BBQ Sauce in the middle of Winter, Rachael?!
Yep. I think I’m longing for summer… or at least sun. Winter is definitely the grey season in Seattle. It’s the time of year where it actually is exactly how everyone imagines it: drizzly, cold, and sunless. But, while the weather is less than ideal, spirits couldn’t be higher in this city. Why? 2 words: Seattle Seahawks. If you follow me on Twitter, you’ve probably noticed that a very good chunk of my tweets are about the Seahawks. The big NFC championship game is this weekend (I’ll be there!), and you know you want to watch with some BBQ chicken wings or maybe sliders topped with BBQ sauce? (Or maybe the pizza that I’m posting tomorrow using this sauce? Yeah, pizza. It’s amazing. Get excited!)
Making your own BBQ sauce basically entails throwing a bunch of stuff into a pot and letting it simmer. Seriously, that’s it. It couldn’t be simpler. So why is this particular BBQ sauce different that all the others out there? Because it is perfectly sweet, tangy, spicy, and even umami. This unique BBQ sauce contains hoisin and soy sauce for a truly unique taste. It’s better than any recipe or store-bought that I’ve tried!
What would you put this BBQ Sauce on?
P.S.- One time I made this BBQ sauce with cola and it was delicious.
