Memphis BBQ Spaghetti

Recipe By Savory Spice Test Kitchen

Recipe By Savory Spice Test Kitchen

This classic Memphis BBQ side combines the flavors of barbecue sauce with the key components of a marinara sauce to create a hybrid Italian-Southern dish. It's typically served with leftover smoked pulled pork, but you could throw your leftover barbecue chicken or brisket in there too.

Ingredients

2 Tbsp. olive oil

1 yellow onion, diced

1 green bell pepper, diced








1/2 cup dark brown sugar

1 (28 oz.) can tomato sauce

1 1/2 cups water

1/2 cup apple cider vinegar


2 Tbsp. lemon juice

1 lbs. dried spaghetti

1 lbs. pulled pork

Directions

Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion and bell pepper and cook until softened, about 5 min. Stir in garlic. Whisk tomato powder and water together to make a paste; stir paste into onion mixture. Stir in all of the spices and the brown sugar. Add tomato sauce, water, vinegar, Worcestershire, and lemon juice and stir to combine. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to low. Simmer, uncovered, for about 2 hours, stirring often. Meanwhile, bring a pot of salted water to a boil and cook spaghetti according to package directions. When sauce is almost done, stir in pulled pork so it can warm through. Serve cooked spaghetti in bowls with a generous helping of sauce and pork spooned over each portion.
