Guest Post: How to Make Dr. Pepper Barbecue Sauce

One of these days I’ll get may act together and start making some of my own sauces again. In the meantime, I’ve got another guest post for you. Dr. Pepper barbecue sauce, anyone?

From chicken to veggies, a wonderful sauce will enhance the flavors of your favorite grilled foods. Finding a barbecue sauce that you love is great—but finding one you love to make is even better!

This recipe is for a unique Dr. Pepper-based sauce. This sauce is not too sweet or too tangy, but it will quickly become your go-to for a grilled meal.

Dr. Pepper Barbecue Sauce
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ⅓ cup cider vinegar
  • ½ onion
  • 2 cups Dr. Pepper
  • 15 ounces tomato sauce
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch cayenne, optional
  1. Combine brown sugar, honey, and vinegar in small bowl. Set aside.
  2. Mince onion and put in a pot with oil. Cook on medium heat until onions are soft. Do not brown them.
  3. Add the Dr. Pepper and tomato sauce to the pot.
  4. Cook until Dr. Pepper reduces a bit.
  5. Add salt and a pinch of cayenne if you want heat.
  6. Simmer for an hour to an hour and a half, depending on how thick you would like the sauce to be. Stir frequently to keep sauce from sticking to the bottom of the pot.
  7. Taste and modify seasonings often.
  8. Pour over whatever meat and veggies you choose.
You may want to blend the sauce to break down the minced onion, but this is optional.
