BBQ Sauce: An easy, sweet, and tangy 30-minute recipe you will want to eat again and again.
Making this homemade Easy (Barbecue) BBQ Sauce is almost effortless. It’s time for grilling, right? Do you like your ribs, chicken or beef smothered in sauce? Don whipped this sauce up in just 30 minutes. Grill your meat, make the sauce while your meat is cooking, and then smother it on at the table. Yum!
Don’s our grillmaster and he recently made us Spectacular Grilled Dry-Rub Baby Back Ribs, ribs that are so amazing we eat them without sauce. We had about a half rack left over. We saved the leftovers in the fridge and brought it out for lunch a couple of days later. Just for a change of pace Don covered them in homemade Easy (Barbecue) BBQ Sauce and reheated them covered in the oven while I baked Amazing Gluten-Free French Bread. The sauce bubbled and reduced to a sweet glaze that stuck to the ribs. Well almost. Half the fun of eating ribs is licking your fingers to get every delicious bit of BBQ sauce.
Here’s how you make the sauce. Simply combine ketchup, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, apple cider vinegar and dark molasses. If you like it spicy, add some Tabasco. Then paint it on your meat and continue grilling the meat for 20 minutes.
Don just eyeballs the quantities, mixes it up, tastes it and adjusts the flavoring by adding a little more of what he thinks it lacks. Roughly, here are the portions for 2 cups: 1 cup ketchup, 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard, 1 tablespoon Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce, 1/4 cup vinegar, 3 tablespoons molasses. If you like it tangy, reduce the molasses and let the vinegar dominate the flavor. Don and I like it sweet so he adds a bit more molasses until it tastes great. Don’t be afraid to experiment!
What You Need
You need measuring cups and spoons, a wire whisk and brush to brush the sauce on the meat. And of course an outdoor grill!
