HOMEMADE BARBECUE SAUCE

I have one thing to say, though: STOP buying Barbecue Sauce. Just stop. Too much sugar, too much sodium, too much “X” words in the ingredients that we can’t pronounce… it’s just overboard.

You don’t need all that and it is much better when you can make your own, especially when it is this easy.

I use this Barbecue Sauce on pork, chicken, meatballs, and on anything else that can somehow be turned into a sweet and sour deal.

INGREDIENTS FOR HONEY BARBECUE SAUCE

Also, you should know that this is not about some fancy ingredients. All this involves is some ketchup, a bit of honey, apple cider vinegar, and a perfect dose of worcestershire sauce. All together cooked down to a perfect thickness and slathered over your favorite chops. Or chicken.

ENJOY!

    Juuuuust a tiny tad too acidic for our family, but still SO delicious. It’s the recipe we’ll be using from now on – just lessening the amount of vinegar. I did add more honey before serving because I’m addicted to sickeningly sweet sauce, lol, but we tried it before that and it was awesome.

    1. Katerina Petrovska says:

      I’m glad everyone enjoyed it! Thank you for chiming in! 🙂

  2. Ashley says:

    I added 1tablespoon of mesquite liquid smoke instead of lemon juice and it’s amazing.

    1. Katerina Petrovska says:

      That’s wonderful! I’m very happy you loved it! Thank YOU! 🙂

  3. Shar says:

    Is there any reason you used ketchup instead of tomato sauce?
    Has anybody made this with Tomato Sauce?

  4. Patty says:

    Wow I’m making this as I’m commenting and I already know it’s gonna be delish I just added a tiny bit of sweet chilly sauce also thanks for sharing I’m going to be putting it on my chicken breasts tonight

  5. Sharon says:

    Absolutely THE best bbq sauce I have ever had. My hubs, who is not a fan of bbq, loves it! Have only had it on ribs, but going to make pulled beef next week.

  6. Ash says:

    Added two tablespoons of apricot jam and some chipotle pepper and smoked paprika, tastes amazing. I always use this on wings now

  7. Vergie Ervine says:

    I want to make about 12 pints how much of everything would I need?

  8. Pam Frederick says:

    What is a serving size on this barbeque sauce? I saw it’s 1 smart point per serving but need to know how much idea serving?

    Plan to make this recipe so hope to hear from you soon.

    Thanks,

    1. Pam Frederick says:

      The comment should say I need to know how much one serving is (e.g. one cup, half a cup, etc.)

      Thanks

    2. Katerina Petrovska says:

      Hi!! That should be 2 tablespoons. Will update it right away – I changed recipe cards and the all the serving sizes didn’t transfer through, unfortunately. Thank you for letting me know!!
