Yield: 4 Cups
|½ large||Onion, minced|
|4 eaches||Cloves garlic, minced|
|¼ cup||Worcestershire sauce|
|½ cup||Packed brown sugar|
|½ teaspoon||Black pepper|
|¼ cup||Tomato paste|
|2||To 3 tb liquid smoke|
|⅓ teaspoon||Hot sauce, or to taste|
Combine onion, garlic and whiskey in a 3-quart saucepan. Saute until onion and garlic are translucent, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and light mixture; flame for 20 seconds. Add all remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil, then turn down mixture to a medium simmer. Simmer 20 minutes, stirring constantly. Run sauce through a medium strainer to remove onion and garlic bits if you prefer a smoother sauce.
Make 4 cups.
Note: This sauce gets better with age. If time permits, keep it in the refrigerator a day or so to develop a deeper, richer taste.
