Let’s hope this great weather continues and if you’re going to be having a BBQ this weekend, here’s a really simple homemade BBQ sauce recipe that you can knock up in no time using 10 ingredients easily available in the kitchen cupboards!
A really good BBQ involves preparation and ideally marination of your meat/fish to ensure it has flavour throughout and won’t dry up when being cooked over high heat.
This homemade BBQ sauce recipe can be used to marinate your meat/fish anywhere from 30 mins to 48 hours in advance (the longer the better!), as well as being used as a basting sauce to provide extra moisture and flavour whilst cooking plus a little extra left over to glaze the meat/fish once cooked.
This homemade BBQ sauce recipe will make enough for 1x rack of baby back ribs or 6x large chicken thighs or 6x pork chops, for example, and includes the initial marinade, basting sauce and final glaze – just be sure to save enough for the basting and glaze at the end!
Preparation time for this homemade BBQ sauce recipe is under 10 minutes.
p.s. if you’re doing ribs, once marinated, try cooking them on low in the oven (max. 100°C or 90°C for fan oven) for 3-4 hours before BBQ-ing to get the meat succulent and tender, then finish off on the BBQ with the baste and glaze. Guaranteed to be delicious!
Homemade BBQ sauce recipe ingredients:
Mix all the below into a mixing bowl then transfer to saucepan to heat gently and infuse all the flavours. Finally, put some aside for your baste and glaze during cooking.
