even burgers!

Ingredients:
1/4 cup dark brown sugar,packed
1/3 cup tomato paste
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp chipotle hot sauce
1/2 tsp liquid smoke (optional)
1 tsp dried mustard
1 shallot, finely minced

Whisk together the ingredients and mop onto your choice of meat! It's Lip Smackin' Good!

    Keep refrigerated. I would say in a container it would last about 2-3 weeks. If you seal it into sterile jars, it could last a few months. It also freeze well for several months.

    wow such a long time ago lol my record for keeping it so far is 5 months in a sterilized bottle after lightly heating the sauce to kill off anything lol

    Excellent! Basted some hamburgers with this then topped with carmelized onions and mozzarella!

    You could use this with about 3 sauteed onions chopped in about 1/2" and use it as a sauce for hot dogs.

    You have no brown sugar listed in your ingredients, did you forget it because you have no ingredients to add the sweetness,? Just wondering if this was just a typing error?
