Homemade BBQ Sauce

Did you ever go to make some BBQ and find you were out of sauce?  Well I bet you have everything you need in the pantry and your refrigerator to make a batch of your own!


What you need:

  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon lemon pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 8-oz cans of tomato sauce
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/8 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon liquid smoke (optional)

How to Do it:

Heat the oil in a large sauce pan.  Sauté the onion until they are slightly softened.  Add the garlic and continue to cook for 2-3 more minutes.

Add the remaining ingredients and simmer for 45-60 minutes, stirring often.  The sauce will be darkened and thick.

Remove from heat and allow to cool.

Makes about 2 cups of sauce.  Store in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
