I’ve had several requests for my homemade BBQ sauce recipe. Turns out…it’s a high five recipe! Doesn’t get much easier than that!
Homemade BBQ Sauce
3/4 cup ketchup (I use an organic, no high fructose corn syrup variety)
2 Tablespoon minced onion
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon liquid smoke
1 Tablespoon molasses, honey or sucanat (optional)
Mix ingredients in a small sauce pan. Simmer for a few minutes until flavors are blended.
I mix this up as a dip for our meatballs or popcorn chicken…YUM!
Sometimes I put a few pieces of chicken into the crock pot, dump the sauce over the top, and let it cook slowly for a few hours. Easiest main dish ever!
Or, sometimes I add it to leftover roast beef for BBQ beef sandwiches.
What all do you put BBQ sauce on?
Oh, and by the way – I really have no idea what “liquid smoke” is. I’m assuming that it isn’t the healthiest ingredient in the world. BUT…it makes for a yummy, easy BBQ sauce. This version is MUCH healthier than the HFCS versions I could buy at the store.
If I ever figure out how to turn smoke into a liquid and put it into a bottle all by myself, you’ll be the first to know.
