♥ Beer And Molasses Barbecue Sauce

This sauce is our grilling staple, all year round. We like to try other barbecue sauce recipes, but we keep coming back to this one. We always have a Mason jar of this barbecue sauce in the back of our fridge, at the ready for quick meals.

We love this sauce on grilled or baked tofu and tempeh, as a dipping sauce for chick’n tenders, in baked beans and it makes a great condiment for burgers. And, of course, it’s the star ingredient in beer can chick’n.

Beer And Molasses Barbecue Sauce


2 12-ounce bottles of mild chili sauce

2 to 4 Tablespoons Sriracha hot chili sauce

1 Tablespoon Louisiana Hot Sauce

4 Tablespoons coarse ground Dijon mustard

Juice of one lemon (about 3 Tablespoons)

1 12-ounce jar of molasses

1 12-ounce can (or bottle) of beer

4 Tablespoons chili powder

Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan.  Bring to a boil, then simmer until reduced by 1/3 the original volume. Stir often.

Let cool and transfer to a clean jar with a tight-fitting lid. Store in the refrigerator.

  6. Can you taste the beer at all in it? I’m not a fan of beer, but this sounds really good and I definitely want to make it. I know Mike would love it. 🙂
