"struttin' Sauce" for Kansas City Sloppy Ribs

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 35 mins

My KC Sloppy Ribs recipe is posted separately. This is the homemade barbeque sauce to accompany them...or for any grilling as the sauce is versatile and MUCH better than any sauce you'd buy in the grocery store. From "Smoke and Spice" by Cheryl and Bill Jamison, a James Beard award winning book.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a saucepan, warm the oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and saute' until they are softened, about 5 minutes. Mix in the remaining ingredients, reduce the heat to low, and cook the mixture until it thickens, approximately 30 minutes. Stir frequently. If the consistency is thicker than you prefer, add a little water. Use the sauce warm or chilled. It keeps, refrigerated, for a couple of weeks.

This is a truly 10 star sauce, made it for a treat for the staff at our restaurant and literally had to fight the bosses off. Can't say how wonderful it is. Thank you Epi for posting such a wonder Linds
