Homemade Barbecue Sauce

My husband is on a business trip to Kansas City today.  It made me think about this Kansas City-style sweet barbecue sauce.  This sauce is a Midwestern style tomato/molasses based sauce but it get its kick from Thai sweet chili sauce.  I plan to use it for some boneless country-style pork ribs, but I can think of a dozen other things to drizzle it on.  It’s sweet, sour, mildly spicy, sticky goodness.  You could also make several batches and can it in jars for a great homemade gift. Makes 2 generous cups.

  • 1 C. ketchup
  • 1 C. Mae Ploy Sweet Chili Sauce
  • 3/4 C. apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 C. dark molasses
  • 1/4 C. brown sugar
  • 1/8 C. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 C. brewed coffee
  • 2 T. ground mustard
  • 1/8 C. soy sauce

Put all the ingredients in a heavy bottomed sauce pan or Dutch oven.  Use a whisk to incorporate all the ingredients.  Bring to a boil over medium heat.  Reduce the heat to low and simmer without the lid for one hour, stirring occasionally.
