Chris DeBord’s Martha Stewart Doesn’t Live Here Barbeque Sauce

Only one thing better to do on a snowy day (other than skiing, but being somewhat of a fair weather skier, I'd rather wait until all the snow has fallen and it is sunny out) than relax and not work, is to spend it in the kitchen. So, today I am whipping up some pulled pork for a snowy get together with some friends. I put an eight pound Boston Butt pork cut into the crock pot this morning so it could slow cook all day. I rubbed it with some salt, brown sugar and Colman's yellow mustard and but a little lemon juice, orange juice and water into the crock. It is cooking nicely. I think I'll throw some cumin covered sweet potato fries into the oven and make come beet greens.

I'm going to Southern away the snow!

I have also been doing some work on the construction side of the house as well -- in case you were wondering.

Chris DeBord’s Martha Stewart Doesn’t Live Here Barbeque Sauce

1 cup unsalted butter

2 chopped onions – yellow or otherwise

5 garlic cloves chopped

2 ½ tablespoons Colman’s yellow mustard

2 ½ teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes

8 tablespoons dark brown sugar

3 cups ketchup

1 can tomato paste

1 cup Worcestershire sauce

4 tablespoons hot sauce – Tabasco, Crystal, Durkees, etc.

6 tablespoons molasses

4 tablespoons soy sauce

1/2 cup Bourbon (not optional)

Melt butter and add onions, cooking and stirring until translucent. Add garlic and cook a few minutes more on low heat.

Add all other ingredients except Bourbon. Drinking some at this point is fine however. Stir and simmer for 15 minutes.

Make ahead so flavors can meld. Add Bourbon about an hour prior to serving and simmer. Serve hot or cold. Can be used to cook or as an added sauce.
