The Art of Beer Cooking: Guinness BBQ Sauce

The Midwest weather is finally (finally!) turning nice and that means enjoying the outdoors. There is nothing like a good barbecue with friends, beer and backyard games. It’s just the absolute perfect combination. So while scouring the internet I found this great recipe for Guinness BBQ sauce. The Guinness adds such a great rich flavor to this sauce and is perfect for any meat on the grill. You will be sure to impress your friends at your next BBQ with this.


1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium onion, small dice
1/4 cup molasses
1 12 ounce can stout beer (Guinness)
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 can tomato puree (small can)
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon cumin

In a medium saucepan over medium heat add the olive oil and saute the onion until translucent, about 5 minutes.  Add the molasses, beer, vinegar and tomato puree then stir to combine.  Add all of the spices and allow the sauce to simmer on the stove for about 20-25 minutes until it has reduced into a thick glossy BBQ sauce.  While simmering, keep an eye on the sauce and stir occasionally.

    What does a “small can” of puree mean? Many stores are different…
