Due to the onset of the OPPRESSIVE heat here in Murphy’s this week, I decided to post a BBQ recipe. Because lets face it who wants to heat up the house any more making dinner? So here is a Blueberry Balsamic Steak Sauce recipe. Or omit the garlic and onions and use the sauce with ice cream!
2 tsp. Hojiblanca Extra Virgin Olive Oil
4 cloves garlic, finely minced
1/2 red sweet onion, finely diced
3/4 cup Wild blueberry Balsamic Vinegar
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup molasses
4 cups fresh blueberries
Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and onion and cook, stirring often, until soft. Add remaining ingredients and stir until combined. Increase heat and bring mixture to a low boil, cook about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 25 minutes. If reducing too quickly, turn the heat down or off.
Remove cover. Using the back of a wooden spoon, mash blueberries against the side of the pan to release juices. Increase heat to medium and cook until sauce reaches your preferred thickness, 6 to 8 minutes. Strain if desired and serve with steak.
