Smoky Barbecue Sauce
Swapping strained tomatoes for the ketchup traditionally used in homemade barbecue sauce reduces the sugar in the final product. Be sure to cover the sauce while it cooks, otherwise the thick mixture will spatter all over the stove. The sauce will keep for up to a week in the refrigerator and can be used in place of any prepared sauce.
Ingredient Set Name:
1. Combine tomatoes, vinegar, brown sugar, garlic powder, molasses, mustard, onion powder, paprika, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, pepper, and salt in medium saucepan, and bring to a simmer over medium-low heat. Cover, and simmer 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, uncover, and cool.
2. Strain sauce through fine-meshed strainer, and discard solids. Stir in liquid smoke, if using.
