Blue Suede B-B-Shoe Sauce

We think The King would be delighted to dig in to some ribs donned with this unusual berry, beery, BBQ sauce.


Add the ingredients to a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 8-10 minutes. If the sauce isn't thick enough for your liking, or if you're in a hurry, add 2 tsp of cornstarch blended with 1/8 cup of Steam Whistle to the boiling sauce and simmer until thickened.


*This sauce is recommended on duck or turkey, or any poultry for that matter but works just as wonderfully as a baste for steak.
This recipe was created by Steam Whistle staffer, Ellen McKinney.


  • 3 cups of fresh or frozen blueberries (strawberries would work well too)
  • 3/4 cup of white vinegar
  • 3/4 cup of Steam Whistle Pilsner
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp of ground cloves (ginger would also make an interesting substitute)
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Optional: 1/2 tsp red pepper
