Louisiana BBQ Sauce

7 Sep

A couple of weeks ago I made this really great Louisiana BBQ Sauce. It’s so delicious and super easy. I use it on anything and everything. Anyways, I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I have.

This is my second time making it. I put it on vegan chicken nuggets here and it is delicious! The original recipe is actually orange. I didn’t have 2 red peppers, like the recipe calls for. Instead, I substituted what I had on hand.

1/2 a red pepper
1/2 a green pepper
1/2 a orange pepper
I still grilled the peppers.

Update:
Here are pictures when I had the right ingredients.

Louisiana BBQ Sauce

Yield: 1 1/2 cups.
Preparation time: 30 minutes to roast the peppers and 10 minutes to unite ingredients

Ingredients:

• 2 large grill roasted or smoked red bell peppers
• 3 cloves of garlic
• 2 Tbsp Chipotle Tabasco Sauce
• 2 Tbsp of molasses
• 4 Tbsp distilled vinegar
• 3 Tbsp organic ketchup
• 1 pinch sea salt

1) Grill red peppers on gas range stove top or BBQ. Turn when each side is blackened. When they are completely black, remove and let cool. Then rinse under water and peel off blackened skin. Remove the seeds and cut into pieces.

2) Turn the heat on the grill down to medium. Peel the garlic cloves and wrap them in foil. Put them on the grill for about 15 minutes or until they are tender. You can omit roasting garlic if you prefer.

3) Put the pepper and garlic in a blender and puree. You should get about 1 cup of liquid. If you have more or less pepper juice, adjust the rest of the ingredients accordingly.

4) Add the remaining ingredients and liquefy. Taste and adjust the flavors to your preferences. Add more Tabasco if you want it hotter or more syrup if you want it sweeter. Bottle it in a clean jar and refrigerate. It will lose some of its freshness after a month or so.
