Tonight, when I was cooking dinner, I discovered I was missing something vital from my pantry…barbeque sauce. So, I decided to whip some up. Marty and I both loved it. Gabe and Joey thought it was too spicy. I guess I’ll have to make two batches next time.
Sweet and Spicy Barbecue Sauce
3/4 cup of ketchup
1 8oz can of tomato paste
1 cup of water
1/3 cup of vinegar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp of Goya Adobo
1 Tbsp black pepper
1 tsp cayenne pepper
Combine all ingredients and mix thoroughly (I used my small food processor).
Apply half of sauce to ribs 20 minutes before they are done. Return to oven.
Add remainder of sauce to ribs 5 minutes before they are finished cooking.
*Adobo can be found in most grocery stores on the Hispanic food aisle.
**Spiciness can be reduced by simply reducing or eliminating the cayenne pepper.
