Coca-Cola Barbecue Sauce

BBQ sauce
Not just a beverage anymore, Coca Cola lends a sweet note to this favorite recipe  

Dare to be different. That's Jim Budros's motto, and his culinary open-mindedness has won the financial advisor turned pit boss a championship at the Kansas City Royal International Barbecue Contest. What's different about his barbecue sauce is its main flavoring, an ingredient most people are more likely to drink than cook with: Coke! This isn't quite as strange as it sounds, because Coke is sweet, tart, and spicy -- the flavor profile of most great barbecue sauces. Incidentally, pot roast braised in Coca-Cola is a favorite in Venezuela.

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup Coca-Cola
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon liquid smoke
  • 3 tablespoons A.1. Steak Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon onion flakes
  • 1 teaspoon garlic flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

To prepare Combine all the ingredients in a heavy nonreactive saucepan and gradually bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat slightly to obtain a gentle simmer. Simmer the sauce until reduced by a quarter, 6 to 8 minutes. Use right away or transfer to a large jar, cover, cook to room temperature, and refrigerate. The sauce will keep for several months.

Makes 2 cups
