One Girl, One Glass in the Kitchen: Spicy Red Wine BBQ Sauce

During IFBC, I participated in a food swap.  It was an interesting experience, and provided a learning opportunity for all involved.  I will say this…food swaps are nothing like the bottle swaps that I’m used to.

For the food swap, I wasn’t sure what to bring…until it hit me.  My Spicy Red Wine BBQ Sauce.

I know it sounds intimidating to make BBQ sauce, but it is really simple.

I love this sauce on pulled pork that I’ve cooked in the crock pot for 12 hours with some orange juice. The OJ infuses into the meat, which helps the sauce soften as well. I’ve also put this on salmon, but I thought it was weird. I’m a purist when it comes to salmon though, since I have easy access to either Alaskan salmon or, if I’m lucky, fresh out of the Columbia or Lewis River salmon. Yeah. I’m spoiled. I’ve yet to try it on some chicken, but I’m willing to try. Watch my Twitter, Facebook or Instagram for the results. 🙂

  5. This looks like it would be a great rib marinade as well!

      Mmm…ribs. *drools* I think it would! It works really well with pulled pork…why not with ribs! 🙂
