Did you know you can use your Instant Pot® to make barbecue sauce? Well, you totally can. I used mine to make Honey Chipotle Barbecue Sauce, and it was ah-maz-ing. It is sweet and spicy and such a nice change from my favorite bottled sauce (which I use frequently, believe me). I will be sharing another barbecue chicken Instant Pot® recipe soon that features this swell sauce, but in the meantime, make up a batch to use on chicken, fish, tri tip or anything else you would throw on the grill.
UPDATED: After some reader feedback and more recipe testing, I reduced the amount of water in this recipe from 2 cups to 1 cup. You can simmer the sauce further to thicken to your taste. So many of our dinners start with a good tomato sauce. Sometimes (a lot of the time), I open a jar. I am busy and like lots of families, I need to get dinner on the table quickly. Nothing compares to the ease of jarred sauce, but this homemade pasta sauce recipe is pretty darn close and tastes WAY better. The Instant Pot® does a great job of giving it that long-simmered flavor in a fraction of the time.
