- ⅓ cup brown sugar, tightly packed
- 4 cups beef broth
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
- ½ teaspoon black pepper

- Stir in the brown sugar.
- Pour in 1 cup of the beef broth. Simmer until the mixture has reduced and is thickened, about 10 minutes.

- Transfer the bacon mixture to a blender. Add in honey, paprika, and black pepper. Blend for about 30 seconds. The mixture should be chunky, not smooth.
