Simple Homemade Barbecue Sauce !

Basic Barbecue Sauce

This traditional American barbecue sauce is good on chicken, spareribs and hamburgers as well as beef brisket sandwiches. Because the sauce contains sugar, it burns easily and should be brushed on during the last 10-15 minutes of cooking. Use any remaining sauce to finish, just before serving.


2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 onion, finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 ½ cups ketchup
½ cup cider vinegar
¼ cup Worcestershire sauce
½ cup sugar
1 tbsp chili powder
½ tsp cayenne pepper

In a saucepan over medium heat, warm the oil. Add the onion and garlic and cook gently, stirring for about 3 minutes. Add the ketchup, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, sugar, chili powder and cayenne. Reduce heat and simmer, partially covered until the sauce had thickened slightly, for about 20 minutes. Makes about 2 ½ cups.
