Spicy Barbecue Sauce

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Irmgard

This delicious basting sauce from Food and Drink magazine is also good as a dipping sauce. It is perfect for barbecued ribs but I am sure it would complement any other barbecued meat. It is sweet with a subtle kick to it.

I made this sauce to go over baby back ribs and we really enjoyed them! I slow roasted the ribs in the oven at 300 and cooked them for 1-1/2 hours. Thanks for the posting!
