Smoky Balsamic Barbecue Sauce

Ingredients

 

Directions

  • Bring balsamic vinegar to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer until vinegar is reduced to 1/3 cup, about 30 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat until shimmering. Add in shallots and cook, stirring frequently, until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and crushed red pepper and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  • Stir in reduced balsamic vinegar, tomato paste, honey, brown sugar, mustard, molasses, Worcestershire, and white pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and let cook until slightly thickened, about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Season with sea salt and additional pepper to taste.
  • For smoother sauce, puree with an immersion blender, or in the jar of a regular blender, until smooth.
  • Let cool to room temperature, then transfer to an airtight container and store in refrigerator for up to a month.
