Maple Barbecue Sauce

A splash of Southern Comfort gives a kick to this easy sauce. Chef Doug Mack's recipe is also great with chicken or pork.

Serves 20

Prep Time 10 min

Total Time 30 min.

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 3/4 cup reduced-sodium ketchup, (see Ingredient note)
  • 1/2 cup Southern Comfort liqueur, or apple juice
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce, or reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons hot sauce, such as
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Add onion and cook, stirring often, until softened but not browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Add ketchup, Southern Comfort (or apple juice), maple syrup, mustard, Worcestershire sauce (or soy sauce), hot sauce and garlic and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 30 minutes. Let cool for about 10 minutes. Transfer to a food processor or blender and puree until smooth. (Use caution when blending hot liquids.)
