Original recipe yields 14 cups



  1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, saute the onion and garlic for 10 to 15 minutes, or until onion is caramelized. Reduce heat to low and pour in about 1 cup of bourbon to deglaze the pan. Return saucepan to medium high heat, add the remaining bourbon, and bring to a slow boil for 5 to 10 minutes, allowing the alcohol to cook out of the bourbon.
  2. Add the honey, picante sauce, hot pepper sauce, tomato paste, tomato-vegetable juice and ground black pepper and stir well. Bring this mixture to a slow, rolling boil for about 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat, cover and cool in the refrigerator.
  3. Marinate your meat in a separate large, nonporous bowl for 3 to 4 hours, pouring sauce over meat. Boil remaining sauce for 10 minutes and serve with meat, if desired. Discard any excess marinade.

this is by far the best sauce I have ever tasted!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I never realized how much taste bourbon would add. I love this taste. my only correction to make it a little more friendly for kids would be to decrease the hot sauce. mine might have been hot because I added a hot salsa. but everyone loves this recipe.



I made the recipe exactly as posted. The sauce came out excellent. I love the taste. But it really makes a lot of it. but that is ok, becuase i really experiment alot with it. I grilled with it on the George foreman grill with steak and chicken. the taste was just ok becuase most of the sauce got burnt from the grill. then i tried baking chicken in the oven. OH MY GOD was it good. grilling with this cause is def out but baking is superb. I proably make it again this weekend however i will put it in the crockpot and put some hot sausage links in it. I think it will be really good this way.



GREAT Sauce! I wasn't sure what to do with it once I made it so I just marinated chicken breasts in the sauce overnight then cooked them at 375 for about 35 mins. and what a delicious meal! I cut the recipe in half and I still have a ton of sauce. EXCELLENT! I will definately make this often.
