715 Pork Ribs Glaze
By Chef Michael Beard

We sell a lot of barbecue sauces and glazes at The Kansas City BBQ Store. But we understand that there are times when a store-bought sauce just won’t do and you need something homemade. This recipe is for a glaze sometimes served on ribs at Restaurant 715 in Lawrence. It’s easy to make, but don’t be deceived, the result is a rich and complex flavor that’s perfect on pork.

2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp butter
1 cup shallots, diced
½ cup garlic, diced
1 cup tomato paste
2 cup pork stock  (or chicken)
½ cup balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp paprika
2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 sprig of rosemary
Salt and pepper

In a sauce pot, heat oil and butter until butter is melted. Add shallots and garlic and cook on low heat until both are soft. Be careful not to let them brown too much. Add tomato paste and cook on med cook until paste has a nice rusty color. Add stock and vinegar and mix well. Add paprika, rosemary and cayenne. Bring to a boil then simmer until sauce reduces by a quarter.  Season with salt and pepper. Brush on finished ribs.
