Cherry Barbecue SauceSteven Raichlen
Cherry Barbecue Sauce
- 1 cup cherry cola
- 1 cup ketchup
- 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
- 1/4 cup A-1 Steak Sauce
- 1 teaspoon liquid smoke
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Step 1: Combine the ingredients in a heavy saucepan and gradually bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat slightly to obtain a gentle simmer. Simmer the sauce until reduced by a quarter—6 to 8 minutes.
Step 2: Transfer the sauce to clean jars and let cool to room temperature, then refrigerate until serving. The sauce will keep for several months.
How to use: Pretty much as you would any sauce, noting the strong affinity this sauce has for chicken, ribs, and pork.
