Asian BBQ Sauce

During a grocery shopping trip to Wegman’s with Mom last week, she convinced me to try the appetizing beef we saw in the deli. It was short ribs in Asian BBQ Sauce. It was delicious! Short ribs were something I had in my freezer and hadn’t found anything yummy to do with them. Mom peeled the label off our container so I could take it home and see if I could assemble a recipe from the ingredients listed there.

I have to say, it was pretty successful, and the short beef ribs turned out almost exactly like the ones I had at Wegmans. So, I’m sharing the recipe. I made a batch and poured most of it over a small rack of thawed short ribs and cooked it on high in my Crockpot for 3 hours. Mom did the same recipe, but she threw her ribs in frozen and cooked them all day. Her meat came all off the bones, and they ate it like pulled pork. I used the rest of the sauce in chicken kabobs a few days later (having stored the sauce in the fridge). This, too, was yummy! So, you have lots of options for using the recipe.

Asian BBQ Sauce
1 1/2 c. tomato puree
1 c. honey (or sugar)
1/2 c. soy sauce
1/2 to 1 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 c. vinegar
1/4 c. molasses
1 tsp. dried orange peel
1 tsp. ginger
2 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp. curry powder
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
2 Tbsp. corn starch
Mix all but the last two ingredients in a sauce pot and bring to a boil. Mix the cornstarch in with the lemon juice, then stir it into the boiling sauce to thicken it. Use immediately or store in the fridge.
