Make It: Sweet and Spicy Angostura Sauce for Ribs

Sweet and Spicy Angostura Sauce for Ribs // stirandstrain.comThis post was made in partnership with The House of Angostura. Recipe and ideas are my own.

The secret to a really tasty sauce is layering flavors. With a little help from Angostura Amaro and Angostura 7 Year Rum, this rich sauce is both sweet and spicy, and the perfect companion to a plate of ribs (or dip for chicken tenders, or slathered on a hamburger, or sauce for french fries…).

½ red onion, finely diced

1 cup ketchup

1 tablespoon ancho chili powder
⅓ cup granulated sugar
¼ cup molasses
¼ cup Angostura 7 Year Rum
2 tbsp Angostura Amaro
1 tsp salt
pepper to taste

In a medium sized saucepan over medium-high heat, saute onions until soft, about 5 minutes. Add in garlic and ginger, stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add in ketchup, apple cider vinegar, ancho chili powder, sugar, molasses, rum, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for 25 minutes. When sauce has thickened and reduced, whisk in amaro. Season to taste. Sauce can be used as a glaze before cooking ribs, or as a sauce for after cooking ribs. Also great in place of BBQ sauce!
