Ben Tish’s Ultimate BBQ Sauce
During the 2020, I managed to find quite a few whiskys that I enjoyed and Glen Moray was one. This summer Glen Moray is encouraging people to explore the taste and versatility of whisky for outdoor drinking and dining. To do this they have partnered up with chef, author and BBQ expert Ben Tish to create some easy to make whisky recipes, including a mouth-watering BBQ sauce using Glen Moray Elgin Classic – which is available in supermarkets throughout the UK.
To make this sauce you need:
250ml red wine vinegar
75 dark brown sugar
75ml Glen Moray Elgin Classic
250ml tomato ketchup
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 stick cinnamon
200ml beef or chicken stock (homemade or bought in, fresh is best)
Sea salt and pepper
Place a large pan over a high heat and pour in the vinegar. Bring to the boil and then turn to a simmer and reduce by half. Add the sugar, whisky, cola, ketchup, Worcester sauce and cinnamon. Bring to a simmer and then add the stock. Again, bring to the boil and then simmer for 30-40 minutes until rich and thick. Season and leave to rest for at least a couple of hours before using, and make sure to remove and discard the cinnamon stick.
I won’t lie I may have added a tad more Whisky and skipped the cinnamon, but my guests and I enjoyed it just the same.
What are you waiting for… rush out and buy a bottle of Glen Moray Whisky so you can create this at home. You can buy this from Sainsbury, Asda, Whisky Exchange or Masters Of Malt.
