BBQ Sauce

With July 4th right around the corner there is sure to be some BBQing in the mix. What ever you're grilling a tasty sauce can make your meal. Here is a simple recipe that does not involve cooking the sauce, so it can be made quickly. The substitution of the tomato paste for tomato sauce gives it a rich 'slow cooked' flavor.


Wet ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 1/2 cup ketchup

  • 1/8 cup tomato paste

  • 1/8 cup water or flat beer

  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons lemon or orange juice (lemon for tangy and orange for a sweeter sauce)

  • 2 tablespoons dark molasses or honey (the honey provide a more delicate flavor)

  • 3 tablespoons dark brown sugar (for an extra kick try Darkhorse Whisky Smoked Brown Sugar)

  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

  • 2 tablespoons prepared mustard (I use a stone ground mustard)

Dry ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard

  • 2 teaspoons onion powder or freeze-dried onions ground

  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder or freeze-dried garlic ground

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper (optional)

  • Salt (to taste)

Mix together all wet ingredients well, taste and add any additional sweetener or vinegar if desired.

Add in the dry ingredients one at a time, being sure to incorporate each one well before adding the next.
