Cherry Barbecue Sauce


Cherry Barbecue SauceMy dad requested pulled pork for his birthday dinner. Miss F and I loaded up the car with the bread machine (for brioche buns), my crockpot, a pork shoulder and our swim suits to spend the birthday with Grandad. I made this barbecue sauce the day before, it was inspired by Confections of a Foodie Bride, but I cannot stand store bought barbecue sauce. The only sauce I have ever found even remotely tolerable is McCutcheon's, but I have only ever seen it in Maryland.  I have seen McCutcheon's jellies here in Texas, but the barbecue sauce remains elusive.  This sauce works perfectly on Dr. Pepper pulled pork.  It may not be the fanciest of birthday dinners, but it sure was tasty.
Cherry Barbecue Sauce

¾ cup ketchup
½ cup apple cider vinegar
½ cup water
20 cherries, pitted and cut into eighths
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon soy sauce
½ to 1 teaspoon Sriracha
1 tablespoon minced onion

In a small sauce pan combine ketchup, vinegar, water, cherries, sugar, Worcestershire, mustard, soy sauce, Sriracha and onion. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low. Simmer uncovered for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve.

Cherries with meat I think taste great. But I usually finish them alone.. :)
