Barbecue Sauce II
This versatile sauce is great with chicken, pork or ribs.
- Combine the first six ingredients (the seasoning mixture) in a small bowl and set aside.
- In a 2-quart saucepan, fry the bacon until crisp. Stir in the onions, cover pan, and continue cooking until onions are dark brown, but not burned, about 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the seasoning mixture and cook about 1 minute.
- Add the stock, chili sauce, honey, pecans, orange juice, lemon juice, orange and lemon rinds and pulp, garlic, and Tabasco, stirring well. Reduce heat to low. Continue cooking about 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
- Remove orange and lemon rinds. Continue cooking and stirring about 15 minutes more to let the flavors marry. Add the butter and stir until melted. Remove from heat. Let cool about 30 minutes, then pour into a food processor or blender and process until pecans and bacon are finely chopped, about 10 to 15 seconds.
- Makes about 5 cups.
