Honey Barbecue Sauce

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by PalatablePastime

Try this on baby back ribs or grilled chicken. The beer in it gives a great flavor- reminds me of my dad's cooking. His favorite thing to Q was always pork steaks, but I think that was a St. Louis tradition. He always preferred shoulder blade steaks over sliced pork butt, but my mom differed with him on that opinion. I liked it either way.

I needed a sauce to work with another chicken wing recipe that I wanted for Super Bowl. This one sounded just right. I will admit that I didn't follow it exact, but I feel the end results would have been the same. I used dried onions instead of fresh, left out the oil and mixed everything at once. Cooked it to a boil and simmered 30 minutes. I baked it with the chicken wings, covered, for an hour & a half (my preference) and then put them under the broiler for about 7 minutes, of course uncovered. They were fabulous! Very tender and tasty. My BH loved them as well. They went perfect with the other wing recipe that I found (Cuervo Gold Chicken Wings by Chef#432792). Two completely different recipes that worked great together. Thanks Sue L!!
