Beso BBQ Sauce


This sauce comes from Eva Longoria Parker and is used at her restaurant Beso, in Las Vegas.

Made this bbq sauce as part of the "Recipe #441363". Every ingredient in this sauce tells for an interesting tasting sauce, but the 12 oz. of molasses added bitterness (though unsulphured was used). I believe by replacing the molasses with ketchup would relieve the bitterness. Next time I will try that to see results.
