Barbera-q Sauce

Make and serve this great sauce with Morovino Barbera (hence the name!).  Don’t be afraid of this recipe – it looks like a lot of ingredients, but I’ll bet you have most of these in your kitchen anyway.

1 T olive oil
2 cloves garlic, chopped
¼ t. smoked paprika
¼ t. cumin
1 C. Morovino Barbera
1 T brown sugar
½ C. Ketchup
2 t. Sriracha sauce (or other hot sauce)
1T soy sauce
1T cider vinegar
1 t. Worcestershire Sauce
½ C orange juice
2 T orange marmalade

In a saucepan over medium heat, saute garlic and smoked paprika in the olive oil until garlic turns light gold. Add wine and brown sugar and simmer until reduced by half(ish)–about 4-5 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients, except the marmalade and simmer until they start to thicken a bit. Finish by stirring in the marmalade. Let cool before using. This sauce is lightly sweet and lightly spicy. Try it with meatballs on a sourdough roll for a yummy meatball sandwich. Marinate cut up chicken overnight in ½ the sauce, remove the chicken to the grill, then use the other ½ of the sauce for basting. It’s YUMMY on pork tenderloin, or use with a pork tri-tip in the slow cooker for a pulled pork sandwich.
