Hot Spicy Barbeque Sauce

  • 3 medium sized onions, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, pressed
  • 2 paprika peppers, 1 red, 1 green, finely chopped
  • 50g butter
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons freshly ground dried chilies
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger
  • 5 tomatoes, pealed, stoned and cut into small cubes
  • 1 glass of dry red wine (I use Cotè du Rhón.)
  • salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of plain flour
  • 1/4 litre of beef stock
  • a pinch of sugar

Braze the onions, garlic and paprika peppers in the butter, then add the chili, tomatoes, ginger, red wine. Season with salt and pepper. Cook thoroughly, stirring regularly. Mix the flour and the cold beef stock and add to the chili mixture, cover and simmer for 10 minutes.

Press the mixture through a sieve, re-heat add the sugar and season with salt. Goes well with BBQ pork chops, but try it with other meats -- you will be surprised.
