Beer and Balsamic Barbecue Sauce
This beer and balsamic vinegar sauce has a nice deep richness perfect for grilled or smoked chicken and beef.
- 1 1/2 cups ketchup
- 2/3 cup dark beer
- 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoons onion powder
- 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- cloves dash of ground (optional)
Bring all ingredients in a large saucepan to almost a boil, reduce heat to low and allow sauce to simmer for 8-10 minutes. Make sure to stir occasionally.
Once sauce has slightly thickened, remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature before using. If making ahead of time, after cooling to room temperature, place into a air tight container and place into refrigerator for up to 7 days.
