I’ve been looking at this recipe for a year or two trying to imagine what barbecued pecans would taste like. The price of pecans really had more to do with me not trying it. What if I hated them and wasted all those pecans? I made them. They are addictive!
Now, they are not spicy but they are very flavorful. If you want them spicier, just add more hot sauce or vice versa.
They would make great gifts!
2 tbsps butter, melted
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp ketchup
1 tsp hot sauce (use more or less depending on how hot you want them)
4 cups pecans halves
salt to taste
Combine butter, Worcestershire, ketchup and hot pepper sauce and pour over pecans. Stir gently until pecans are coated.
Spread on a cookie sheet that has been covered with parchment paper.
Bake at 300º for 30 minutes, stirring at regular intervals to prevent any burning.
After baking, immediately spread on paper towels to cool; sprinkle generously with salt while still hot so the salt will stick.
Cool and store in an airtight container.
