Makes. 6 cups.  Total Cook time 50 minutes

A little sweet and tangy flavors is what makes Kansas style sauce so good.


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 medium onion, small chopped
  • 1 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 cups ketchup
  • 1/4 cup dijon-style mustard
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced, and zest
  • 1 Tablespoon cup steak sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon cup molasses
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic, minced

Make Some Sauce:

In a large bowl, mix the ketchup, mustard, vinegar, Worcestershire, lemon juice, lemon zest, steak sauce, molasses, honey, hot sauce, minced garlic, chili powder, cardamom, black pepper, salt and brown sugar.

Heat oil butter Medium high in a large saucepan (2 quart). Add the onions and sauté until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the wet ingredient mixture. Simmer over medium heat for 20 minutes to let the flavors come together and the vinegar to mellow out a little bit.

Using either an emersion (stick) blender, or a stand blender, puree the mixture until smooth. You can omit this step entirely if you are okay with the texture of the onions and garlic in the sauce.

This will stay good for up to a week in the fridge too. To last longer, you can substitute the butter with vegetable oil or olive oil when cooking the onions.
