Bourbon Peach BBQ Sauce is rich and spicy, with a touch of sweet peaches and a hint of bourbon. It is delicious on all cuts of meat, but especially yummy served with a pork roast and Yukon gold potatoes.
Cayenne pepper gives this sauce a bit of a kick, which is punctuated by bourbon. This recipe calls for panela sugar, which really makes it stand out. If you can’t find panela sugar, you can substitute brown sugar.
Though it’s great on pork, try this sauce over chicken or with applewood smoked bacon.
