1/4 cup unsalted butter

1 cup medium diced onions

2 teaspoons chili powder

2 teaspoons garlic salt

2 teaspoons paprika

3 cups ketchup

1/2 cup molasses

1/4 cup honey

1/4 cup English mustard

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce


  1. In a large pot, melt half of the butter on medium heat. Add the onions and sweat until the onions are translucent, 3 minutes. Add the chili powder, garlic salt and paprika, and saute for 2 minutes. Add the ketchup, molasses, honey, mustard, vinegar and Worcestershire sauce. Bring the sauce to a boil then reduce to a simmer and cook for 5 to 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
  2. Transfer the sauce to a blender or use an immersion blender and blitz, leaving some texture to the sauce. Fold in the remaining butter.
