This goes beyond "Dressed Up Ketchup" to add tangy, spicy highlights to ribs or other BBQ's meats.
Combine onion, garlic and bourbon in a 3 quart saucepan. saut until onion and garlic are translucent, about 10 minutes. Add remaining ingredients, bring to a boil. Simmer uncovered until reduced and thickened, about 15 to 25 minutes.
An additional splash of whiskey just prior to serving adds a pleasant odor when serving.
NOTE: While frequent sampling of the "to taste" ingredients can cause confusion and affect the outcome, the alcohol is cooked off during the saut step so it's not a factor in the final dish.
I leave the onion in good sized (3/8 inch) chunks to it stands out in the final sauce.

Baseballtep 2y agoNice taste for the slow cooked ribs
lisacrooke 3y agoMade this for a BBQ party and served it with Tri Tip and Chicken. It was awesome. It does make alot of sauce and so I gave it to guests to take home with them.
MrBroc 3y agoVery very tasty...first batch was way to sweet and I like a little more spice. So removing the molasses and adding a touch more Cheyenne made it something ill make regularly

ginahobbs 3y agoAbsolutely delicious!! I slow cooked a 4.5lb pork shoulder in the crock pot with two chopped onions and a can a Sprite for about 10 hours and then used the onions in this recipe. It's simmering with pulled pork now!

Kimrobillard 4y agoHoly cow, this is AMAZING! I added some red pepper flakes to give it some heat... Between the sweet and spicy, it Kind of reminds me of "Sweet baby Rays".
