Yesterday was one of those nights where I didn't have a clue what was for dinner until around 5pm. I decided that barbecue chicken pizza would be a great choice, and then found myself without enough BBQ sauce. This problem was solved easily when I found this recipe online after a quick google search and saw that I had all the ingredients ready to go!
However, I'm having a bit of a moral dilemma. The recipe calls for red wine vinegar, and I had some in my cabinet, (although I did not buy it and don't know where it came from), and it's followed us from Provo, UT, all the way to Cary, NC, and the recipe called for it, so I put it in there. But, are Mormons allowed to use red wine vinegar? Did I just lead my family to eternal destruction? I guess Derek and Jay didn't know it was in there, but I did, so I think they're in the clear. Does anyone else cook with red wine vinegar? Or am I just a little rebellious?
Well, if you're feeling rebellious too, here is the recipe for this wonderful BBQ sauce. It was delicious, and quite possibly the best I ever had. Sweet Baby Ray's is a thing in the past for me. Unless of course, using red wine vinegar is a sin, then of course I'll never make this again and pretend it never happened.
Recipe adapted slightly from Simply Scratch
1 1/2 cups dark brown sugar
1 1/4 cup ketchup
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 1/2 tsp ground mustard
2 tsp paprika
3/4 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl until sugar is dissolved. Then pour into a jar and store in the fridge for up to 1 week.
