BBQ sauce: one of the most essential parts of any successful BBQ dish. This is why today we will be making the best reviewed BBQ sauce recipe on the web. It is very simple to prepare, yet it is enough to take your barbecue dish to the next level!
Because this is a very basic sauce, it leaves a lot of room for customization. Some ideas would be adding molasses, liquid smoke, cayenne pepper, ground dates, etc. If you want to make a version with less sugar, you could use apple juice instead of water, and because that introduces sweetness, reduce the sugar used. Feel free to share any changes you made to the recipe in the comments below!
- 2 cups ketchup
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
- 5 tablespoons light brown sugar
- 5 tablespoons sugar
- 1/2 tablespoon fresh ground pepper
- 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoon Lemon juice
- 1/2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
Best BBQ Sauce Recipe (Homemade BBQ Sauce)
Start by adding the ingredients one by one in a bowl. You might want to be careful with the size of the bowl you use, so it is not too small.
When all the ingredients are in the bowl, mix everything as good as you can with a spoon. It will probably not look uniform, as the water tends to float on top of the heavier ingredients, but do not worry.
Now pour the mix into a pan and boil it down. You are looking to thicken its consistency, while still keeping the sauce pourable. Keep stirring the sauce so the ingredients do not separate.
The sauce is ready! Use a sterilized bottle (or other container) to keep it in the fridge for at least one day before using it on your favorite dish.
