Sweet, but with just the right amount of a kick to it, this sauce is a pretty terrific way to zip up your cocktail meatballs, ribs, chicken, or pulled pork.
Here’s the thing, though…
I started out with my own home made Barbecue Sauce and Pepper Relish to make my version. The recipes are at the links above, and, if you make your own, I think you’ll be pleased; but, feel free to use your fave barbecue sauce and pepper relish from
the store, too. There is nothing at all wrong with going that option!
•24 oz Barbecue Sauce
•8 oz Pepper Relish
•6 oz pineapple juice
•1 tbsp Sherry Peppers Sauce*
*No Sherry Peppers Sauce? No Problem! Simply add a bit of decent sherry (none of that “cooking” stuff) and a dash or three of your fave hot sauce, to taste.
Stir all of the ingredients together in a medium pot over medium-low heat.
Cook, stirring often, for about 90 minutes, until the sauce has thickened and the color a deeper, richer red.
That’s all there is to it!
Great sauce, as I said, for ribs, but do try it out on your next batch of cocktail meatballs or sausages.
