High Five Recipes: Homemade Barbeque SauceBy
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 T. minced onion
1/4 t. garlic powder
1 t. liquid smoke
1 T. molasses, honey or sucanat
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…and 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.
