Dr Pepper Barbecue Sauce

Ingredients

Main Course
  • 1 cup minced onion
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups Dr Pepper
  • 1 can of crushed tomatoes, about 15 ounces
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon cayenne
  • Salt to taste

*Ras El Hanout Spice Mix:
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
Directions
  • Heat the vegetable oil in a pot over medium-high heat. Add the onions and sauté for 4-5 minutes, stirring often.
  • When the onions are just beginning to brown, add the remaining ingredients and stir well to combine. Simmer for 30 minutes.
  • Pour the sauce into a blender or food processor and purée it until it is smooth. (Note that if you are using a blender, either work in batches, filling the blender no more than a third of the way at a time with the hot sauce, or slowly add the sauce while the blender is running on low speed.)
  • Put the sauce into a saucepan, bring to a simmer and continue to simmer, uncovered, for 1-2 hours. The sauce will store for several weeks in the fridge.
