Very nice flavor. I served the sauce with baked salmon instead of beef. I cooked down the sauce a bit longer to really condense the flavor. I put 1/4 tsp of shitimi togarashi (Japanese pepper powder) since I didn't have jalapeno pepper. It added a kick. I also used Scotch instead of Bourbon. I'll make it again with other meat.
Filet Mignon with Blueberry-Bourbon Barbecue Sauce
Blueberries, loaded with antioxidants, have a balance of sweet and sour, which makes them an excellent base for a rich, tangy barbecue sauce. Fresh thyme rubbed on the steak dovetails wonderfully with the blueberries. Serve with fresh tomato wedges.

Like this sauce! It's so easy to make, and yet so yummy. I added a pinch of smoked sea salt and ancho chili powder. Will definitely make again.
Very good! I added about 1/4 tsp of chipotle powder to the sauce and loved it. The sauce would be great with duck or pork and braised cabbage, too.
Fed one of the leftovers to a co-worker and got high praise. The last filet is going to be topped with melted provolone and sauteed onion on a slider roll for a treat tonight.
