EASY Homemade BBQ Sauce

September 21, 2013 Leave a comment

Okay, so it’s not totally homemade but definitely easy!  There are 2 ways you can make this with ingredients you probably already have on hand.  And if you find ketchup without the HFCS (that high fructose stuff), all the better.

1.)  Mix ketchup and brown sugar;  2 parts ketchup/1 part brown sugar.

2.)  Mix steak sauce and brown sugar; 2 parts steak sauce/1 part brown sugar.

See a trend?  Brown sugar is the star ingredient here.  You don’t even have to cook it.  Just stir.  The brown sugar just magically melts in the into saucy goodness.  You can experiment to your taste preference.  If you like it sweeter, add more brown sugar.  Add a touch of Tabasco or other pepper sauce of your choice for spice.  So, when you’re in a pinch and don’t have the store-bought bottle, don’t fret!  (Unless you don’t have any of the above ingredients.  Then boo-hoo you!)
