When It comes to BBQ, I’m not one to usually reach for a sauce. I don’t let BBQ sauce come near my brisket, and as for ribs, I usually prefer a dry rub, but sometimes, sauce is the right answer. When I do use a BBQ sauce, I almost always make my own either by starting with a good base BBQ sauce, or by starting from scratch. This BBQ sauce recipe is somewhat of a hybrid as you start with ketchup, which is less time consuming that making your own tomato based sauce for the base, so I thought that this would be a good basic BBQ sauce to start with.
- about 5 minutes of prep
- 10 minutes to cook
- 1 cup
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 3 dash hot pepper sauce
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 1/8 cup of coffee (it can be leftover from the day before)
- Add all of the ingredients to a sauce pan and bring to a simmer.
- Stir for one minute to dissolve the brown sugar
- Take the sauce pan off of the heat and allow to cool to room temperature
The sauce is ready to use for dippin’ or for brushing on you’re grilled chicken for the last few minutes of cooking. Enjoy!
