Dr Pepper BBQ Sauce

Dr Pepper goes so well with meat.  I have to make my Dr Pepper and chicken in the crock pot again really soon.  I marinated ribs in Dr Pepper for 6 hours and then cooked them in the pop (yes, I'm one of those people that call it pop, not soda) in the crock pot for another 4 hours before mixing together a Dr Pepper bbq sauce and finishing them off on the grill.  Be sure to have a small bowl of the bbq sauce for dipping!

Dr Pepper BBQ Sauce

2 tbsp butter
1/4 cup onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 tbsp tomato paste
1 can (12 oz) Dr Pepper
1 tbsp raspberry vinegar
1/3 cup dark brown sugar
1 tsp salt

In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and cook the onions until translucent. Add in minced garlic and cook for another minute.  Pour in Dr Pepper.  Add in the rest of the ingredients, stir and cook over medium heat until it begins to thicken.  Brush two coats on top of your ribs or chicken (I'm going to make chicken breasts to use the leftovers on).  Cover and refrigerate the leftover sauce for up to two weeks.
