zesty barbecue sauce

zesty bbq sauce pork spare ribs

The weather here has been very good (for November!). My children even ran around yesterday without jackets on.

So that means the trusty barbecue can still be in use. Prolonging the grill season is always a good thing. But just because it's called "barbecue" sauce, don't you worry, it works just fine in the oven too ;) tee hee. Works for any type of meat: chicken, ribs, fish, etc.

This is an easy to make sauce and so very tasty. Both my kids liked it and wanted more, which is a pretty big deal in this house.


zesty barbecue sauce
makes 2 cups of sauce
(enough for 8 servings of ribs)

1 cup beef stock
1 cup sweet red chili sauce
1/2 cup molasses
2 tbsp wine vinegar
4 tsp dijon mustard
2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp worcestershire sauce
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp each salt and pepper
2/3 cup water

Stir together all the ingredients in a saucepan to a boil. Simmer and reduce for about 20 minutes.

Brush the sauce over ribs during the last 5 minutes of cooking. Serve.

what exactly is red chili sauce?

I was cleaning up my email and realized I did not answer your question Heather. I'm sorry.

Sweet red chili sauce is quite popular in thai cuisine. You can find bottles of it in the ethnic aisle of bigger chain grocery stores.
