The calendar says that it is fall, and my brain knows that it is fall, but my stomach says it’s not in the mood for fall foods. While everyone else is preparing holiday recipes, I just can’t seem to get in the mood. It’s no secret that I do not like turkey so maybe that has something to do with it…..but I was craving ribs and decided to create a Cabernet Barbecue Sauce to go on top…..

Wow, they turned out even better than I expected! The Cabernet Barbecue Sauce is tangy, slightly sweet, and pairs perfectly with pork ribs and steaks. I know this because I tried it out on a NY strip last night. 😉 If you do not have a Cabernet Savignon on hand do not panic, I’m sure this sauce would be just as delicious with a Merlot!

This sauce is super easy to make so it’s perfect for last minute dinner decisions. 🙂

How to make Cabernet Barbecue Sauce:

Pour all ingredients into a medium sized sauce pan, and bring to a boil.

Reduce heat and simmer for 30 – 40 minutes, until reduced by about half.

Serve immediately, or store in a sealed container in the refrigerator.

The longer you cook the sauce, the thicker it will become. It is also thicker when cold than it is when it is hot, funny how that works out. 😉
