Bold & Beautiful BBQ Sauce


BBQ  sauce is a really fun thing to make at home and much healthier than store bought. I spent my afternoon adding spices and tasting the sauce until it was right and I am very happy with the final results!

I used 1 tsp of the crushed red chili peppers and it had a nice kick of heat to it, if you prefer less spice I recommend using 1/2 tsp.

  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 2 tbs soy sauce
  • 2 tbs worcestershire
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tbs lemon juice
  • 1 tbs cooking molasses
  • 6 tbs brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 3 tsp smoked pepper
  • 1 tsp fresh cracked black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp seasoning salt
  • 1/2 – 1 tsp crushed red chili peppers (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp butter
  • 2 large Bay leaves
  • 3 tbs chopped red onion
  • 6 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  1. In a large pot over medium high heat bring all ingredients to a boil.
  2. Reduce to a simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally .
  3. Remove from heat and blend with an immersion blender.
  4. Strain through a fine mesh strainer to remove any chucks.

***Store in fridge for up to a month***
