Peach Bourbon Barbecue Pan Sauce Recipe

Ed Drombroski shares an old family recipe.

Peach-Bourbon Barbecue Pan Sauce

Makes 3 cups

3/4 cup ketchup
1/2 cup bourbon
1/3 cup dark brown sugar
1/3 cup cider vinegar
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup small diced sweet onion
1 teaspoon freshly minced garlic
1 1/2 cups roughly chopped peeled fresh peaches
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons molasses
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon hot sauce, plus more to taste
Kosher salt, to taste
Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
Add onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
Addgarlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
Add peaches, ketchup, bourbon, brown sugar, vinegar, honey,
molasses, mustard, Worcestershire, and hot sauce and stir to

Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer until
peaches have softened and sauce has slightly thickened, about 15
minutes, stirring occasionally.

I like to use the finished sauce with the cut up pieces. If you want your sauce to be smooth then puree sauce in a blender and process until smooth. Season with salt and additional hot sauce to taste. Place your smoked pulled pork, chicken or beef brisket in a bowl, pour sauce on top and toss. The left over sauce can be put in a jar in your fridge for up to a month.

How to: To cook the rice bring the chicken stock to a rolling boil and add the rice. reduce the heat to low and cover for 20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and let rest.

For the hog fish and squash you will need a little olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Cut the squash into rings and lightly coat them with your seasonings. The hog fish should also be lightly coated with oil and your seasonings.

Cut the peach into wedges and season very lightly with just a pinch of salt and sugar. Grill the fish, squash and peaches over medium heat for approximately 8 to 10 minutes depending on the grill.

When oil is hot place the chops in the pan and sear each side for about 2 minutes to get a nice crust on them. Transfer the chops in the same pan to the oven. Cook for approximately 10 minutes. Use a thermometer to check temperature of meat. Cook it to 145 degrees for medium. When finished pull from oven and let them rest on counter for 10 mins.
Meanwhile heat a sauté pan, add butter and melt. Add and sauté onions until translucent (about 5 minutes). Add the rosemary and stir. About a minute later pour in fig preserves and stir to soften and incorporate the flavors. Simmer for 5 mins. Shut of heat and add the butter. Stir again. Ready to serve.
Place pork chop on plate and spoon the sauce over the chops. Serve with your favorite vegetables. I like our Lee’s Farms pickled Brussels sprouts on the side. The tartness compliments the sweet sauce.
