Blueberry Barbecue Sauce Glazed Ribs
Um...this is an amazing, incredible, mouth watering recipe. It's got pop, pow and pizzazz. It's super tangy and pairs perfectly with rich meat (such as the ribs in the picture, or over a brisket. That would be supreme.). As a food blogger, I always hope wish and pray the pictures really convey how good a recipe is, because this blueberry bbq sauce deserves to be recreated by you, your friends and everyone out there. It's bomb.com. Try it my peaches, and see. XOXO
Makes 2 cups
1 onion, minced
4 cloves garlic, rough chop
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
2 teaspoons spicy brown mustard
1 teaspoon prepared horseradish
2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
Pinch each of pepper, allspice and cloves
1 tablespoon molasses
½ cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon rosemary, minced fine
Salt as needed
In a medium saucepan, sauté the onion and garlic in the vegetable oil. When softened, add the mustard, horseradish, blueberries, spices, molasses, brown sugar and rosemary.
Let simmer 20 minutes, stirring occasionally so it does not stick to the bottom of the pot. It should be thick and tangy when ready.
Taste and add salt as needed.
Use as a glaze on beef short ribs, pork or chicken.
For the ribs in the picture, I seasoned the ribs with salt and pepper, then grilled them for 30 minutes. Added a thick layer of the sauce and then put them under the broiler for 5 minutes. Served with more sauce on the side.
This recipe was created as part of my tribute to blueberries, and as an entry in the "Blueberries Meet Their Match" contest, sponsored by the U.S. Highbush Blueberry Council. Check them out, here. I wonder if they would like my slogan ... "Blueberries love you, too."
