Step 1: INGREDIENTS
1 cup Tomato Sauce
1 tbsp finely chopped fresh garlic
1 tbsp Mustard
3 tbsp brown Sugar
1 tbsp Soy Sauce
1 tsp Cumin powder
1 tsp paprika powder
5 tbsp Vinegar
1-2 drops of liquid smoke if available
1 cup Coca- Cola (the secret ingredient)
Salt to taste
Step 2: Mix and Slow Simmer
Mix all your ingredients in a pan and slowly simmer on a stove for about 20-30 minutes till the sauce has reduced by half and has attained a thick consistency.
Step 3: Enjoy!
Let the sauce cool down and store in a sterile container.
Apply generously while barbecuing anything and it'll elevate the taste to another level altogether!
Friendly tip- adding 2-3 tbsps of salsa to this sauce is another way of enhancing it's flavour. If you have a chunky salsa, just blitz the sauce in a mixer and you'll get a beautiful smooth consistency!
