Maple Bourbon Barbecue Sauce

Whenever I find a food or an ingredient I like, the first thing I want to do, after eating it, is find a way to make it better myself. And typically, when I go to do that I end up adding bourbon to whatever recipe I am creating. This time I also added maple syrup and it was a great decision. This barbecue sauce is a definitely a little on the sweet side with just enough of a kick!

Ingredients

  • 1/4 Cup butter
  • 1/4 Cup peanut oil
  • 1/2 Teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 Cup good-quality bourbon
  • Juice of 1 1/2 lemons
  • One 15-ounce can tomato sauce
  • Half 6-ounce can tomato paste
  • 1/4 Cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 Cup molasses
  • 3/4 Cups medium amber maple syrup
  • 2 Tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 Teaspoon sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon cayenne

Directions

Heat the butter and oil in large saucepan over medium heat. Once the butter has melted, add the onion powder and simmer for 1-2 minutes. Remove from the heat and add the bourbon. Boil down the mixture for 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium-low.

Add the remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly. Simmer, stirring occasionally for 15-20 minutes. (During this time, feel free to taste the sauce and adjust it to your preference by adding more molasses, maple syrup, or sugar for sweetness or soy sauce for saltiness.)
