Tomato-Based Barbecue Sauce

Ingredients

  • 1 shallot, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp mustard powder
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 1/2 cups (375 ml) tomato purée
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) molasses
  • 1/4 cup (55 g) brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) Worcestershire sauce

Preparation

  1. In a small pot over medium heat, sauté the shallot and garlic in the butter until tender. Add the spices and cook for 1 minute, stirring. Add the remaining ingredients. Cover with a splatter guard and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. In a blender, purée the sauce until smooth. Return to the pot and cook a further 10 minutes, with the splatter guard, until the sauce thickens, stirring occasionally. The tomato-based barbecue sauce will keep for 10 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
