Smoky Bacon Bourbon Sauce

Smoky, creamy, & delicious, this sauce rocks & it’ll make any steak, burger, or sandwich you put it on rock too.

  • 2 thick slices of Bacon (we used Berkshire Bacon)
  • ½ cup Onion, finely diced
  • 2 drops Liquid Smoke
  • ¼ tsp Chipotle Chile Powder
  • 2 tbsp Tomato Paste
  • ½ tsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • ¼ cup Bourbon (we used Bulleit)
  • ¼ tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Pinch of Salt



Very finely dice the bacon.


Add the bacon pieces to a dry (not oiled) frying pan or skillet over medium heat. Render fat out of the pieces until they’re crispy.


Add the onions, liquid smoke, and chipotle powder to the remaining bacon & fat in the pan. Reduce the heat to medium low and let the onions stew, stirring occasionally, for about ten minutes.


Stir in the tomato paste, bourbon, vinegar, salt & Worcestershire sauce. Simmer for about 1 minute.


Move the contents of the pan to a blender and puree them.


Serve with steak, on a burger, or on other dishes.
