BBQ Sauce

Jamie is very particular about BBQ sauce. He knows what he likes, and he has high standards. That being said, he loves this! This is a recipe I'm really proud of. I started off by using a recipe from Ina Garten (the Barefoot Contessa), before quickly realizing that I didn't have everything she called for. I made this up out of necessity, and it turned out great! There are a lot of ingredients, but it comes together easily. We used this the first time we ever grilled ribs, and it made enough to mop the ribs a few times, and have some left over for dipping. All these measurements are approximate.

BBQ Sauce
(enough for 1 slab of baby-back ribs)

1/2 onion, chopped/minced
2 cloves of garlic, minced (I use bottled)
1/4 c oil
4-5 oz tomato paste
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup dijon
1/4 cup soy sauce
2-3 Tbsp sesame oil
2-3 Tbsp molasses
2 Tbsp liquid smoke
1 Tbsp chili powder
1/2 Tbsp cumin
1/4 Tbsp red pepper flakes
2-3 Tbsp brown sugar

-Saute the onions and garlic in the oil until softened, about 10 minutes.
-Add the rest of the ingredients & simmer on low, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes.
(We didn't have any leftover, but I imagine this would freeze really well.)
