BBQ Sauce


    2 tablespoons butter
    1 small yellow onion, finely chopped (about 1 cup)
    3 cloves garlic, minced (about 1 tablespoon)
    2 cups ketchup (or our home made Tomato Sauce)
    1/3 cup molasses
    1/3 cup dark brown sugar
    1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
    2 tablespoon yellow mustard (I like pre-made mustard not the powder)
    1 Cinnamon stick
    1 tablespoon sweet paprika
    1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper or to taste

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper **
1    tablespoon chili powder **
** Optional

Molasses is not that easy to get in some parts of Asia we use Black Treacle (Same Same but different) available at most baking supply shops in Malaysia.
We have found powered mustard has a very very short shelf life in the tropics, however prepared mustard has a good shelf life and does not require refrigeration. For us a good all rounder is Heinz yellow mustard, available on the Asian supermarket shelves.



    Melt butter in medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

    Add ketchup, molasses, brown sugar, vinegar, mustard, chili powder, black pepper, and cayenne pepper and stir to combine. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer until slightly thickened, about 30 minutes, stirring frequently.

    Transfer sauce to the jar of a blender and blend until smooth. Let cool to room temperature, transfer to a jar and store in refrigerator for up to a month.
