Pulled Beef with our Kentucky Bourbon BBQ Sauce (In Instant Pot or Slow Cooker)

IMG_6451

Bob said they don’t called it pulled when it’s beef, but that’s what it is, so that’s what I’m calling it. We made it in our Instant Pot, but a crock pot would work just as well.

Prep: We cooked the beef in a tiny bit of water, removed the water when the meat was cooked. Then Bob shredded the meat and it was returned to the cooker with my Kentucky Bourbon BBQ sauce. SOOOOOOOO good!

I think I’m going to keep bugging you until every single one of you has made this BBQ sauce. You do NOT have to use the expensive bourbon. I’ve used the outrageously priced bourbon, as well as Jim Beam, and nobody knew the difference.

Yield: Approximately 2 cups. Keeps well in the refrigerator, so feel free to make it ahead.

INGREDIENTS:
1 cup ketchup
1 TBSP tomato paste
1/3 cup fine Kentucky bourbon
4 TBSP brown sugar
1/3 cup molasses
3 TBSP apple cider vinegar
2 TBSP Worcestershire sauce
1 TBSP low sodium soy sauce
1 TBSP Dijon mustard
1 ½ tsp minced onion flakes or onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
½ tsp Chipotle chili pepper
½ tsp pepper
Dash salt

PREPARATION:

In 1 ½ qt saucepan, whisk all ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer for 10-15 minutes or until it becomes a rich color and thickens up to your liking.

NOTE: ½ tsp Chipotle chili powder will make a hot sauce. If you want medium, cut Chipotle down to ¼ tsp. If you like really hot, go for ¾ tsp. Atomic? Add 1 full tsp.

KENTUCKY BOURBON CHIPOTLE BBQ SAUCE

Kentucky Bourbon Chipotle Sauce (3)

 

     I think Bob and I are both addicted to this Kentucky Bourbon BBQ Sauce.  I created this second version and it was so outrageous on our grilled chicken!  It’s also delicious on pork.  Baby back ribs?  Amazing.  We tried it on boneless ribs too.  Chicken wings?  Oh yes!  Beef or shrimp?  I can picture cold boiled shrimp and instead of traditional cocktail sauce, serving my Bourbon Chipotle BBQ sauce instead.  Why not!  This recipe is not so much tomato flavor.  I wanted other flavors instead.  The highlights are sweet and definitely spicy!  The spicy is adjustable, so don’t be afraid to give this a try.   Feel free to marinate your meat prior to cooking for additional tenderization and flavor. 

     You will simmer the sauce long enough to burn off the alcohol and will be left with an honest to goodness zesty, full-bodied bbq sauce that is perfect on nearly anything. Please make sure to scroll to the bottom of this post to see some additional photos of finished dishes using this sauce.  

Don’t forget to serve some at the table for dipping sauce.
