Rickard's Red Barbecue Sauce

Contributed by: A. Anderson

Impress your friends at your next backyard barbecue with a beer-based DIY sauce. Adding beer when cooking will intensify the flavours and the high temperatures when cooking will eliminate the alcohol content making it perfect for the whole family.


  • 1 tbsp (15ml) butter
  • 2 medium onions, coarsely chopped
  • 2 medium bell peppers, coarsely chopped
  • 20 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
  • 1 1/4 cups (315ml) apple cider vinegar
  • 8 oz (228g) fresh ginger, peeled, coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup (250ml) mild-flavoured molasses or honey
  • 1 cup (228g) packed brown sugar
  • 1 X 6 oz (176ml) can tomato paste
  • 1 1/2 cup hot pepper sauce
  • 1 bottle (341 ml) Rickard's Red
  • Salt and black pepper
  • Cayenne pepper, optional


Melt butter in a large heavy-duty saucepan over medium high heat just until brown, stirring constantly for about 1 minute.

Add onions, peppers and garlic. Saute until very brown, about 15 minutes.

Stir in vinegar and ginger. Bring to broil.

Add molasses, brown sugar, tomato paste and hot pepper sauce. Bring to boil.

Add beer. Simmer until sauce thickens slightly, stirring occasionally, about 1 hour. Season to taste.

The sauce will store in a refrigerated airtight container for up to three months. Serve with wings, ribs, steak or chicken. Additional beer infused- and beer pairing recipes can be found online at
