I always associate the Fourth of July with barbecue. Whether it's ribs, pulled pork or chicken a top-notch sauce is necessary to make any barbecue memorable.
This Independence Day, try your hand at a homemade honey beer barbecue sauce. This recipe is easy to make and relatively easy. You can make it in the morning and have it ready just in time for the afternoon Fourth of July party.
To make this recipe you'll need:
- 1/3 Cup Chopped Onion (chop very small or use a food processor)
- 1 Clove Garlic Minced
- 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
- 3/4 Cup Bottled Chili Sauce
- 1/2 Cup Beer (I used a stout)
- 1/4 Cup of Honey
- 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
- 2 Table Spoons Brown Sugar
- 1 Tablespoon Yellow Mustard
To start, cook the onion and garlic in hot oil, in a large saucepan, until the onions soften. Stir in chili sauce, beer, honey, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, and mustard. Bring the mix to a boil, stirring often to prevent burning. Reduce the heat, and simmer uncovered for 20 minutes, or until it is a nice consistency. Stir occasionally. The sauce will be thinner hot than when it's cooled. Once it reaches the desired consistency, pour into a container and refrigerate until you need to use it.
