I was born with a taste for pepper. Before I was two, I was eating chips and salsa. I put cayenne or crushed red pepper in everything for that extra “kick”. It’s a thrill, it gets your heart rate up. When anticipating a spicy dish, your buds water.
With that warning, here’s my spicy-sweet sauce recipe:
Kat’s Kickin’ Texas BBQ Sauce
1/2 onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, smashed
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 cups catsup
1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
2 Tablespoons grain mustard
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons cayenne
1 Tablespoon paprika
Saute onion in oil or butter, about 10 minutes.
Add smashed garlic, saute another 5 minutes.
Add brown sugar and coat sauted mixture.
Add catsup, Worcestershire, grain mustard, salt, cayenne, paprika. Simmer 10 minutes.
Puree if desired, but I did not. I like mine a chunky.
