Steps To Make Gordon Ramsay’s Barbeque Sauce

1. Caramelizing

Drizzle a little olive oil on a pre-heated pan. Add finely chopped three cloves of garlic and onion. Sauté them, add one teaspoon of brown sugar for caramelizing the sauce. Simultaneously, add a splash of water and a teaspoon of smoked paprika for a unique smokiness in the sauce. Blend it nicely and let it soak the water.

2. Steaming

Simmer the flame for 5-10 minutes and bring it to a proper boil. The drill is to cook the spices well, not to burn them. The time for boiling can completely depend on the consistency you require. I don’t want it to be either soggy or thicker. So, I blanched it for only 5 minutes. Here I am ready to gobble Gordon Ramsay’s Smokey barbeque sauce!
