Dr. Pepper Barbecue Sauce Recipe
- 1 cup minced onion
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1 1/2 cups Dr. Pepper
- 1 can of crushed tomatoes, about 15 ounces
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 1/4 cup cider vinegar
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/2 to 1 teaspoon cayenne
- Salt to taste
1 Heat the vegetable oil in a pot over medium-high heat. Add the onions and sauté for 4-5 minutes, stirring often.
2 When the onions are just beginning to brown, add the remaining ingredients and stir well to combine. Simmer for 30 minutes.
3 Pour the sauce into a blender or food processor and purée it until it is smooth. (Note that if you are using a blender, either work in batches, filling the blender no more than a third of the way at a time with the hot sauce, or slowly add the sauce while the blender is running on low speed.)
4 Put the sauce into a saucepan, bring to a simmer and continue to simmer, uncovered, for 1-2 hours.
The sauce will store for several weeks in the fridge.

Dr.Pepper Sauce! What a brilliant thinking.
This is maybe the most important part that we all should have. An incredible thinking.
For the readers of my blog, I’m pretty sure this sauce is greatly harmonized with chicken nuggets.
Try it! Easy to make, but tastes great.
