For the Balsamic Barbecue Sauce:

For the Balsamic Barbecue Sauce:

Yield: 1 3/4 cups
  1. Set a 1-quart saucepan over medium heat and add the olive oil. Add the red onion and garlic and saute until the onions are lightly caramelized, about 5 to 7 minutes. Add the balsamic vinegar and brown sugar to the pan and bring to a boil. Continue to cook until the vinegar is nearly completely reduced, about 10 minutes. Add the red wine and reduce by half, about 5 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and cook until the sauce is slightly thickened, about 7 to 8 minutes. Remove from the heat, discard the rosemary and puree using an immersion blender. Use immediately or store in an airtight plastic container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
